Stephen Ministry






Fellowship's vision is to be a place where no one hurts alone.

Stephen Ministry  is a one-to-one, confidential, care-giving ministry that provides distinctively Christian care to those in and outside of FBC's church body who are experiencing loss or in a time of crisis such as the death of a loved one, marital struggles, divorce, parenting a wayward teen, chronic illness, unemployment, and many other life challenges.

Stephen Ministers are highly-trained lay people who meet with their care receivers once a week. They listen, care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support. The caring relationship lasts as long as the care receiver is in need. 

If you have ever been a caring friend who listened and really took the time to hear the heart of a hurting person with unconditional love and acceptance, consider becoming a Stephen Minister. 

If you are hurting or going through a difficult time and need a listening, non-judgmental, caring ear and heart, contact our ministry office to ask for a Stephen Minister.
