Stephen Ministers are trained leaders who provide one-on-one spiritual and emotional care focusing on their care receivers’ needs. They offer care, support, and encouragement to people whose lives have been turned upside down by crisis or tragedy. They minister through active listening, a caring presence, and prayer. If you are experiencing a personal crisis, you don’t need to walk through it alone because a Stephen Minister is ready to walk beside you.

Stephen Ministry is a confidential ministry. Those receiving care can be confident that their identity and the issues they discuss will remain private.
