Stephen Ministry

Second B has the only Stephen Ministry program in Lubbock. We have served 2nd B and the Lubbock community since 1992. If you are in need of a Stephen Minister, or just want to know more about us please contact Dellinda Ebeling (806.777.0435) or La Nelle Ethridge (806.786.8207). You can self-refer to this one on one ministry.  The contact is completely confidential and during this time of pandemic we can connect through telephones or by Zoom. So, if you are feeling down, anxious, grieving or need to talk, we are available. All Stephen Ministers have received a minimum of 50 hours of specialized training. Give us a call if we can help.
