Stephen Ministry Training
March 30, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until May 18, 2023
Stephen Ministry began in 1975 and is currently in 13,000 congregations from over 180 Christian denominations across the USA and around the world.
It is a one-to-one caregiving Lay Ministry, designed to provide Christian care and support to people in the congregation and community who are experiencing life difficulties, and it has been active at MPPC for over twenty years. During that time, over one hundred MPPC church members have been trained as Stephen Ministers and we currently have 12 active Stephen Ministers on our roster. We would like to have more!
We will be offering the Stephen Ministry Training Course at MPPC from January 12 – May 18, 2023 (Thursday nights from 6-8 pm). Training topics will include The Art of Listening, Feelings, Assertiveness, Confidentiality, Maintaining Boundaries, and ministering to people in specific situations such as Grief and Depression. To register for the training, contact Rev. Lib McGregor Simmons, firstname.lastname@example.org.
