St. Andrew’s Stephen Ministry

We’re here to listen and care.

What is Stephen Ministry?

Stephen Ministry of St. Andrew’s helps our community provide care for individuals going through a time of transition or difficulty.  Stephen Ministry trains people from our congregation to give one-to-one care for others who might need a caring Christian presence to walk alongside them during a challenging time.  “We area the care givers; Christ is the cure giver.”

What is a Stephen Minister?

Stephen Ministers are Lay Christian Caregivers who receive 50 hours of initial training which is supplemented with continuing education and guidance from their Stephen Leaders and guest speakers.  A Stephen Minister is a caring, listening ear who is also confidential, trustworthy, skilled and compassionate.

There are many different reasons why you might need someone to walk with you during a difficult time:

~Is life more than you can handle right now?

~Is your health, attitude or relationship suffering?

~Would you like to have someone in your life who could support you during this time?

Someone is waiting to assist you.
