Stephen Ministry at Kindred

If you’re experiencing grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, or some other life crisis, Kindred Lutheran Stephen Ministers are here to help. Read more below about becoming a Stephen Minister or becoming a care receiver. 

Stephen Ministry

Below are some opportunities to gather together to talk about, explore, study and dwell in God’s Word.  No advanced experience required!  Everyone is welcome.  Everyone’s input is valuable and cherished.  And if you just want to sit back and listen, that’s fine too!


Stephen Ministers

A Stephen Minister usually provides care to one person at a time, meeting with that person once a week for about an hour. Twice a month, Stephen Ministers gather with their Stephen Leaders for supervision and continuing education.


Care Recievers

Care receivers are people—congregation members and others in the community—who receive care from a Stephen Minister. These are people struggling through a difficult time in life—experiencing grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, or some other life crisis.

Some important guidelines for this caring relationship protect both the care receiver and the Stephen Minister:

  • The relationship between a care receiver and a Stephen Minister is confidential.
  • Men are matched with men; women with women.
  • When a care receiver’s needs exceed what a Stephen Minister can provide, the Stephen Ministry team makes a referral to an appropriate mental health professional or other community resource.


If you are in need of a Stephen Minister or would like to serve as a Stephen Minister please contact Pastor Andrew.

The three ARROWS remind us that we are “sent” by Jesus into our homes, neighborhoods, workplaces, schools, and everyday lives to represent Him for the sake of the world.

Jesus tells us, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

We encourage one another to reach out to others by investing in their lives and inviting them to Christ and his church.
