Stephen Ministry Training Course

Monday Evenings, Sept 9 – Nov 11

Are you a good listener with a compassionate heart? Do you find that people come to you when they need to talk about a crisis in their life? Or would you like to learn to become an empathetic Christian friend to walk with someone during a tough time in their life? 

If so, please consider serving our church as a Stephen Minister. They provide confidential care to people in the congregation who are experiencing difficulties in life, such as grief, job loss, divorce, major illness, spiritual struggles or other types of crises. While demand for Stephen Ministers dropped during the pandemic, it has since risen again and new ministers are needed!

If you have questions, please contact Sheila Anderson (319-213-6611 or or
