Stephen Ministry was named after Stephen, found in Acts 6:5, who was the first person commissioned by the Apostles to provide a caring ministry to those in need.
 
A free and confidential service, Stephen Ministry pairs individuals who desire care with people who have been trained as Stephen Ministers to offer them, not advice or counsel, but Christian support and care.
 
By extending Christian love and care we can bring wholeness and a closer relationship to God to those in our midst who are hurting and in need of grace, protection, and love.

  • Grief,
