Stephen Ministry Details

What is Stephen Ministry?
Stephen Ministry is one-on-one Christian Care given to individuals facing a life crisis or challenge. Stephen Ministry congregations equip and empower lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.

The mission of the Stephen Ministries organization is summed up in St. Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.

“To equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until all of us come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the full stature of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12–13).
