Stephen Ministry

The above Stephen Ministry logo, with the broken person behind the cross and the whole person in front of the cross, symbolizes that we are all broken people and that it is only through the cross of Jesus that we are made whole.

Stephen Ministers will help guide you in your journey from brokenness to wholeness.

Do you know someone … perhaps a friend, neighbor, co-worker, colleague, or relative, who could benefit from this type of care?

Then contact … one of our Stephen Leaders listed above.  They can tell you more about our Stephen Ministry and how you—or your friend— can be matched with a Stephen Minister.
