Bear one another’s burdens

and in this way

you will fulfill the law of Christ

Galatians 6:2, NRSV

Help and Restoration for the Hurting

Stephen Ministers are laypeople—Christian men and women—trained to provide one-to-one care to people experiencing a difficult time in life, such as grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, relocation, or separation due to military deployment.

Stephen Ministers come from all walks of life. Their commonality? A passion for bringing Christ’s love and care to people during a time of need.

Since 1975, more than 650,000 people from more than 12,000 congregations and other organizations have been trained as Stephen Ministers.

If you or someone you know would appreciate a Stephen Minister to meet with you weekly to listen, to care, to encourage, contact Pastor Ranae at 419.452.7212.
