Are you someone who is feeling challenged by events in your life?
We all experience challenges in life—times
when we could benefit from the support of a caring
Christian friend. Stephen Ministers are ready to
provide the emotional and spiritual care we need when faced with a crisis or difficulty, such as--
· Loss of a loved one
· Divorce or separation
· Loneliness or discouragement
· Spiritual crises
· Unemployment, retirement, or a job crisis
· Chronic or terminal illness
· Reproductive challenges
STEPHEN MINISTRY seeks to be a living presence of the caring Christ in our community. It is a one-on-one confidential ministry by trained and caring Christians. Stephen Ministers seek to bring Christ’s healing love to people in need.
The symbol for Stephen Ministry is a cross and circle along with a broken person and a whole person. The broken person behind the cross symbolizes the brokenness in our lives due to our sin and imperfections. The whole person in front of the cross symbolizes the wholeness we can only receive through the cross of Jesus. The circle symbolizes both the wholeness we receive through Christ and God’s unending love for us.
Are you someone who might be able to help others with life challenges?
Stephen Ministry training will equip you,
and our congregation will support you, so
that you can show God’s mercy, care, and
compassion to another who is hurting.
You will walk beside your care receiver,
pray for him or her, and help him or her
work through life’s difficulties.
Through this ministry God will bring
forth new life and renewed faith in
both your care receiver and in you
as a Stephen Minister.
Is God calling you to serve in this way?
