Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry is a confidential lay ministry based on distinctively Christian caring. Trained and supervised laypersons, called Stephen Ministers, provide one to one Christian care to individuals facing life challenges or difficulties. Stephen Ministry began in 1996 at EUMC and we are proud to be one of more than 7,000 Stephen Ministry congregations from more than 93 denominations worldwide. Want more information?

If you or someone you know could benefit from the care of a Stephen Minister, you can talk to one of our pastors, Stephen Leaders or Stephen Ministers who would be happy to help you through the process. (If you want to talk about Stephen Ministry for someone else, make sure you get his or her permission first.) Be assured that confidentiality is a cornerstone of Stephen Ministry because it is absolutely essential for building safe, healing, caring relationships.
