Stephen Ministry

The Stephen Ministry is a confidential, lay-caring ministry grounded in Jesus’ command to love one another. Those who are hurting receive love and support through one-to-one caring relationships. The ministry is named after Stephen, one of the first deacons in the early Christian church, commissioned by the apostles to care for the needs of people in the Christian community.  To learn more, visit the Stephen Ministry website.

  • Is life more than you can handle alone right now?
  • Is your health, your attitude, or your relationships suffering?
  • Are you adjusting to a new job, change in marital status, a serious illness, the death of a loved one, or a recent move?
  • Would you like to have someone in your life that really cares? .

Everyone goes through difficult times. Having someone to care, to listen, and to share God’s love can help you get through the confusion, stress, or loneliness that you may be experiencing. Stephen Ministers are Caregivers… God is the CUREGIVER.

Our Stephen Leaders and Referral Coordinators are John Dorsey and Jane Owen. Please call the church office at 785.233.9601 to connect with our Stephen Leaders.
