Stephen Ministry

In our fast-paced, increasingly impersonal world, it feels great to have someone who will:

  • Really listen
  • Take time to care
  • See you through a tough time
  • Provide encouragement instead of advice
  • Be a loving, caring friend
  • Faithfully pray for you

That person is available. He/She serves as a Stephen Minister, named for Stephen in the New Testament who was dedicated to the care and service of others. Stephen Ministry provides care for those dealing with:

  • Grief and Loss
  • Life Transitions
  • Relationship Problems

Stephen Ministers are lay caregivers who receive more than 30 hours of training in Christian caregiving and are carefully matched with care receivers by gender and pertinent life experiences. They are gifted servants who are commissioned by and supervised by the church and who work in strictest confidence.

To inquire about receiving the services of a Stephen Minister, please contact Carolyn Wheat, the Stephen Ministry Coordinator, for a confidential conversation, 214.246.3443.
