Stephen Ministry

Stephen 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, chronic or terminal illness, relocation, or separations due to military deployment.


Stephen Ministers come from all walks of live. Their commonality? A passion for bringing Christ’s love and care to people during time of need. Since 1975, more than 600,000 people from more than 12,000 congregations and other organizations have been trained as Stephen Ministers.


So . . .

Do you recognize pain and suffering in others?
Are you able to listen to the heart-felt words of others?
Are you willing to help others but may not always know how?


If you can answer “Yes” to any of these questions, then God has given you talents to become a Stephen Minister in Evergreen’s newly-formed Stephen Ministry—a complete system for training and organizing laypeople to provide one-to-one Christian care to hurting people in and around our congregation.
If the Holy Spirit has been knocking on your door, please open it and let God in to help you help others.
