What is a Stephen Minister?
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 . . .
• 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?
• 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.
