Confidential Care Ministry

Our Confidential Care Ministers are lay persons who have received specialized training to provide one-to-one care to those who are experiencing all kinds of life needs and circumstances, both in our congregation and community.  

Our Confidential Care Ministers are committed Christian people who:

  • express God’s care through their lives to others

  • receive 50 hours of initial training in important caring ministry skills and concepts

  • are commissioned after completing their initial training

  • visit another person regularly and dependably and offer Christian support and care

  • participate in regular support and supervision under the guidance of trained Leaders

  • are committed to preserving the confidential nature of the caring relationship

  • serve for at least two years

  • receive continuing education and skill building throughout their years of service

 

Confidential Care Ministers are laypeople – Christian men and women – trained to provide one-to-one care to people experiencing a difficult time in life, such as grief, divorce, job loss, illness, etc.  

Stephen Ministry is a confidential ministry; those receiving care can be sure that their identity and what goes on in the caring relationship will remain private.
