Stephen Ministry

 

Every day you see people who are hurting: those who have lost a job, lost a loved one, gone through a divorce, or are battling a terminal illness. Stephen Ministers are God's representatives who bring his love to those who are hurting. As an extension of our ministerial staff, Stephen Ministers have an impact on people's lives at times when they really need someone to care.

 

Stephen Ministry Peer Supervision Meetings are held bi-monthly, on the 2nd and 4th Mondays in the Center for Spiritual Renewal, 6:30pm - 8:00pm. This is a support group of caregivers for persons needing emotional or spiritual support through difficult times in life. The assigned caregivers meet with care receivers weekly and then bi-monthly for peer supervision meetings, continuing education and support for each other.

JupiterFIRST offers an in-depth training class that follows the national Stephen Ministry program of training. It is intended to equip qualified lay caregivers to provide high quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting. This 36-week training class is currently underway. If you want to find out more about how you can be involved in this one-to-one caregiving ministry, please contact Donna Totino at the church office, 561-747-8340 or at donnatotino@jupiterfirstchurch.org.
