Stephen Ministry

Updated: Jun 17, 2023

What is Stephen Ministry?

Stephen Ministry is an extension of pastoral care. It was founded in 1975 to provide one-on-one, distinctively Christian care to hurting people. A Stephen Minister meets weekly with a care receiver to provide hope and encouragement. Stephen Ministers care, so that Christ can cure! Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church became part of Stephen Ministry over 30 years ago.

Christ Caring For People,Through People

Stephen Ministers can:

  • meet weekly with you

  • pray with and for you

  • visit you in the hospital or nursing home

  • serve you the Eucharist

  • connect you with other care ministries
