Become a Stephen Minister
Preparation to become a Stephen Minister begins with training in Christian caring skills led by Pastor Barry and our Stephen Leader team. The training will include a variety of topics such as listening, Christian assertiveness, maintaining boundaries in care-giving and grief. The instruction is distinctively Christian and focuses on God as the one who cures as we care. When Stephen Ministers have completed their training they will be commissioned as “Stephen Ministers” and ready to begin their ministry.
If you feel Jesus nudging you to serve as a Stephen Minister and would like additional information on this compassionate ministry we encourage you to contact our team at firstname.lastname@example.org
or call the church office at 949.362.0079. We have just completed our first 50 hours of training and have trained 42 people to become Stephen Ministers. Our next training will be in September 2012.
