A 12-step program - biblical and balanced that helps us overcome our hurts, habits, and hang-ups.


Stephen Ministry is caring ministry which enables people who are hurting to meet with a Stephen Minister who will listen without judging and will support without lecturing. Stephen Ministry equips a team of lay caregivers with training, resources and support to provide on-going care for people going through crisis. Stephen Ministers provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care and support for people struggling with divorce, severe illness, job loss, loneliness, disability, depression, relocation and other life difficulties.

Stephen Ministry is not a cure-all; the care-giving and receiving relationship that it fosters, however, can help you persevere in the midst of a struggle. Stephen Ministry relationships are strictly confidential: only the care-giver, care-recipient, and the Stephen Ministry coordinator know of the relationship’s existence.
