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┬ácommissioned by the apostles to provide caring ministry to those in need.
