Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry is a ministry of Christian Care Giving where trained lay people come alongside people who are experiencing a crisis in their lives by lending a listening ear, offering encouragement, prayer and support. Loving care is extended until the person is able to experience the healing of Christ in his or her life. If you would like to have a Stephen Minister to walk beside you as you go through a difficult time, contact the Caring Ministries Office via e-mail or call our office at (815) 877-7046.
