Stephen Ministry at Jones Chapel UMC

Stephen Ministry provides the Jones Chapel UMC congregation with the training, resources, and ongoing support to organize and equip a team of lay caregivers--called Stephen Ministers--in the congregation. Stephen Ministers provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care and support to people experiencing grief, divorce, cancer, job loss, loneliness, disability, relocation, and other life difficulties. Since 1975, the Stephen Ministries organization, based in St. Louis, Missouri, has helped more than 11,000 congregations implement Stephen Ministry. These congregations represent more than 150 denominations and come from all 50 states, 10 Canadian provinces, and 23 other countries.




Want to Become a Stephen Minister?

With Stephen Ministry--

    •     Pastors don't carry the burden of being the congregation's sole caregivers. They have a team
           of gifted, trained, committed lay caregivers ready to minister to hurting people inside and
           outside the congregation.

    •     Laypeople have a chance to use and strengthen their leadership and caregiving gifts in
           meaningful ministry--serving others while experiencing tremendous spiritual growth.

    •     People who are hurting no longer suffer alone. A caring Christian friend comes alongside them
           to provide emotional and spiritual care for as long as the need persists.

    •     Congregations have a practical, powerful way to:

         "Equip God's people for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ." (Eph 4:12)
         "Love one another as I have loved you." (John 13:34)
         "Bear one another's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ." (Gal 6:2)
         "Go make disciples." (Matthew 28:19)
