Hope Church joined the Stephen Ministry program in 2013. It currently has three Stephen Leaders, seven trained Stephen Ministers and two members currently attending Stephen Minister training.

Stephen Ministers are laypeople who receive Christian caregiving training in their congregation and then provide one-on-one Christ-centered care to hurting people. Each Stephen Minister typically has one care receiver at a time and meets with that person on a confidential basis once a week.

Stephen Ministers provide high quality, one-to-one Christian care to individuals facing a variety of crises or life challenges – people who are experiencing grief, divorce, cancer, financial difficulties, hospitalization, chronic illness, job loss, disabilities, loneliness, a spiritual crisis or other life struggles.

In addition to caring for members of the congregation, Stephen Ministers can provide care to nonmembers, reaching out to unchurched people in crisis.

Many pastors believe that Stephen Ministers deepen, expands, and extends the caregiving capacity of their congregations. A team of Stephen Ministers, together with a pastor, can provide ongoing care to more people than the pastor ever could alone.

If you are in need of a Stephen Minister, please contact Karen Ward at or Pastor Tori at All contacts are completely confidential.
