Stephen Ministry is Christ caring for people through people. It provides confidential, one-to-one Christian care to people who are going through a difficult time. A Stephen Minister is a well-trained caregiver who listens, cares, prays, encourages, and offers the love of Christ during a time of need.

Love one another as I have loved you - John 15:12

Rejoice with those rejoice;mourn with those who mourn. - Romans 12:15

Encourage one another and build each other up - 1 Thess. 5:11a

Bear on another's burdens, and in this way you will fullfill the Law of Christ. - Galatians 6:2
