Tree of Life is part of a large international, ecumenical ministry called Stephen Ministry. Stephen Ministers are laypersons who have received extensive training as Christian caregivers and provide support for members and friends experiencing an emotional or spiritual need. The relationship between the Stephen Minister and their care receiver is a one to one, same gender match in which they meet together, at a time convenient for both, for prayer and conversation. In this way, the ministry of the congregation is extended beyond the pastor’s office to those in need. To access a Stephen Minister, please contact the church office.
