Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry is a confidential ministry in which the identity of those receiving care and everything discussed remains private.  Stephen Ministry equips lay people to provide weekly one-on-one Christian care (emotional and spiritual) to people in the congregation and community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives, be it the loss of a loved one, hospitalization, spiritual crisis, divorce, job loss, or loneliness, to name but a few. If you or someone you know could use a Stephen Minister, please call our Stephen Leaders,  Dian Ward (702) 750-0146,  Melody Edwards (702) 683-5189 or Pat Malfara  (702)242-8442. God comforts us in our affliction so that we may comfort others as we were comforted by God .“                       2nd Corinthians 1-4
