Stephen Ministry • Caring That Changes Lives
Stephen Series is a complete system for training and organizing laypeople to provide one-to-one Christian care to hurting people in and around your congregation. We have 12 skilled, caring individuals available to walk with you through a difficult time.
If you, or someone you know, is going through any life issues and would benefit from a confidential, one-to-one relationship, please contact Jetty Zarfos, St. John's Referral Coordinator. It will be Jetty's job to gift you, or someone you may know, with the best Christian Care you can find. If you refer someone, please ask their permission, as all relationships are confidential.
Intro to Stephen Ministry
The training is state of the art and provides laypeople with tools and confidence to provide confidential, high-quality care to people facing life challenges. Participates will complete 50 hours of training and become St. John's first Stephen Ministers.

Stephen Ministry Logo
The Stephen Ministry logo with the broken person behind the cross and the whole person in front of the cross symbolizes that we are all broken people and that it is only through the cross of Jesus that we are made whole.
Stephen Ministers will help guide you in your journey from brokenness to wholeness.
