Stephen Ministry

WHAT IS IT?

Stephen Ministry is a distinctively Christian form of lay care provided by congregation members trained to provide one-to-one support for persons in a variety of stress producing circumstances. Becoming a Stephen Minister involves a two-year commitment that includes 50 hours of initial training plus continuing education and supervision while serving. Training of Stephen Ministers and oversight of the program is provided by a Stephen Leadership Team.

WHY?

The Christ-centered training of the Stephen Ministry program can have a transforming effect on the individual Stephen Ministers, enhancing their faith and their skill in providing Christ’s healing care to hurting individuals within the congregation, in the larger community, and in the circle of family and friends close to each Stephen Minister.

HOW?

If you are interested in learning more about Stephen Ministry at Griffin First United Methodist Church, or if you know someone who may be interested, please feel free to pick up an application and class schedule in the church office.

Brochures containing more information are also available.  For more information contact Bill and Joann Powers at 770/228-2435 or Debby Stikes at 770/228-3020.
