Do You Know Someone Who Is Hurting?
Are you experiencing a really low time in your life? Have you recently moved and don’t know anyone in the area? Perhaps you’ve lost a loved one through death or divorce or sent a child off to college or the military. Have you or a loved one been recently diagnosed with a terminal illness? Perhaps you are not experiencing a crisis in your life right now, but you know someone who is.
Our Stephen Ministers can help! Stephen Ministers have completed 50 hours of training to provide high quality, confidential, one-to-one Christian care to someone who is hurting. A Stephen Minister will meet regularly with someone to listen, care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support. All care giving is done man-to-man or woman-to-woman and is kept strictly confidential.

Our Stephen Ministers are here to care.
Would you like to become a Stephen Minister?
Stephen Ministers undergo at least 50 hours of classroom training, augmented by reading and preparation between classes. We're hoping to start a new class soon. We ask for a commitment of two years to the program, which includes meeting twice monthly for continuing education. The lessons learned are helpful in many situations beyond helping care receivers.
