Unity's Stephen Ministry

Unity Presbyterian Church recently enrolled in Stephen Ministry with the approval and full endorsement of the session. Unity’s Enrollment Certificate is displayed on the wall just outside the reception area of the Church Offices. During 2017, members of our congregation and our Senior Associate Pastor will attend a week long Leader’s Training Course in St. Louis, Missouri to become equipped as Stephen Leaders who will lead and direct Stephen Ministry at Unity. They will recruit, train, and supervise members of our congregation to become Stephen Ministers who will provide Christ-centered care to individuals who are hurting.

What is Stephen Ministry?

Stephen Ministry is a one-to- one Christian lay caregiving ministry. Stephen Ministers are caring people who receive 50 hours of training in the skills necessary for helping others. Stephen Ministers are matched with people who are hurting to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care. As hurting members of our congregation grow stronger through this caring ministry, the whole church is built up and made stronger. 

How Can I Find Out More?

Stay tuned for more information in May, after our Stephen Leaders return from training .
