Stephen Ministry is the one-to-one lay caring ministry that takes place in congregations that use the Stephen Series system. Stephen Ministry congregations equip and empower lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting. At St Mark, Stephen, ministers meet monthly for training and planning. If you are interested in being a part of Stephen's ministry, you can email or go to their website to learn more.
A Stephen Minister comes alongside a hurting person and meets with that person on a weekly basis to listen, care, encourage, pray, and provide emotional and spiritual support. Men are paired with men; women with women. Click on the picture to the left to see a video about how Stephen Ministry changes lives.
