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 trained by their Stephen Leaders to offer care to people who are hurting. Typically a Stephen Minister meets with the care receiver once a week for about an hour. The caring relationship lasts for as long as the need persists.
Roser Church has long history with the Stephen Ministry, a national program of Christian support for people going through a difficult period in their lives. The ministry links people in need with volunteers trained to offer individualized caregiving support to people experiencing difficulties such as losing a loved one or coping with a chronic illness/disability.
