Stephen Ministry

What is Stephen Ministry?

Stephen Ministry is a lay ministry designed to help people going through tough transitions in life.  They are not therapists, but they actively listen and walk alongside people experiencing grief, loss, or tense relationships. Stephen Ministers don’t judge and or share details of those who trust them.

Stephen Ministers are available for one-on-one weekly visits, to be a presence of Christian love and caring for those who need support.

On Sunday, June 24, 2018, five congregation members were commissioned as Stephen ministers. Rev. Nancy Lynn offered a panel discussion with Tom Jackson, Amy Kennedy, Granville Lee, Elaine Shaw, and Jean Wong as her message that morning. Listen to their conversation below:
