Stephen Ministry is Fox River’s one-to-one care-giving ministry.
Stephen Ministers are lay Christians selected, trained and supervised by Fox River’s Stephen Leaders to provide confidential and effective Christian care to those impacted by life’s crises and tragedies
At some time or another in life, everyone will experience crises, difficulties and tragedies. When, and not if, that happens, our fast-paced lives may derail into hurt, hopelessness or confusion. During these times, people can benefit greatly from a caring relationship with someone who will “walk through the valley” with them.
