Do you have a gift for compassion and caring? Do you feel called to help make people's lives better? Do you want to grow your own faith while walking with others through life's journey? If so, please consider becoming a Stephen Minister.
Stephen Ministers are laypeople trained to provide one-to-one care to people experiencing a difficult time in life, such as grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, relocation, or separation due to military deployment.
A Stephen Minister usually provides care to one person at a time, meeting with that person once a week for about an hour. Twice a month, Stephen Ministers gather with their Stephen Leaders for supervision and continuing education.
Stephen Ministers come from all walks of life. Their commonality? A passion for bringing Christ’s love and care to people during a time of need. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a Stephen Minister, please email Pastor Melissa or one of First Church's Stephen Ministers or Stephen Leaders. Training for the next class of Stephen Ministers begins September 11.
