Stephen Ministry


What is Stephen Ministry?

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. This is a confidential ministry. The identity of those receiving care and what takes place in each caring relationship remain private.

Stephen Ministers Care

We all experience challenges in life--times when we could benefit from the support of a caring Christian friend. Stephen Ministers are ready to provide the emotional and spiritual care we need when faced with a crisis or difficulty.

Stephen Ministry Connections

We have an additional 5 Stephen Ministers that have recently completed their 50 hours of training and are currently getting connected with those in need. This brings SMCC's total number of Stephen Ministers to 15.

If you, or someone you know, has needs and would like to meet with a Stephen Minister, call the church office at 626.355.3566 x321, and we will get you connected with at Stephen Leader who can help.
