Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry provides confidential, one-to-one Christ-centered emotional and spiritual support to anyone who is grieving, suffering a serious or life threatening illness or experiencing a life-altering transition, challenge or crisis.

Stephen Ministers are lay congregation members trained to provide one-to-one Christ-centered care. They have a compassionate heart for those who are hurting, and they’ve been equipped with caring ministry skills by Desert Spring Church’s Stephen Leaders.

A Stephen Minister typically has one care receiver at a time and meets with that person once a week to listen, care, pray, encourage, and offer emotional and spiritual support.
