Stephen Ministry

One-on-One Care for Hurting People

About Stephen Ministry

At First Nazarene, we do not want anyone to hurt alone. Stephen Ministry is a one-to-one, confidential ministry that provides Christian care to those who are experiencing loss/grief, loneliness, crisis, or challenging situations such as chronic illness, unemployment, divorce and countless others. Stephen Ministers are highly-trained lay people who meet with their care recipient once a week to listen, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support for as long as he or she needs.
