Welcome to the UBC Stephen Ministry
The UBC Stephen Ministry offers is a one-to-one lay caring ministry that takes place in congregations that use the Stephen Series system. Stephen Ministry congregations equip and empower lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are seeking support, experiencing life transformations and changing, or hurting.

The Westchester County Interfaith Initiative, has examined issues such as suicide and the houses of worship, and the intersectionality of faith and mental health services. One of the primary areas of focus for the committee has been connecting congregations and parishioners to local mental health services. This effort led to the creation of 2022 Directory of Faith Affirming Community Mental Health Providers.

Looking to give of yourself for the Kingdom?
A UBC Stephen Minister usually provides care to one person at a time, meeting with that person once a week for about an hour.
UBC Stephen Ministers gather twice a month with their Stephen Leaders for supervision and once a month for continuing education.
UBC Stephen Ministers provide care for Union Baptist Church members as well as people in the broader community. This enhances and expands our a congregation’s outreach in a powerful way.
