Who Benefits From Stephen Ministry?
We all do! Pastors tell us that Stephen Ministry deepens, expands and extends the caregiving capacity of their congregations. As care receivers in our congregation and community grow stronger through this confidential, Christ-centered caring ministry, we all grow in faith and hope and love.
Care receivers may be individuals facing a variety of crises or life challenges – people who are experiencing grief, divorce, cancer, financial difficulties, relocation, a new baby, hospitalization, chronic illness, job loss, new job, empty nest, loneliness, a spiritual crisis, or other significant life experiences. They may just feel overwhelmed.
