The Stephen Ministry is a worldwide ministry in which trained and supervised lay persons, called Stephen Ministers, provide one-on-one Christian care to individuals facing life challenges or difficulties. Stephen Ministers attend 50 hours of initial training and then have continuing education and supervision throughout their time in this ministry. They are using Christian resources in caregiving. Stephen Ministers pray for and with their care receivers. This program is carried out in total confidentiality.
Pastors will always be the primary caregivers in a church, but there is no way pastors can meet all the needs for care. God has called all of us, not just pastors, to minister to one another.
