Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministers are lay congregation members who provide Christ-centered care to someone who is experiencing a difficult time—such as grief, illness, job loss, or other life challenges. A Stephen Minister is assigned one care receiver at a time and meets with that person weekly to listen and offer emotional and spiritual support. This is a confidential ministry, and Stephen Ministers are trained before being assigned to a care receiver. Wayne Zion has had trained Stephen Ministers since 2017.

Thanks to Melissa Paulsen and our Stephen Ministers for bringing the Grief & the Healing Process presentation to Wayne Zion in April, 2022. Below is a link to the slide show and information shared.
