What is a Stephen Minister?

A Stephen Minister is . . .

  • a child of God who walks beside a hurting person;
  • a caring Christian friend who really listens;
  • a lay person who has received 50 hours of training in how to provide distinctively Christian care.

A Stephen Minister is NOT . . .

  • a counselor or therapist;
  • a problem-solver;
  • a casual visitor.


Stephen Ministry helps meet the needs of individuals who are:


  • hospitalized;
  • terminally ill;
  • bereaved;
  • in a job crisis;
  • unemployed;
  • retired
  • new members of the church;
  • disabled;
  • homebound;
  • lonely;
  • widowed;
  • discouraged;
  • adjusting to the birth of a child;
  • unable to have a baby;
  • the family or friend of someone experiencing a crisis;
  • in a spiritual crisis; or
  • looking for a caring Christian friend


We’re excited you're here! Our goal is to help you find groups and ministries that meet your interests and needs. God has brought you here for a reason. He wants you to find ways to use your unique gifts to contribute to the mission and ministry of His church. We hope you will open your heart to let Him guide you to YOUR place within Dunwoody UMC!
