If you have been considering becoming a Stephen Minister, God is holding a spot for you! Realizing we must proceed in “God’s Time”, we have postponed our next Training Class until early next year.
Stephen Ministers commit to serve faithfully for a period of two years. This includes:
- the initial 50 hours of training;
- regular visits to your care receiver (usually weekly); and
- twice-monthly Small Group Peer Supervision meetings.
Our Stephen Ministry Training Class meets from 6:30-9pm on Mondays and from 8:30am-noon on one Saturday. You can see videos about the program and the difference it has made in people's lives at: www.stephenministries.org.
For more information, contact: Bill Pelham - Training Coordinator at (303) 466-5996 - firstname.lastname@example.org or Pastor Thomas Cross - (720) 880-5221 at email@example.com
We are praying that God will lead us to find the right people for this ministry. God is waiting to work through YOU to make a difference in hurting people’s lives.
Stephen Ministers work alongside our pastors to care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support to people who are going through a difficult time, such as divorce, grief, hospitalization, unemployment, terminal illness, relocation, chronic illness, or loneliness. Trainees will receive 50 hours of specialized training in Christian caregiving and join a team of 22 active Stephen Ministers serving our community to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to people experiencing a crisis. Stephen Ministers meet weekly with their care receiver for around an hour to listen, care, encourage, pray, and provide emotional and spiritual support for the person. Caring relationships last for as long as the person’s need persists.
