Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministers are the ‘after people’.  They come alongside you to provide comfort and support in the midst of and long after life crises.  They companion people who are going through difficult life transitions/situations and need someone who will listen, care, and show empathy, for as long a time as is needed.

They are the hands and feet and face of Christ to those in need.
