Stephen Ministry is a caring presence of Christ at St. Peter's
Stephen Ministry is the one-to-one lay caring ministry that takes place in congregations that use the Stephen Series system. Stephen Ministers are the "After People." They are ready to come alongside you--or your friends, neighbors, coworkers or relatives--and provide comfort and support for as long after as needed.
Saint Peter's first Stephen Ministry was created when our Stephen Leaders were trained in August 2013, a week-long intensive training in Pittsburgh PA. They were commissioned on September 15th at our Sunday service. In addition to our six newly commissioned leaders, we also have two previously-trained leaders in our parish who are part of our new ministry.
Could Stephen Ministry be Right for You?
Be part of our dedicated team of Stephen Ministers who are involved with helping others along the path of uncertainty.
The work is gratifying and enriching with a strong bond of trust and friendship developing as you journey through the training.
We would like to especially invite gentlemen to give serious consideration due to our need to have male Stephen Ministers to work with male care receivers.
