Stephen Ministries is a distinctively Christian program of training and organizing laypersons for one-on-one caring ministries to those experiencing difficult life challenges in our congregation and community. Stephen Ministries works with persons dealing with loneliness, terminal illness, spiritual crisis, aging, separation or divorce, loss of a loved one and other life transitions. If you have a concern and would like to request a Stephen Minister, contact Rev. Bill Roth at firstname.lastname@example.org or 704.295.4835.
