Stephen Ministry is a way for congregations to provide high-quality care and outreach to hurting people in the congregation and community.  Stephen Ministers are congregation members who go through 50 hours of Christian caregiving training.  Each Stephen Minister is then matched with a hurting person – men are paired with men, women with women – and meets with that person weekly to listen, care, pray, and encourage.

Caring relationships last for as long as the need persists.  Stephen Ministers care for those dealing with grief, divorce, job loss, hospitalization, financial struggles, loneliness, convalescence, terminal illness, and other life difficulties.

To make a referral for care, receive care for yourself, or find out more about the Stephen Ministry program, call the church office or one of the Stephen Leaders at Grace Community Church.

β€œAnd this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ.” Philippians 1:9-10
