Stephen Ministry plants the seed of hope and healing in a person whose life has been touched by a crisis or tragedy. You may request a Stephen Minister whenever you are experiencing a loss of any kind. Here are just a few examples of when you might want to have a Stephen Minister:
- Death of a loved one
- Loss of job
- New in area with no family or friends
- Chronic illness
- Serious illness or hospitalization
- Struggling with an addiction
Stephen Ministers are assigned one-to-one, male to male and female to female, in a confidential caring relationship. You may request a Stephen Minister through one of the pastors or through our Care Minister, Nancy Nowiszewski, at 816.228.5300.
Stephen Ministry is a confidential and a supervised ministry. Stephen Ministers are not counselors: they are trained Christian caregivers.
