Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministers bring God's healing love to hurting people.

The Stephen Ministry at First Baptist meets the needs of people by equipping lay leaders to provide effective caring ministry to help those facing hospitalization, illness, death of a loved one, job crisis, disabilities, divorce, spiritual crises, the challenges of aging, and many other situations of need.

A Stephen Minister is...

  • A caring, Christian friend who listens, cares, prays, supports, and encourages in a confidential relationship.
  • Someone who will be there for his or her care receiver, meeting faithfully for about an hour each week, for as long as there is a need.
