Stephen Ministry
Did you know there is a difference between a Stephen Minister and a counselor? A counselor sets goals for the client, encourages behavioral changes and measures progress. In contrast, the care receiver in Stephen Ministry drives the process, and the Stephen Minister is there for confidential support. You can talk to a Stephen Minister today.
