stephen ministries

The Stephen Ministry is based on bringing care, comfort and support to those who are hurting or experiencing hard places in life.  Stephen Ministers  provide care for individuals of all ages who need to be  touched and supported during times of struggle, recovery from loss of a loved one, divorce, sickness and those who are dying and their families.  Each minister is a caring indivual who has been completely trained to stand  with a person going through difficult times.  They provide the time and commitment that a pastor is unable to provide.  We have trained individuals in our church who are caring and have been equipped to help anyone who needs care.  All is confidential.
