Stephen Ministers: Providing Compassion and Support
Galatians 6:2 instructs the church to “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ”. Stephen Ministry is designed to do just that: assist Christians in providing compassionate, confidential, Christ-centered care to individuals who are hurting due to a death, illness, divorce, job loss, unplanned pregnancy, or other kind of life crisis. People who are hurting are matched with a trained Stephen Minister who meet with them for a period of time.
“I have served as a Stephen Minister for the past year and a half and have met with three different care receivers. The training I received through the church has helped me learn how to care for others while drawing upon the Lord. I have been privileged to listen to, pray for, and share God’s Word with my care receivers and watch the Holy Spirit at work in their lives and mine as well!”
