The Stephen Ministry program was brought to Emmaus 25 years ago. Many laypeople from Emmaus have committed themselves to becoming Stephen Ministers and have received 50 hours of training. This training prepares folks to listen and walk with others in times of struggle.
Some examples of why someone would seek a Stephen Minister might be: job loss, divorce, spiritual struggles, loss of a loved one, financial difficulty, loneliness or other life changes (retirement, sending children to college, etc.). Stephen Ministers provide confidential, Christian caregiving. Stephen Ministry has ministered to many members of our congregation and our community here in Northfield over the years.
