Stephen Ministry offers a proven and effective way to organize, equip, and establish a team of congregation members—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, one-to-one, Christ-centered care to people in the congregation and the community experiencing life difficulties.

If you have questions or think you might need a Stephen Minister, please contact us to discuss how this one-to-one, confidential care giver can walk along side to journey together through challenging times.


The counseling ministry offers a trustworthy group of counselors who provide professional guidance.

Christ-centered, professional counseling is available through our campus with licensed professional counselors that have years of education, life experience, and professional practice to help direct the healing process.

Our treatment approach addresses the whole person; emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Both male and female counselors are available and fees are low compared to other professional services in our community.
