Stephen Ministry

Provides high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care and support to people experiencing life difficulties.

stephen_ministryAre you in need of a caring, Christian friend who will listen, empathize, encourage, pray, provide confidential care and patiently support you as you work through a crisis or difficult time?

Everyone goes through difficult times. Having someone to care, to listen, to share God’s love with you can help you get through the confusion, stress, or loneliness you may be experiencing. God does not intend for you to struggle alone.

Stephen Ministers are ready to provide the emotional and spiritual care we need when we are faced with a crisis or difficulty, such as loss of a loved one, illness or hospitalization, divorce or separation, loneliness or discouragement, spiritual crisis, unemployment or job crisis, financial difficulties and more.

Stephen Ministry is a worldwide, interdenominational ministry sponsored by Stephen Series in St. Louis, Missouri. Our church, along with other churches in the Apex/Cary and Triangle areas, participates in this ministry. It is confidential, where the identity of those receiving care and what takes place in each caring relationship remains private. Stephen Ministers can support someone in a caring relationship anywhere from six months to over two years. Given the length of each caring relationship, our team and the teams from other area churches work together to provide available Stephen Ministers to those in need.

Could you benefit from the confidential, one-to-one care and support of a Stephen Minister? Do you know someone else — perhaps a friend, neighbor, coworker, or relative — who could benefit from Stephen Ministry? Are you interested in becoming a Stephen Minister?
