Stephen Ministry is one-to-one ministry offered by trained, caring lay people who have responded to Christ's call to "carry each other's burdens" (Galatians 6:2). Through confidential relationships grounded in Jesus' command to love one another, those who are hurting receive the love and care they need to support them.
