Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministers are members of our congregation trained to provide one-to-one, Christ-centered care. They have a compas­sionate heart for those who are hurting, and they’re equipped with caring ministry skills by our congregation’s Stephen Leaders. A Stephen Minister typically has one care re­ceiver at a time and meets with that person once a week to listen, care, pray, encourage, and offer emotional and spiritual support.

 Stephen Ministers provide care to individu­als facing difficult times in life—grief, cancer, divorce, financial difficulties, hospitalization, chronic illness, job loss, disability, a spiritual crisis, or other life struggles.

If you would like to speak with a Stephen Minister about difficulties you are facing, contact our Parish Office at (586) 752-9611
