What Is Stephen Ministry?

Check out the Stephen Ministry by the Numbers booklet for a brief overview of Stephen Ministry.
 
Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2, NRSV).
 
Stephen 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.
