A Stephen Minister begins a caring relationship when he or she is matched with a person experiencing a life crisis. The Stephen Minister then meets with that person on a weekly basis to listen, care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support. The caring relationship lasts as long as the person is in need of care and there are no fees involved.

Stephen Ministers are —Christian men and women—trained to provide one-to-one care to people experiencing a difficult time in life. 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.
Stephen Leaders are leaders who are equipped to direct Stephen Ministry in their congregation. Stephen Leaders have gifts and skills in areas such as leadership, teaching, and organizing people, along with a heart for caring ministry.
A Stephen Minister comes alongside a hurting person and meets with that person to listen, care, encourage, pray, and provide emotional and spiritual support. Men are paired with men; women with women. Over the years, many people have benefited from the one-to-one, Christ-centered care of a Stephen Minister. This care is entirely confidential—no one knows the identity of a care receiver except for his or her Stephen Minister and the Stephen Leader who paired the two together.
