What is Stephen Ministry? Stephen Ministry is a one-to-one ministry by trained, caring lay ministers who have responded to Christ’s call to “carry each other’s burdens, and in this way, you will fulfill the law of Christ.”  Galatians 6:2  
A Stephen Minister is ... a child of God who walks beside a hurting person. a caring Christian friend who really listens. a layperson who has received 50 hours of training in how to provide distinctively Christian care. 
A Stephen Minister is NOT ... a counselor, a therapist,  a casual visitor. 
Who can Benefit? Anyone going through difficult times who needs someone to care, listen, and share God’s love with them on a one-to-one confidential basis.
