The Stephen Minister program are people who have gone through the training program and who have a passion and calling to minister to those in need. They serve the needs of the congregation in multiple ways. The program for training Stephen Ministers to be compassionate listeners is Christ centered and Biblically based. Stephen Ministers do not replace a personal contact with clergy but become an extension of that care. The purpose of Stephen Ministry is not to tell people how to handle their problems, but to offer support, suggest possible alternatives and provide Christian caring in a one-to-one situation where confidentiality is assured.
1Peter 4:10 Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms.
