Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry logoStephen Ministry is the one-to-one lay caring ministry that takes place in congregations that use the Stephen Series system.

Stephen Ministry congregations equip and empower lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.

First Pres is part of a coalition of churches whose Stephen Ministers meet twice a month for education and training. We have four active Stephen Ministers at the present time: Ann Argall, Nancy Blashka, Roberta Brand, and Jo Leicht. Nancy is a Stephen Minister Leader.

First Pres has had Stephen Ministry in our church since 1998. A Stephen Minister is a lay person who has received 50 hours of training in providing emotional and spiritual care.
