Stephen Ministry at Mitchell Road
You may or not be aware that Stephen Ministry is a well-respected caring ministry being used by our congregation and thousands of others across the US as an outreach to hurting people. Stephen Ministers are congregation members who attend approximately 50 hours of training to provide confidential, one-to-one, Christ-centered care to people in and outside of the congregation.
Each Stephen Minister is matched with a hurting person, men with men, women with women, and commits to meeting weekly, as needed, with that person to listen to, care for, pray for, and encourage them on a long-term basis. Stephen Ministers care for those dealing with issues such as grief, divorce, job loss, hospitalization, financial struggles, loneliness, convalescence, terminal illness, and other life difficulties. You don’t have to have experienced any of these issues to be an effective Stephen Minister.

If you're interested in being trained to be more effective in ministry to hurting people, with or without becoming a Stephen Minister, or have questions about Stephen Ministry, please call Curtis DuBose at 864-268-2218 at the church or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The training times and dates have not been determined yet, but are scheduled to begin in January 2024. We will do our best to accommodate as many of you who are interested as we can.
