We all experience challenges in life, times when we could benefit from the support of Christian compassionate care. Stephen Ministers are gifted, called, and committed individuals who come alongside others in our church and the wider community. They serve as an extension of pastoral care, providing confidential one-to-one support at no cost. Our Stephen Ministers are equipped through an extensive training course that is Christ-centered, Spirit-guided, and biblically based.
Stephen Ministry Training Course
This training course teaches principles and skills to equip you to provide quality, Christ-centered emotional and spiritual care for yourself and others. Your faith will be deepened as you learn and practice listening, caring, and loving others who need to be heard and valued. These relational and caring skills can be applied to all aspects of life.
