Next Stephen Ministry Training begins Monday evenings, October 31, 2016 – December 19, 2016 and January 9, 2017 – April 9, 2017 at 6:30pm at Broomfield United Methodist Church. The 20 week course trains people in the basic skills necessary for helping others. Through lecture, discussion and experiential learning, training focuses on how to be an effective listener, how to minister to grieving people and more.

Stephen Ministers volunteer to work alongside our pastors to care for people who are going through a difficult time, such as divorce, grief, hospitalization, unemployment, terminal illness, relocation, chronic illness, or loneliness. Trainees receive 50 hours of specialized training in Christian caregiving and participate in a team of active Stephen Ministers to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to people experiencing a crisis. We meet weekly with our care receiver for around an hour to listen, care, encourage, pray, and provide emotional and spiritual support for them. Caring relationships last for as long as the person’s need persists.
If you have gifts for caring, encouragement, and listening, please begin to prayerfully consider whether you might want to be part of this exciting ministry. Sign up at the Small Group table in the Narthex, and be sure to indicate which group you are interested in. If you prefer a DAYTIME option, please let us know which days work best for you.
