Stephen Ministry is a one-to-one lay caring ministry active in the Christ Church community. As a Stephen Ministry congregation, we equip and empower lay caregivers to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.
The presence of the Stephen Ministry at Christ Church multiplies blessings throughout the church and community. These include:
- The congregation receives a practical and powerful way to respond to Christ's commandment, "Love one another as I have loved you" (John 15:12).
- The deacon-in-charge has a team of gifted, trained and committed lay caregiveers ready to minister to hurting people.
- Members of the laity nurture and use their gifts in meaningful ministry, growing spiritually as they serve others.
- Most importantly, those who are hurting have a compassionate companion, a caring Christian friend who provides emotional and spiritual support.
If you feel that you have a need to receive compassionate care from a member of the Stephen Ministry team, please email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Be assured that all requests for care are held in the strictest confidence.
