Stephen Ministry is the one-to-one lay caring ministry that takes place in congregations that use the Stephen Series system. Stephen Ministry congregations equip and empower lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.
Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
Bethany’s Stephen Ministry is one of the strongest ministries at the church and is a Christ-centered “walk-along-side” ministry for those who are struggling through a hard time in their lives. Stephen Ministers go through 50 hours of training, not to be therapists and counselors, but to stand WITH those who need a stabilizing, encouraging influence in their lives…for as long as it takes. We are always looking for those who need a Stephen Minister and those who might like to be trained to BE a Stephen Minister.” Call the church at 843-873-1230 for information.
