One-to-One Care: Stephen Ministry
Stephen Ministry provides confidential, one-on-one Christian care to individuals in the Bethany community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives. Both men and women will find support and encouragement through a relationship with a Stephen Minister.
Stephen Ministers are available to meet with those in our church community who are experiencing divorce, grief, unemployment, loneliness, hospitalization, terminal illness, or any number of other life challenges. You will usually meet with your Stephen Minister for an hour a week for as long as you are benefiting from the relationship. Trust is essential to a caring relationship, and Stephen Ministers are people you can trust. Confidentiality is one of the most important principles of Stephen Ministry.
Once a year, men and women interested in becoming Stephen Ministers are invited to apply and be trained to come alongside others to care in a range of need areas in people’s lives. To become a Stephen Minister, submit your completed application the church office.
