What is Stephen Ministry?

City View Church’s Stephen Ministry equips people to provide one-to-one Christian care to people who are experiencing difficulties in their lives. It is grounded in Jesus’ command to love one another.

Stephen Ministry is a confidential ministry. The identity of those receiving care and everything they discuss with a Stephen Minister remain private.
