We have trained over 20 new Stephen Ministers during the last three plus years! These skilled care-givers have walked with our members through health crisis, being out of work, surviving divorce, the loss of a loved one, depression and many other life challenges. But they commit to serve for only two years. This means that we need to continually be offering a new Stephen Ministry Class.
Our next three month long Stephen Ministry training is September, October and November. The weekly meetings cover confidentiality, the art of listening, the person of the caregiver, distinctively Christian caring, crisis response, grief, depression, skill-building role-plays and more. Our Stephen Ministers are not counselors but are well-prepared and prayerful persons, who walk alongside those in difficulty. If you would consider this dynamic God-blessed ministry contact pastor Doug Ganyo or Stephen Leader Mac Noden. May God bless our plans.
