Stephen Ministry provides one-to-one care through trained laypersons to individuals struggling with major and minor life crises. Since it began in 1975, some 13,000 congregations representing more than 170 Christian denominations in 31 countries have had Stephen Ministries.
In Stephen Ministry congregations such as Peace Lutheran Church, lay caregivers called Stephen Ministers provide one-to-one Christian care to the bereaved, hospitalized, terminally ill, separated, divorced, unemployed, relocated, and others facing a crisis or life challenge. Stephen Ministers at Peace has completed 50 hours of training and attend continuing education to help our congregation provide caring ministry for members and others in times of need.
