Stephen Ministry is a program of our congregation that equips lay members to provide distinctly Christian care to those experiencing all kinds of difficulties in life. It is grounded in Jesus’ command to love one another and based on the belief that caring for one another is an intended way of life for followers of Jesus Christ.
Stephen Ministers are not counselors or therapists, but they do provide one-to-one support for others in times of need. They receive 50 hours of intensive coursework in how to provide distinctively Christian care.
A new training program at FUMC will begin in Fall 2013. Learn more about Stephen Ministry and its training program by attending an information meeting on Sunday, June 30 at 11:45 in Room 110.
