Grace UMC is pleased and honored to be a Stephen Ministry church.  Believing that all Christians are ministers, we strive to fulfill God’s call to “bear one another’s burdens” (Galatians 6:2) by encouraging and counseling those seeking wholeness through Christ in the midst of life’s burdens.

What is Stephen Ministry?
Stephen Ministry is grounded in Jesus’ command to love one another.  Through one-to-one caring and nurturing relationships, those who are hurting receive the love and care they need to support them.

What is a Stephen Minister?
A Stephen Minister is a child of God who walks beside a person who is hurting and takes the time to truly listen.  Each Stephen Minister receives fifty hours of training in how to best provide distinctively Christian care.
