Stephen Ministry

Reaching and transforming hurting people through Jesus Christ

The Stephen Series "Stephen Ministry," is a complete system for training and organizing laypeople to provide one-to-one Christian care to hurting people in and around your congregation. Classes are offered under the leadership of our Congregational Care Minister, Rev. Edd Matako.

Stephen Ministers care for people inside and outside the congregation, including those experiencing grief, divorce, job loss, terminal illness, loneliness, spiritual crisis, hospitalization, relocation, and other life difficulties. Men are matched with men, women with women. Caring relationships last for as long as the person needs this level of care.

If you are interested in information about the class series, or are in need of a Stephen Minister yourself, please call the church office at 330-832-1234.
