SPC has teamed up with Trinity UMC and St. Philip’s Episcopal Church to hold our next training class beginning January 20 and running through May 11.
Serving as a Stephen Minister is an opportunity to touch people’s lives in powerful ways through “God’s Love in Action.”
A Stephen Minister walks alongside a hurting person to provide one-to-one, emotional and spiritual care—listening, empathizing, encouraging, helping process feelings, and connecting the person with God’s love. If you are interested in becoming a Stephen Minister or need refresher training from having served in the past, pray about the opportunity to serve, seek the Holy Spirit’s guidance and consider how you might be called to be “God’s Love in Action.” Stephen Ministers’ caregiving involves skills that are well within the ability of laypeople to learn and use. We especially encourage our SPC men to consider this calling, a one–on–one male to male, woman to woman caregiving ministry, so we can have it available for all who could benefit from having a Stephen Minister.
