What is Stephen Ministry?

"Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ." (Galatians 6:2, NRSV).

Stephen Ministry is the one-to-one lay caring ministry that takes place in congregations that use the Stephen Series system.
Stephen Ministry congregations equip and empower lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.

The Blessings of Stephen Ministry...

​​Stephen Ministry multiplies blessings throughout the church and community.
Congregations receive a practical and powerful way to respond to Christ’s commandment:

“Love one another as I have loved you” (John 15:12 RSV).

Pastors - have a team of gifted, trained, and committed lay caregivers ready to minister to hurting people (information for pastors).

Laypeople - nurture and use their gifts in meaningful ministry, growing spiritually as they serve others.

People - who are hurting have a compassionate companion—a caring Christian friend who provides emotional and spiritual support.
