What is a Stephen Minister?
Stephen Ministers are believers who bring distinctively Christian care to those in need and are bound by confidentiality. They express Christ's care for others—listening and comforting, and employing the tools of faith—while meeting faithfully for about an hour each week with their care receivers. They commit to 2 years of service and 50 hours of training.

Anyone who needs Christian support while experiencing difficulties in life (which may include divorce, grief, death of a loved one, loss of a job, loneliness, hospitalization, terminal illnesses) could benefit from a Stephen Minister. Having someone to care, to listen, to share God’s love with you can help you get through the confusion, stress, or loneliness you may be experiencing.
