StephenMinistryLogo
The Stephen Ministry logo tells the story of a care receiver’s journey from brokenness to wholeness through the transforming power of the cross of Jesus.
A Stephen Minister is:
  • A child of God who walks beside a person who is hurting
  • A caring, Christian travel companion who takes time to listen to a care receiver’s concerns and maintains confidentiality
  • A lay person who has received extensive training in how to provide distinctively Christian care.

 

Stephen Ministry is grounded in Jesus’ command to love one another.  Through one-to-one caring relationships, those who are hurting receive the love and care they need to support them.
 
 

If you feel you need a Christian to listen and support you

…to walk beside you during a crisis…or know someone who does, contact a Stephen Ministry Referrals Coordinator, Jane Drake at 702-448-3152, or Marj Scull at 702-255-3214.
