Stephen Ministry

Trinity’s Stephen Ministry program provides distinctively Christian one‑to‑one care, support and friendship to those who are experiencing all kinds of life needs and circumstances, both in our congregation and community.


These times include, but are not limited to death of a family member or close friend; personal or family illness; depression; financial hardship; loss of a job; and birth of a child or other major life event.


Would you like to be connected to a Stephen Minister? Your Stephen minister will walk with you through this time in your life, prayerfully offering a listening ear and Christian friendship. Stephen Ministry is a confidential ministry: those receiving care can be sure their identity and conversations will remain private.


Would you like to be a Stephen Minister? Trinity provides opportunities for those interested in becoming Stephen Ministers to receive training. There is always a need for qualified, trained Stephen Ministers with a heart to serve others.
