Description of Stephen Ministry

Pastors will always be on the front lines of care as first-responders, but there are normally many more on-going care needs than pastors can effectively meet by themselves. Stephen Ministry provides a biblical solution; this international program equips lay persons to provide distinctively Christian, confidential, one-on-one care to others experiencing life crises or difficulties.

Stephen Ministers serving in this church-commissioned role are members of CommPres, are carefully selected, and received 50+ hours of training. They attend to their care-receivers through effective listening skills, prayer, and encouragement — all within a safe, confidential environment. The names of care-receivers are never mentioned. Ministers generally meet with care-receivers about an hour a week, for as long as there is a need. They also meet twice monthly for supervision, support and continuing education. Stephen Ministers make a two-year commitment to the program.

Potential Care-Receivers Are People Who Are . . .

  • lonely
  • struggling with parenting
  • grieving the loss of a loved one
  • separated or in the process of divorce
  • terminally ill, and their families
  • experiencing job loss or financial setbacks
  • experiencing crisis situations
  • facing legal difficulties
  • struggling with their faith
  • separated from family
  • recovering substance abusers
  • experiencing hurt from abuse
  • adjusting to a life-changing situation:  retirement, stay-at-home mom, new parent, empty nester, college graduate, etc.

What Do Stephen Ministers Do?

  • Pray
  • Listen
  • Explore feelings
  • Share Christ’s love
  • Maintain confidentiality
  • Attend to the care-giving process and leave the results to God
  • Walk with people who are journeying to wholeness
  • Serve in this ministry of presence and companionship

Stephen Ministers do not “fix” their care-receivers.  Rather, they are committed Christ-Followers who provide confidential, one-to-one, Christian care to people who are experiencing a difficult time. Stephen Ministers are the Care-Givers and Christ is the Cure-Giver.
