What Is a Stephen Minister?
A person trained to provide one-to-one, Christ-centered care to hurting people
Watch a short video in which Stephen Ministers from McLean Bible Church describe how their congregation’s Stephen Ministry brings hope and healing to hurting people.
Facing a challenging time in your life?
Our Stephen Ministers are trained and ready to provide confidential, one-on-one care to people facing life challenges or who are going through a difficult time and could benefit from the care of a supportive Christian friend. Specially trained in active listening, providing Christian care, and ministering to people who are suffering, Stephen ministers provide a safe, non-judgmental place to share your feelings and concerns.
Our Stephen Ministry provides care for people who are facing challenges and changes such as loss of a loved one, hospitalization, divorce, unemployment, spiritual crisis, life transitions, loneliness, and more.
There is no need to struggle alone! Our Stephen Ministers are here to walk with you through the valleys of life and guide you through these journeys.
If you are interested in receiving care from a Stephen Minister or if you are interested in serving as a Stephen Minister, contact Randy Kirby, Associate Pastor at 704-636-1321. He will gladly answer any of your questions and connect you with the Stephen Ministry program.
