Stephen Ministry
Stephen Leaders: Sally Elliott and Wilda Rowe

Stephen Ministry is one on one Christian Caregiving. At Trinity we have 11 lay people who are trained to be confidential listeners. Each has received 50 hours of initial training and continues to have additional education yearly. Stephen Ministers meet with a person on a weekly basis who is having a hard time with some part of his or her life. It might be illness, death, parenting issues, financial, or just many small pieces that have converged on an individual.

Our training prepares us to be a confidential listener, as well as a resource for ways to help. We want to be a resource for you and others you know. The care receiver does not need to be a member of Trinity, simply wanting someone to listen to them and pray with them. We have recently been blessed with two additional members of the congregation who are Stephen Ministers.

We are hoping to train more of you in this art of listening in the spring. So if you are interested in learning more or know of someone who might be interested in taking the training letone of us know. Additionally if you know of someone who needs a special friend please speak to Wilda Rowe, Sally Elliott or Fr. Brown.
