We all experience challenges in life, times when we could benefit from the support of a caring Christian friend. Stephen Ministers are gifted, called, and committed individuals who come alongside others in and outside our congregation. They serve as an extension of pastoral care, providing confidential peer-to-peer support at no cost. Our Stephen Ministers are equipped through a training course that is Christ-centered, Spirit-guided, and biblically based.
If you or someone you know might benefit from receiving care from a Stephen Minister, please contact Courtney Grager, Director of Stephen Ministry, at (510) 848-6252 ext. 274 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
