Stephen Ministry

What Is Stephen Ministry?

Stephen Ministry offers a proven and effective way to organize, equip, and supervise a team of congregation members—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, one-to-one, Christ-centered care to people in the congregation and the community experiencing life difficulties.

Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will
fulfill the law of Christ

(Galatians 6:2, NRSV).
