Our Stephen Ministry equips and empowers lay caregivers ("Stephen Ministers") to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting. Those receiving care may be struggling with grief, a divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, or some other crisis. A Stephen Minister usually provides care to one person at a time, meeting with that person once a week for about an hour.

If you'd like to receive care from one of our Stephen Ministers, please contact Hank Dobbins at or (706) 518-8773. Several of our Stephen Ministers will be available soon, as they are currently wrapping up their current caring relationships. All inquiries and discussions will be strictly confidential.

Our church also is planning to hold another Stephen Minister training soon. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a Stephen Minister, contact Hank so he can gauge interest in the program and begin planning a date.
