Stephen Ministry

PastorOur church participates in an international program which equips laypeople (Stephen Ministers) with skills needed to support church and community members. Since 2006 our church has been registered with Stephen Ministry in St. Louis Missouri and has provided one-on-one Christ-centered care to adults going through personal difficulties such as divorce, illness, diagnosis, job change, relationship issues, and hospitalization. Our Stephen Ministers are trained members of our congregation who offer Christian care by way of conversation, empathy and shared faith to help bring peace and wholeness.

The Stephen Ministry Leaders are Darlene Purcell, Jean Thomas, Fred and Ginger Butler and Pastor Mueller.
