Stephen Ministry


St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church is a Stephen Ministry Congregation. In Stephen Ministry congregations, lay caregivers (called Stephen Ministers) provide one-to-one Christian care to those in need. Persons needing special help, or those just needing someone to talk and pray with during a particularly difficult time, can be encouraged and comforted by meeting with a Stephen Minister.
Stephen Ministry’s one-to-one Christian care can provide help to those who are:

  • bereaved,
  • hospitalized,
  • terminally ill,
  • separated or divorced,
  • unemployed,
  • relocated, and
  • anyone facing a crisis or life challenge.
Contact Pastor Sam if you’re interested in becoming a Stephen Minister or if you would like a Stephen Minister’s services.
