What is Stephen Ministry?
Stephen Ministers are laypeople—Christian men and women—trained to provide one-to-one care to people experiencing a difficult time in life, such as grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, relocation, or separation due to military deployment.
Stephen Ministers come from all walks of life. Their commonality? A passion for bringing Christ’s love and care to people during a time of need.
Since 1975, more than 600,000 people from more than 12,000 congregations and other organizations have been trained as Stephen Ministers.
At Highpoint, we are beginning our next training class on Tuesday, August 30th. To get more information, or to sign up for the class- just visit our lobby table between Sunday services.
Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2, NRSV).
