Stephen Ministry

Are you feeling called to use your gifts of listening, patience, and caring to help others?

How do you become a Stephen Minister?

Are you feeling led by God to use your gifts of listening, patience, and caring to help others?  Good news! The next Stephen Minister training class begins in January 2022. The recruitment process begins in September with applications due by October 17.

Stephen Ministers are extensively trained and practiced in handling all situations that they may face when providing care. The training consists of 50 hours of classroom training over a 4-month period. After completion of training and commissioning, Stephen Ministers can expect to spend approximately an hour a week with their assigned care receiver. In addition, twice a month on Sunday, the team meets for continuing education and supervision to ensure that the best possible care is being provided. Prior to commissioning, trainees must be members of LCPC and are asked to commit to serving for two years.
