Stephen Ministers

Stephen Minsters are lay-people who have a burden for others in crisis

Stephen Ministers are selected, trained and supervised to build healthy relationships with the care receivers assigned to them. These relationships have good boundaries and a safe, confidential environment.

Once selected as a good candidate, Ministers go through 50 hours of training before they are ready to give care to a Receiver. After the initial instruction, there is ongoing training through regularly scheduled meetings with your Stephen Ministry Support Team.


You would be a good candidate if you desire to:

  • Pray
  • Listen
  • Explore Feelings
  • Share Christ's love
  • Maintain confidentiality
  • Give care but understand ultimately God will produce the results He desires
  • Be a companion and know sometimes that is all that is required
  • Commit to the training time as well as weekly meetings with your care receiver

Once you submit your application, you will be contacted by the Stephen Ministry Team Leader for the next step.
