Stephen Ministers care for people facing tough times. They are lay people who have received extensive training to provide emotional and spiritual care, both within our congregation and outside of it.

Confidentiality is paramount; Stephen Ministers maintain privacy for their care receivers and regularly attend peer supervision sessions to ensure they are providing competent, compassionate support.

* Is life more than you can handle alone right now?
* Is your health, your attitude, or your relationships suffering?
* Are you adjusting to a new job, change in marital status, a serious illness, the death of a loved one, or a recent move?
* Would you like to have someone in your life that really cares?

Everyone goes through difficult times. Having someone to care, to listen, and to share God's love can help you get through the confusion, stress, or loneliness that you may be experiencing.
Are you interested in becoming a Stephen Minister?

Stephen Ministry training involves significant time and energy, but it is a deeply rewarding area of service. Ministers report they experience positive changes in their personal lives, too, which typically is the result of increased awareness and improved listening skills.

A minimum of 50 hours of preparation is required before someone becomes a Stephen Minister. Candidates attend classes in crisis theory, listening skills, assertiveness training, intervention and role-playing; trainees begin coursework in January and are commissioned in the early summer.
