To Love Is To Listen

Stephen Ministers offer caring Christian friendship and concerned listening to people when they need it most.  Stephen Ministry is lay caring ministry.  Stephen Ministers are not counselors or therapists; rather, they are caring Christian friends who can offer a listening ear to help others through the tough times of life.
