Care Giving

 

Stephen Ministry
A program based on distinctively Christian caring.  In addition to giving care receivers a compassionate listening ear, Stephen Ministers invite care receivers into a relationship with Christ.  Stephen Ministers are trained to offer biblical encouragement, therefore helping care receivers to nurture and grow in the faith.  Our Stephen Ministers received 50+ hours of training in Christian caregiving which equips them to walk with care receivers through life’s difficulties.

Our Stephen Ministers have provided many hours of listening, care, support, and sharing of God’s love for our King of Kings family on a one-on-one confidential basis.  It is clear that God is working though the Stephen Ministry at King of Kings, and our Stephen Ministers are reaching out to those who are in need of care.

If you have an issue or concern you would like to share in confidence, please contact the church office, 564-7360, to talk with one of the following members: Betty Yergert, Rosetta Land, Barbara Rose or Mike Parga.
