Becoming a Stephen Minister
Christ caring for people through people
What do Stephen Ministers do?
They listen, explore feelings, pray, share Christ’s love, maintain confidentiality, and attend to the caregiving process and leave the results to God. We 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, and more.
To become a Stephen Minister, call the office to request an application.
We conduct training sessions once or twice a year. Training includes 50 hours of participation in teaching. After Commissioning, Stephen Ministers are required to commit to two years of service and bi-monthly supervision with the Stephen Ministry peer group.
