Bear one another’s burdens,

and in this way you will fulfill

the law of Christ

(Galatians 6:2, NRSV).


Stephen Ministry is a one-to-one lay caring ministry. Stephen Ministers are congregation members trained by Stephen Leaders to offer high-quality, one-to-one Christian care to people going through tough times. Anyone struggling through a difficult time in life – experiencing grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, retirement, financial setback, empty nesting, or some other life crises can receive care from a Stephen Minister.


A Stephen Minister usually provides care to one person at a time, meeting with that person once a week for about an hour. Twice a month, Stephen Ministers gather with their Stephen Leaders for supervision and continuing education.
