“Christ Caring for People Through People”

Stephen Ministers at White Chapel United Methodist Church are part of a larger organization of trained lay people who have a heart for caring for the needs of their church members and neighbors.  Through a one on one relationship, an assigned Stephen Minister meets with a person who has a need for someone who can listen and provide caring support during a difficult period or crisis in ones life.  Sometimes this is for a short period of time and for others, it can be a longer term relationship.  We realize that grief and loss comes in many different ways to people and Stephen Ministers have the compassion, love and spiritual gifts to share during this difficult journey.

Stephen Ministry is a Christian service with a strong focus on God’s love and spiritual encouragement.  Female Stephen Ministers are always paired with female care receivers and likewise male Stephen Ministers with male care receivers.  Each care receiver can be assured of total confidentiality in the process.  Some of the needs that Stephen Ministers seek to serve but are not limited to……

·      Hospitalized persons

·      Aging and elderly

·      Terminally ill

·      Those with disabilities and their families

·      Those moving into or out of our community

·      Those needing support of a Christian friend

·      Those facing transitions

·      Those separated or divorced

·      Home bound persons

·      Household experiencing birth, adoption, foster care

·      Those with job crises

·      Loss of a child or loved one
