Stephen Ministry CARES
Christ Caring for People, Through People
Stephen Ministers bring God’s love into the lives of people who are going through a difficult time or experiencing a crisis. They listen, care, support, encourage, and pray with and for a person who is hurting. And, in the midst of this confidential one-to-one caring relationship, God’s healing love comes pouring through.
If someone you know is facing a crisis – large or small – and could benefit from the caring presence of a Stephen Minister, talk to one of our Stephen Leaders: Lisa Homady at 330.460.7315 or Carol Maline at 330.460.7336. Our Stephen Ministers are ready to care for you!
