Stephen Ministry is the one-to-one, caring ministry that takes place in congregations that use the Stephen Series system.

Stephen Ministry congregations equip and empower caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.

Stephen Ministers are congregation members trained by Stephen Leaders to offer high-quality, one-to-one Christian care to people going through challenging seasons of their lives. 

Stephen Ministers work alongside our pastors to care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support to people going through a difficult time, such as divorce, grief, hospitalization, unemployment, terminal illness, relocation, chronic illness, or loneliness.

 If this fits your personal goals for ministry, consider becoming a Stephen Minister.
