Stephen Ministry

“Bear one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2

Stephen Ministry is a one-on-one, confidential ministry of care and encouragement. Stephen Ministers are members who have completed 50 hours of distinctively Christian training that prepares them to intercede with sensitivity with those experiencing times of crisis, recovery and indecision. The Ministers pray with those suffering, extend spiritual and emotional support, and offer encouragement.

Stephen Ministers exercise the gifts of compassion, listening and prayer. They are commissioned by the church and work with the pastoral staff for assignments, and receive ongoing education and supervision. If you would like a visit from a Stephen Minister, please call Barbara Sanders, 918-633-4970, or Rev. Elaine Cervini, 918-584-4701, to be matched with a Minister whose experience and skills meet your needs. All work performed by the Stephen Ministry remains confidential.
