Steven Ministries

Stephen Ministry is a one-to-one lay ministry that provides confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.

Since its inception in 1975, more than 12,000 congregations in more than 170 Christian denominations have Stephen Ministry. Stephen Ministers in churches throughout the U.S. and Canada as well as 29 other countries have served more than 1 million people in their time of need.

In August 2015, Rev. Little and Carol Frazier attended an intensive week-long Stephen Leader training seminar in Pittsburgh. In January 2016, a group of folks from our church embarked on a 10-month journey to become Stephen Ministers. After dedicating two hours every week to learning how to be a caring, compassionate caregiver, they were ordained and Stephen Ministry at Mt. Vernon Church began.

Most of the care givers (Stephen Ministers) have or are currently ministering to a care receiver.

Who are care receivers? Anyone who is going through a difficult time in their life. They could be experiencing the loss of a loved one, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, or other life crisis.

The relationship between a care receiver and Stephen Minister is confidential. Men are paired with men; women are paired with women. If the needs of the care receiver are beyond what a care giver can provide, a referral is made to an appropriate mental health professional or other community resource.

More information about Stephen Ministry, or if you or someone you know could benefit from a Stephen Minister, see one of the Stephen Leaders or Ministers.

On the third Sunday of each month we will take an offering of your loose change that will go toward supporting missions.  Empty those change purses!
