There are times when every one of us experiences difficulties–
|• loss of a loved one||• job loss||• imprisonment|
|• hospitalization||• disability||• infertility|
|• spiritual crisis||• loneliness||• discouragement|
|• divorce||• cancer||• many other challenges|
God never intended for us to go through these experiences alone. That's why God has brought us together as a congregation–and why we have Stephen Ministry.
Stephen Ministers are members of our congregation who have received 50 hours of training to minister to people experiencing a crisis or going though a difficult time in life.
Every week, a Stephen Minister will meet with you–privately and confidentially–to listen, care, encourage, support, and reflect Christ's presence in your life.
A Care Receiver's Story
If you would like to learn more about Stephen Ministry for yourself or someone else (inside or outside our congregation), contact Pastor Pam Hrncir.
Stephen Ministry offers a proven and effective way to organize, equip, and supervise a team of congregation members—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, one-to-one, Christ-centered care to people in the congregation and the community experiencing life difficulties.
Stephen Ministers are congregation members trained by their Stephen Leaders to offer care to people who are hurting. A Stephen Minister typically has one care receiver at a time and meets with that person once a week for about an hour.
Would you like to be part of a ministry that gives people care and support when they need it most–while making a difference in your own life? The Stephen Ministry may be a great fit for you! Contact Pastor Pam Hrncir to learn more about the ministry, WPC's timeline, and the training process.
