STEPHEN MINISTRY

Stephen ministry is a nondenominational confidential ministry of trained Christian care givers. Their role is to LISTEN and CARE- not counsel of advise. Stephen Ministers are assigned only to  people who agree to receive the care of a Stephen Minister.  They minister to people in specific situations such as divorce, terminal illness, grief, aging, loneliness, single parenting, etc. Stephen Ministers minister to only one care receiver at a time and usually meets with that person for one hour per week.  They are trained to recognize when a care receiver’s needs go beyond the care of a Stephen Minister and can refer the Care Receiver for additional care. People interested in these services need not be a member of a church.

For more information on becoming a Stephen Minister or requesting services from a Stephen Minister please contact Gwen Scarth,  at gwenyth.allen@gmail.com or at 706-258-8757 or John VanNamen at vannamenjohn@ gmail.com or at 219-670-3057.
