What is Stephen Ministry? 

BCUMC’s Stephen Ministry equips lay people to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to individuals in our congregation and community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives. Click here to access a video on Stephen Ministry.

• A child of God who walks beside a person who is hurting

• A Christian with gifts for caregiving who was carefully selected to serve in this role
• A layperson who has received 50 hours of training in providing emotional and spiritual care.
• A caring, Christian friend who listens, cares, prays, supports, and encourages
• Someone who will “be there” for his or her care receiver, meeting faithfully for about an hour each week, 

for as long as there’s a need
