What is Stephen Ministry?


Stephen Ministry began in 1975. The Stephen Series is now in more than 10,000 congregations from more than 150 Christian denominations, in all 50 states, 10 Canadian provinces, and 23 others countries. More than 55,000 pastors, church staff, and laypersons have been trained as Stephen Leaders (those who oversee and direct Stephen Ministry in the congregation). More than 500,000 people have trained as Stephen Ministers in their congregations. More than a million people have received care from a Stephen Minister in the formal one-to-one Stephen Ministry caring relationship, and millions of others have received care from Stephen Ministers in informal ways.
