Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry is First Presbyterian’s congregational one-to-one caregiving ministry. God works through Stephen Ministers to plant a seed of hope and healing in a person whose life seems barren and forlorn because of some crisis or tragedy.

What do Stephen Ministers do?

Stephen Ministers:

  • Listen
  • Pray
  • Explore feelings
  • Share Christ’s love

  • Attend to the care-giving process and leave the results to God

Stephen Ministers care for people who are:

  • Grieving
  • In a crisis
  • In need of long-term care
  • Dying
  • Hospitalized
  • Divorcing
  • Experiencing losses as they age
