Stephen Ministry

No one should have to hurt alone.

There are times when each of us experiences difficulties: loss of a loved one, spiritual crisis, cancer, hospitalization, imprisonment, disability, discouragement, divorce, rehabilitation, job loss, loneliness, and other challenges.
God never intended for us to go through these experiences alone. That’s why God has brought us together as a congregation – and why we have Stephen Ministry.
Stephen Ministers are members of our congregation who have received 50 hours of caregiving training to minister to people experiencing a crisis, facing a challenge, or simply going through a tough time. A Stephen Minister will meet with you – privately and confidentially – on a weekly basis to listen, care, encourage, support, and remind you of Christ’s presence in your life.

If you would like to learn more about Stephen Ministry for yourself, a family member, or a friend, neighbor, coworker, or someone else you know – inside or outside of our congregation – contact the Congregational Care Office at (321) 255-7378.
