Who needs a Stephen Minister?
Stephen Ministers are there for those dealing with difficult circumstances in their lives. Whether it’s death of a loved one, long term illness, loss of job or relationship, financial stresses, divorce, faith issues, loneliness, pregnancy/adoption, etc. This Ministry is a group of trained lay people committed to Confidentiality, Compassion and Caring people back toward healing. Stephen Ministers are NOT trained counselors and are not expected to play that role. Their only purpose is to give people who are experiencing challenges, hurts or crises. They are a friend who will not give advice, will not judge, but will be a sounding board when they just need to talk. If you’d like to learn more please contact the church office (317) 831-3376 for more information.
