What Is Stephen Ministry?

The Stephen Ministry provides congregations with the training, resources, and ongoing support to organize and equip a team of lay caregivers–called Stephen Ministers–in the congregation.
Stephen Ministers provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care and support to people experiencing grief, divorce, cancer, job loss, loneliness, disability, relocation, and other life difficulties.
