STEPHEN MINISTRY

Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ

Galatians 6:2

A CARING MINISTRY

Stephen Ministry is the one-to-one lay caring ministry. St. Paul's Lutheran, Pastor Ratcliffe and our Stephen Leaders equip and empower lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.

THE BLESSINGS OF STEPHEN MINISTRY

“Love one another as I have loved you” (John 15:12 RSV).​

Stephen Ministry multiplies blessings throughout the church and community.

  • Congregations receive a practical and powerful way to respond to Christ’s commandment to love one another.

  • Pastors have a team of gifted, trained, and committed lay caregivers ready to minister to hurting people.

  • Laypeople nurture and use their gifts in meaningful ministry, growing spiritually as they serve others.

  • People who are hurting have a caring Christian friend who provides emotional and spiritual support.

GOD'S LOVE IN ACTION

If you are interested in learning more about becoming a Stephen Minister or are in need of care from a Stephen Minister, please call the church office.
