Stephen Ministry is a church-wide caring ministry that equips you to provide one-to-one Christian care to people who are experiencing a life challenge or crisis. Stephen Ministers provide an extension of pastoral care because they are able to reach more people with Christian care than pastors can by themselves.

Receive 50 hours of initial training in important caring ministry skills including listening, assertiveness and confidentiality.
Are commissioned as Stephen Ministers after completing their initial training
