Find Christ-centered care when you are hurting

We provide one-to-one Christian care during tough times

Even when life is difficult, you may not need someone to fix your problems but simply to listen, be there, and walk with you as you’re struggling. For over 15 years, our Stephen Ministers have been providing people just like you high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care when you are hurting. With over 50 hours of training in walking with others in difficult circumstances, let’s explore together if this ministry is a good fit for you.
