Stephen Ministry is Your Ministry.
Community, Compassion, Faith: These words express the heart of our AMUMC congregation and the heart of Stephen Ministry.
Community: Stephen Ministers “help the church be the church”. They walk beside and support those in our midst who are experiencing such painful things as separation/divorce, grief, illness, unemployment by providing confidential one-on-one care.
Compassion: God has gifted and called all His people to ministry. Stephen Ministers recognize that God gifted them with a special heart for caring and took the 50 hours of intense training required to become a Stephen Minister.
Faith: Christ asks all of us as God’s people to pray regularly for God’s blessing, for the Holy Spirit to guide and empower us and to give thanks to God for His presence in our midst.
Stephen Ministers know that they just provide the care and God provides the cure--the healing and wholeness needed when it seems like life is falling apart and God is far away. Compassion. Community. Faith. Our Stephen Ministry program puts these words into action for all of us.
