Become a Stephen Minister

Stephen Ministers are laypeople. They are Christian men and women that initially receive over 50 hours of formal training to provide one-to-one care to people.

Stephen Ministers come from all walks of life. But, they all have one thing in common. Stephen Ministers share in a passion for bringing Christ’s love and care to people during a time of need.

Stephen Ministers work with people who may be experiencing a difficult time in life, like:

  • grief over the loss of a loved one,
  • a divorce
  • job loss
  • chronic or terminal illness,
  • relocation, and more
