Stephen Ministry is a confidential Lay Caring ministry grounded in Jesus' command to love one another. Through one-to-one caring relationships, those who are hurting receive the love and care they need to support them. Everyone goes through difficult times and having someone to care, to listen, and to share God's love with you can help you get through the confusion, stress, or loneliness you may be experiencing. Those extending care are referred to as Care Givers and recipients are known as Care Receivers.
