At Good Shepherd, there are two L.I.F.E. Recovery Support Groups:

Stephen Ministry One-on-One Crisis Care

Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. -John 13:34

Stephen Ministry is grounded in Jesus’ command to love one another. Through one-to-one caring relationships, those who are hurting receive the love and care they need to support them through difficult times. Completely confidential, a Stephen Minister is someone you can trust to walk with through difficult times.

  • Is life more than you can handle alone right now?

  • Is your health, attitude, or relationships suffering?

  • Are you adjusting to a new job, changed marital status, serious illness, the death of a loved one, a recent move?

  • Would you like to have someone in your life that really cares?

A Stephen Minister can HELP! 

Everyone goes through hard times. Having someone to care, listen, and share God’s love with you can help get you through the confusion, stress, and loneliness you may be experiencing. A Stephen Minister is a congregation member who is called, trained, and supervised by Stephen Leaders to provide distinctively Christian care to persons in need. Typically, they are assigned one care receiver at a time and meet with that person for about one hour each week.

Stephen Ministers are:

  • Someone to talk to

  • Someone to be trusted

  • Someone to be there with regular visits during times of crisis

  • Someone who does not “do for” but rather is “there for”

Stephen Ministers usually serve for two years, which includes an initial 65 hours of training followed by twice-monthly supervision and continuing education sessions. If you would like to meet with a Stephen Minister, or know someone else who does, please call the church office and ask to speak to a pastor, or contact us by email:
