Stephen Ministry at MVPC

Christ caring
for people
through people.

Our Stephen Ministers are here to care!

Our congregation's Stephen Ministry equips volunteers to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to individuals in our congregation and community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives.
Join the Stephen Ministery Team, training is coming in winter 2016. If you'd like information on becoming a Stephen Minister, please see our table in the foyer or contact Pastor Mark Fisher.

Stephen Ministers are trained volunteers who support and extend the care that pastors and Small Groups continue to provide by reaching out with God's love to people who are hurting - both congregation members and non-members alike.

Everyone experiences challenges in life - times when we could benefit from the support of a caring Christian friend.
Consider letting a Stephen Minister help, we're trained to listen, care, encourage, pray, and walk alonside you during difficult times.  It's confidential, free, and very helpful.

Stephen Ministers are ready to provide the emotional and spiritual care we need when faced with a crisis or difficulty such as the following:
  • a loss of a loved one
  • hospitalization
  • divorce or separation
  • loneliness or discouragement
  • spiritual crisis
  • unemployment or job crisis
  • terminal illness
  • incarceration
  • aging
  • birth
  • adoption
  • miscarriage
  • infertility
  • a chronic illness
  • relocation
  • recovery after an accident or disaster
  • and more
If you'd like to get involved with Stephen Ministry, either as a volunteer, or for help with a life challenge, please feel free to contact Pastor Mark Fisher, our Care Pastor for further information.
