Come to me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
What is Stephen Ministry?
Stephen Ministry is a confidential ministry providing one-to-one Christian care for individuals in our congregation and community.There are currently over 12,000 enrolled congregations worldwide and more than 600,000 Stephen Ministers who have been trained. Stephen Ministers are not clergy, rather they are church members who feel called by God to a ministry of compassion and have received 50 hours of care giving training to minister to people experiencing a crisis, facing a challenge, or simply going through a tough time such as:
Terminal Illness Loss of a Loved One
Spiritual Crisis Job Loss/Relocation
Hospitalization Prodigal Children
God never intended for us to go through these experiences alone, that’s why we have Stephen ministry. This is a confidential ministry; the identity of those receiving care and what takes place in each caring relationship remains private. If you feel that you might benefit from a relationship with a Stephen Minister, please contact Laura Burger 513-231-4172 or firstname.lastname@example.org
