What is Stephen Ministry?
Stephen Ministry is the one-to-one lay caring ministry based on the Stephen Series system. Stephen Ministry was founded in 1975, and since then one-and-a-half-million people have had a Stephen Minister to walk with them and provide confidential Christian care during tough times.
