Caring for people through people.
Sometimes Stephen Ministers are known as the "after people." They are there after the last card is recieved, after the last visitor has left, after everyone else has moved on.
Stephen Ministers provide confidential one-to-one Christian care to people experiencing a crisis or going through a difficult time. Stephen Ministers usually meet weekly or bi-monthly with their care receiver for around an hour to listen, care, encourage, pray, and provide emotional and spiritual support for the person.
These people have been through 50 hours of specialized training in Christian caregiving. Caring relationships last for as long as the person’s need persists.
