Stephen Ministry

Sharing Christ’s love at Harbour and in the surrounding community by equipping Christians to provide one on one care for those experiencing difficulty in their lives.

Life is hard! At times we all need someone to care and someone who can help us make sense out of all that is going on in our lives. Stephen Ministry is designed to do just that.

Stephen Ministry

  • provides one-to-one Christian care
  • for hurting people in our congregation and community
  • weekly visits


What Is Stephen Ministry?

Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2, NRSV).

Stephen Ministry is the 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 hurting.

How Stephen Ministry Works

The best way to understand how Stephen Ministry works is to learn about three groups of people involved in this ministry: Stephen Leaders, Stephen Ministers, and care receivers.
