Becoming a Stephen Minister
Becoming a Stephen Ministry is a call to make an impact in the kingdom of God. It is an opportunity to use the gifts that the Lord has given you as a Christian to uplift the body of Christ.
"You are the body of Christ. Each one of you is a part of it." 1 Corinthians 12:27
The Stephen Ministers at Union Baptist Church are congregation members who are trained, supervised, and authorized to offer one-to-one care to other people approaching or going through difficult situations. They serve others spending time weekly listening: providing support, encouragement, and presence.
UBC Stephen Leaders have gifts and skills in areas such as leadership, teaching, and organizing people, along with a heart for caring ministry.
Stephen Leaders establish and direct Stephen Ministry in a congregation. We build awareness of Stephen Ministry within the congregation and community.
