Stephen Ministry

Compassionate care for those who are hurting

Christ-centered care

Stephen Ministers are men and women from Village Church who are trained and certified to offer Christ-centered care to people who are hurting or going through crisis. These ministers have hearts of compassion and provide emotional and spiritual support with confidentiality. A care receiver and Stephen Minister typically meet 1-on-1 weekly, for a number of months.

"Love one another as I have loved you." - John 15:12

Examples of situations where Stephen Ministry can be helpful:


  • loss of a loved one
  • empty-nest
  • cancer diagnosis
  • bankruptcy
  • miscarriage
  • grief

We care about you.

You are not alone.

If you or a loved one are going through a difficult time in life, our Stephen Ministry leaders would like to meet with you. We will prayerfully match you with a Stephen Minister.


If you want to join the team and become trained as a Stephen Minister with Village Church and feel you are prepared to make the time commitment, please let us know! We would love to meet with you to discuss further.
