When people are in a crisis, they find themselves facing a fork in the road. One path leads to greater brokenness, while the other leads toward greater wholeness. Our pastors will always be on the front lines of care, but often there are more needs for care than our pastors can meet on their own - especially when those needs are long-term.

This is where Stephen Ministers come in - they are trained members of our faith family who act in support of our Pastoral Care Team to deepen, expand, and extend the caring capacity of our church. Stephen Ministers walk with the person down the path to greater wholeness, providing regular emotional and spiritual care and support for as long as the person needs it.
