Stephen Ministry

Christ caring for people through people

What is Stephen Ministry?

It is a one-to-one lay, caring ministry that helps people get through difficult times or crises.  We pray over assignments and consider life experiences. There is NO charge.  Stephen Ministers are not counselors but people caring confidentially in the name of Jesus.  Here at Shalimar, we have had trained Stephen Ministers, helping our congregation for 25 years.
