Stephen Ministry: Compassionate service and support
As a pastor the first thing we need to admit to ourselves and our people is "we cannot do it all by ourselves." Stephen Ministry is a huge benefit and blessing to the church and its pastor being an ongoing commitment to those in need of pastoral care that isn't resolved in one visit. These well trained (over 50 hours of initial training) ministers are ready and able to provide a compassionate, discreet, and confidential ministry of listening.
We now have three fully trained Stephen Leaders which makes this ministry operational at Knox. As we continue to grow we are always cognizant that we need to invest in the loving care that Christ calls us to as disciples. We are interested in recruiting new Stephen Ministers, if you feel you might have a calling to care for others in this special ministry contact one of our Stephen Leaders: Beth Gunding, Karl Reichert, or Lise Simmons.
