Offering care in the name of Jesus Christ

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry is a well-trained, one-on-one, lay caring ministry to offer care. It is a confidential, ongoing relationship focused on the needs to the individual. Stephen Ministers are people like you — caring Christians who want to make a difference in the lives of people going through difficult times.

The name “Stephen” comes from the Bible in Acts 6. Stephen was the first lay person commissioned by the apostles to provide caring ministry to those in need.
