How Training Works

Stephen Ministers are trained by our congregation’s Stephen Leaders (Judy Austin, Allen Hogge, Becky McKinley and Pastor Pam) using resources from Stephen Ministries St. Louis. The training you receive equips you to provide high-quality, Christ centered care to people who are hurting.
