Stephen Ministry

Carrying the burdens of others through presence, listening, and prayer.

Stephen Ministry seeks to pursue God’s purposes in the world by carrying the burdens of others through presence, listening and prayer.


If you are experiencing a season of grief, you don't have to suffer alone. A Stephen Minister can walk alongside you, confidentially, until you get to higher ground. For more information, contact one of our referrals coordinators Bill VanAlstine or Janet VanBuskirk.
