In the book of Acts, Stephen was chosen to provide caring ministry to those in need. Since the time of the Apostles, caring ministry has been considered a hallmark of the Christian faith community. Stephen Ministers are lay members of this congregation – Christian men and women – trained to provide one-to-one care to people experiencing a difficult time in life; such as grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, relocation, or separation due to military deployment. A Stephen Minister may be able to offer the support you or a loved one needs when dealing with these challenges. Stephen Ministers come from all walks of life. Their commondality? A passion for bringing Christ’s love and car to people during a time of need.
