Stephen Ministry provides a listening ear and a caring relationship for people experiencing a life crisis or challenge, such as:

 

  • Divorce
  • Death of a loved one
  • Hospitalization
  • Terminal illness
  • Loneliness
  • Relocation
  • Unemployment
  • Retirement
  • Empty nest
  • Other life transitions

If you feel like Stephen Ministry may help you with a current life situation, please contact Pastor Steve Driver at 219.462.8207 ext.218 or at sdriver@immanuelvalpo.org

Stephen Ministry also recruits, selects, trains, commissions, and supervises congregation members to provide one-to-one Christian care to persons in need on behalf of the congregation. Stephen Ministers typically are assigned one care receiver at a time and meet with that person for about one hour each week. Stephen Ministers usually serve for two years, which includes an initial 50 hours of training followed by twice-monthly supervision and continuing education sessions.
