What is Stephen Ministry?

Stephen Ministry is a system through which members of Lamb of God are trained and organized to help provide Christian care giving to members of our congregation and community. This multiplies the amount of caring ministry Lamb of God can provide by giving us a whole team of skilled caregivers who are equipped to bring Christ’s healing love to people who are grieving, in crisis, or experiencing other stresses in their lives.

We have many needs for care in our congregation and community: people experiencing divorce, grief, a terminal illness, loss of a job, relocation, an empty nest, retirement, hospitalization, loneliness, and many other stresses or challenges. Often people with needs suffer silently or do not request or receive the level of care that they really need. Stephen Ministry expands the care Lamb of God can offer by equipping and organizing members to provide Christian care. 

Everybody benefits from Stephen Ministry. Those receiving care from Stephen Ministers benefit because they receive prayer and support throughout the crisis they face. Stephen Ministers benefit through the spiritual growth they experience from being involved in meaningful ministry. Everyone benefits from the knowledge that special care is available to those who need it. We offer a place where you can refer a friend, relative, neighbor, coworker, or anyone else you know who is going through a difficult time so that they can receive special care when they need it most. 

If you are in need of care, please contact Pastor Rance Settle at  or Pastor Mark Payne at .
