stephen's ministry

     Stephen Ministry provides a distinctively Christian

lay ministry to people in need. St. Mark Stephen Ministry values people and wants them to experience the love of Christ, especially when they are hurting, troubled, or in need.

      St. Mark Stephen Ministry is a system through which members of St. Mark Lutheran are trained and organized to help provide one-on-one Christian care-giving to members of  our congregation and community. A Stephen Minister is a lay church member who has a passion to help others while keeping confidentiality.
