STEPHEN MINISTRY

Christ-centered care for those who are hurting


are you going through a difficult time?

A STEPHEN MINISTER CAN HELP.

Stephen Ministers are members of our congregation who listen, care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support to people going through a crisis or a difficult time in life:

  • Is life more difficult than you can handle alone right now?
  • Are your health, your attitude, or your relationships suffering?
  • Are you adjusting to a new job, change in marital status, a serious illness, the death of a loved one, or a recent move?
  • Would you like to have someone to help you get through the confusion, stress, or loneliness you may be experiencing?
  • Would you like to have someone in your life you can talk to and who really cares?


Stephen Ministers have received specialized training to provide one-to-one, confidential Christ-centered care to people experiencing these challenges, in addition to many other difficulties in life.

What is a Stephen Minister?

A Christian, lay person who has gone through extensive hours of training to gain the skills necessary to offer supportive, Christ-centered love and care to people in the congregation and the community.


A Stephen Minister is not a professional counselor or therapist, but has been trained to help meet the needs of individuals who are in any life crisis that would benefit from a caring, Christian friend.


Since 1975, Stephen Ministry has been serving congregations in more than 180 Christian denominations across the U.S. and Canada, and in 30 countries. More than 13,000 congregations have enrolled in Stephen Ministry, and more than 600,000 laypeople have received Stephen Minister training.
