Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2, NRSV).
Stephen Ministry is the one-to-one lay-person caring ministry that takes place in congregations that use the Stephen Series system.
Stephen Ministry congregations equip and empower lay-person caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.
The best way to understand how Stephen Ministry works is to learn about three groups of people involved in this ministry: Stephen Leaders, Stephen Ministers, and care receivers.
The PBS Religion & Ethics news show aired an informative video that describes how Stephen Ministry is changing lives in thousands of congregations.
