Stephen Ministry congregations equip and empower lay caregivers to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.

stephenMinistry

Stephen Ministers are congregation members trained by Stephen Leaders to offer high-quality one-to-one Christian care to people going through a tough time. They receive 50 hours of training before being matched with a care receiver. They meet with their care receiver once a week for about an hour. Stephen Ministers attend regular supervision and receive continuing education.

Care Receivers are people who receive care from a trained Stephen Minister. These are people struggling through a difficult time in their life‚ÄĒexperiencing grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, or some other life crisis. Relationships between a care receiver and a Stephen Minister are confidential with women being matched to women and men to men. If a care receiver's needs exceed what a Stephen Minister can provide, the Stephen Minister team makes a referral to an appropriate mental health professional or other community resource.
