Stephen Ministry

Ask yourself…

  • Am I a good listener?
  • Do I naturally empathize with others?
  • Do I have a desire to walk alongside those who are hurting?
  • Am I looking for an opportunity to serve by using my relational skills?

We are launching Stephen Ministry at Calvary Church, and if you answered “yes!” to any of these questions, then you have the gifts and skills to care for others in our congregation. To prepare for lay ministry, Stephen Ministers receive thorough, practical training as well as ongoing supervision and support. 

What is a Stephen Minister?

Stephen Ministers are congregation members trained to provide confidential one-on-one, Christ-centered care for people in crisis or with other pressing needs.

What do Stephen Ministers do?

  • Listen
  • Explore feelings
  • Pray
  • Share Christ’s love
  • Maintain confidentiality
  • Attend to the care-giving process and leave the results to God

Stephen Ministers care for those:

  • Grieving
  • In a crisis
  • Needing long-term care
  • Hospitalized
  • Going through a divorce
  • Experiencing loss
  • Dying

If interested in being a part of this vital ministry at Calvary Church, please fill out an application and email to Ben Tyvoll.

Barnabas

The Barnabas Care Team meets the needs of senior adults through prayer, phone calls, and home/hospital visits. The purpose of this team is to provide care for the body and a cure for the soul, and we do this by being a friend to the house-bound, those living in assisted living facilities, and special need adults. (Shameless plug—If you have a passion for caring for senior adults, consider joining the Barnabas team!)
