Stephen Ministry

Equipping Lay People for Caring Ministry


 What are Stephen Ministers?

  • They are lay Christians selected, trained, and supervised by Stephen Leaders to provide effective Christian
  • They make a commitment which includes 50 hours of training, ongoing supervisory meetings, and an average of a one hour visit with the person receiving their care.
  • They are named after St. Stephen, one of the first deacons in the early Christian church, commissioned by the apostles to care for the needs of people in the Christian community.
  • Recognize this as a confidential ministry in which continuous effort is expended to maintain the body of trust between the person receiving care and the caregiver.
Our Stephen Ministry Mission Statement
The Stephen Ministry is a community of caring individuals brought together around the cross of Christ.
We are called by Christ  to journey with those who are challenged by life's changes.
Through presence, listening and prayer the Holy Spirit works through Stephen Ministry providing
wholeness and healing to those in need.
