Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry is a system of caring ministry. Stephen Ministers are specially trained congregation members who provide one-to-one Christian care to people who are experiencing a life challenge or crisis.

Grace Presbyterian has been a Stephen Ministry congregation since 2004 when it was founded by Jeanne Harris and Rev. Terri Matthews. Since that time, 15 Stephen Ministers and 2 Stephen Leaders have been trained.  Stephen Ministers have provided thousands of hours of one-to-one caring.

Currently active Stephen Ministers:

Becky Couch Charles Kennedy Faye Sanders
John Sutton Dick Townsend Janie Whinery

Louie Nash – Stephen Leader

We ask the congregation for their prayers for this important ministry. Pray for the Stephen Ministers, their leaders, and their care receivers.
