Stephen Ministry

     Our congregation's Stephen Ministry equips lay people to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to individuals in our congregation and community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives.
    
     A Stephen Minister is:
A child of God who walks beside a person who is hurting.  A congregation member with gifts for care giving, who was carefully selected to serve in this role.  A lay person who has received 50 hours of training in providing emotional and spiritual care.  A caring, Christian friend who listens, cares, prays, supports and encourages.  Someone who will "be there" for his or her care receiver, meeting faithfully for about an hour each week, for as long as there's a need.
    
     If you - or someone you know - could benefit from the care of a Stephen Minister call the church off at 626-3307 or e-mail Carol Richardson  crichardson@sttimothyumc.org
