The Stephen Ministry program offers those in the midst of difficulties a way to find a Christian friend to help them through the tough times. All Saints has more than 20 trained Stephen Ministers who can lend support and comfort.
Not a counseling or therapy program, Stephen Ministry matches up ordinary Christians with other ordinary Christians facing the types of life challenges we all face. Whether grieving a specific loss (of a loved one, a job, a home, good health) or simply feeling lonely, discouraged or displaced, anyone can find a sympathetic ear and a new friendship through Stephen Ministry.
The highly confidential program is open to anyone who feels the need for the support and care of a friend with an always-open shoulder and an ear for listening. Stephen Ministers receive 50 hours of training in how to provide Christian care and support to those who are hurting.
