Stephen Ministry at St Francis of Assisi, Willow Park
"For nothing is impossible
with God" Luke 1:37
Stephen Ministry is a caring ministry of lay
caregivers, commissioned by the Rector that helps people during difficult times or crises to experience
Christ's healing love and compassion through one-on-one quality care. Stephen Ministers are trained and
supervised by Stephen Ministry Leaders so they may provide care through listening, praying, support and
encouraging. They receive at least 50 hours of training initially as well as continuing education and
supervision during regular meetings thereafter.
As we go through life, we experience many difficult and life-changing events that we don't want to handle
alone, such as
New to the Area/Moving
A Stephen Minister is a caring Christian friend who walks along side a hurting person during those times of
crisis or change who will listen without judgment, in confidence as long as necessary.
