Stephen Ministry

What is a STEPHEN MINISTER?   What isn't a STEPHEN MINISTER?

A Stephen Minister IS:
A caring Christian who has been trained to listen
Someone to walk WITH you during a tough time
Someone to focus only on YOU and your thoughts and feelings
A trustworthy confidant who will keep everything you say and who you are confidential
Someone who will meet with you faithfully for as long as you need the support
 

                                   A Stephen Minister IS NOT:
                                  A counselor or therapist
                                  The problem solver
                                  A casual friend
