What Do Stephen Ministers Do?

Stephen Ministry's ValuesStephen Ministers are persons from our congregation who have gone through 50 hours of training to provide high-quality Christ-centered care to individuals experiencing a crisis or challenge. After the training, Stephen Ministers are each assigned a care receiver and meet with that care receiver for about an hour a week. This caring relationship will last for as long as the care receiver needs it. Everything a care receiver says to his/her Stephen Minister is kept confidential. The Stephen Minister does not try to solve problems; rather he/she listens, cares, prays, and helps the care receiver find his/her path to healing and wholeness.
