Our Stephen Ministry Welcomes New Leaders and Ministers

For over twenty years our congregation has trained Stephen Ministers with the skills necessary for caring ministry in our church and community. This fall, six new Stephen Ministers will begin a seven month training course in October. The five trainees are Mollie Birch, Susie Cummins, Cindy Edwards, Barbara Lasley, and Barbara Vaught. These committed and caring people will join our presently serving Stephen Ministers and Leaders in offering one-on-one caring Christian friendship and concerned listening to people when they need it most.

Our Stephen Ministry team also joyfully welcomes two new Stephen Leaders: Kay Combs and Jana Villemez. Both Kay and Jana have served as Stephen Ministers. They attended a week-long training to prepare them for their role as leaders in this significant ministry. Kay and Jana join our other Stephen Leaders, Karen Akin, Cathy Crass, Jo Ann McQuade, Laurie Stueart and Rita Wooley.
