Stephen Ministry
Leader: Deb Strohbeck

Stephen Ministry 

Stephen Ministry is our congregation's one-to-one caregiving ministry.  God works through Stephen Minsters to plant a seed of hope and healing in a person whose life seems barren and forlorn because of some crisis or tragedy.
Stephen Ministry shows God's mercy, care and compassion to someone who is hurting through some difficulty in life and needs a caring Christian friend for awhile.  Stephen Ministry IS NOT  a professional medical service.

What do Stephen Ministers do?
They Listen; Explore feelings; Pray; Share Christ's love; Maintain confidentiality; Attend to the caregiving process and leave the results to God.

Stephen Ministers care for people who are:
Grieving; In a crisis; In need of long-term care; Dying; Hospitalized; Divorcing; Experiencing losses as they age; Going through a crisis of childbirth; The family and friends of people in crisis.
