Stephen Ministries

Stephen Ministry expands the care St. Mark can offer by equipping and organizing lay members to provide Christian care. This gives us a larger pool of people with the gifts, skills and calling to bring Christ’s love and care to those who most need it.
Stephen Ministry provides one-to-one confidential care to anyone who wishes to receive it and offers training and on-going support to those who desire to serve as Christian caregiver. While the majority of this Christian caregiving is from church member to church member, they are available to provide support to anyone in the community.
Some of those whom Stephen Ministries walk beside are: those who are hospitalized, terminally ill, bereaved, in a job crisis, home-bound, lonely, going through divorce, new church members, new mothers, persons who are looking for a caring, Christian friend.
Stephen Ministry also has 2 on-going programs open to the public:
