Stephen Ministry God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we our selves have received from God. (2 Corinthians 1:4) Stephen Ministry is grounded in Jesus’ command to love one another. Those who are hurting receive the love and care they need through one-on-one caring relationships.
A person-either you, a relative, or a friend-is hurting and in need of Christian care. The Stephen Ministry Referral Coordinator learns about this need for care-from a pastor, professional church worker, the person, or a friend-always with the person’s permission. The Referral Coordinator contacts the person to explain Stephen Ministry. Once the person gives permission, the Referral Coordinator prays for the appropriate Stephen Minister assignment. The Stephen Minister provides distinctively Christian care for the person in strict confidentiality on a weekly basis.
Consider allowing a Stephen Minister to walk with you on your journey to wholeness. If you would like to have a Stephen Minister or make a referral, contact Pastor Arnie Frank at 602.955.4830, x1011.
