Stephen Ministry provides confidential, one-on-one care to individuals who are experiencing a tough season in their lives. Trained care-givers are available to come alongside both men and women to listen, encourage, support and pray for them as they seek healing and strength while facing particular crises, such as the loss of a loved one, convalescence, separation or divorce, loneliness or discouragement, spiritual concerns, unemployment, terminal or chronic illness, birth or adoption, miscarriage or infertility, relocation, recovery, and life transition.
Each year in the month of January, Bethany members and regular attenders are invited to apply to become Stephen Ministers. Selected applicants then embark upon a four month journey of training that equips them to minister Christian care to others who come to us seeking someone who will walk with them through their season of difficulty.
To express interest in exploring the possibility of serving as a Stephen Minister or to communicate a desire to receive the care of a Stephen Minister in your life, please contact Pastor Phil Maulding.
