Stephen Ministry

Are You Going through a Difficult Time?

A Stephen Minister can help. Stephen Ministers are members of our congregation who listen, care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support to people going through a crisis or difficult time.

Stephen Minister Care

Stephen Ministry is a one-to-one Christian caring ministry to people in our congregation and community experiencing challenges in life - grief, loneliness, divorce, hospitalization disability, job loss, and many other life difficulties.  After completing a 50-hour training course, Stephen Ministers are equipped to provide confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting. Stephen Ministers participate in ongoing peer supervision to ensure the quality and consistency of care. Since 1998, Stephen Ministers at Milford First have provided thousands of hours of care to people in and out of our congregation.
