Stephen Ministries

Stephen Ministry offers a proven and effective way to organize, equip, and supervise a team of congregation members—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, one-to-one, Christ-centered care to people in the congregation and the community experiencing life difficulties.

Pastors will always be on the front lines of care, especially during times of crisis. However, congregations have many more needs for ongoing, one-to-one care than pastors can effectively meet by themselves.

Stephen Ministry provides a biblical solution – equipping God’s people for ministry. Gifted lay people are trained to support and extend pastoral care. Stephen Ministers reach out with God’s love to people who are hurting – both congregation members and nonmembers alike. 

If you are interested in meeting with a Stephen Minister, call 402-556-6262. For more information on Stephen Ministry, click here.
