So Basic Yet So Profound
When becoming a Stephen Minister, you often think about the impact you'll have on others' lives. But this Stephen Minister found that her life was impacted as well:
After attending the informational meeting about Stephen Ministry, and listening to others who had been Stephen Ministers and care receivers, I knew I wanted to become a Stephen Minister—but little did I know how my life would be changed. The training provided is so impactful and I have benefited tremendously. My faith has been strengthened and continues to grow. The trust, connection and fellowship with the others on the Stephen Ministry team has created bonds that are like family.
The underlying principle for Stephen Ministry—that we are to love others because Jesus first loved us—is so basic, yet so profound. Stephen Ministry has already had a profound impact on my life—and we’ve only just begun. I am so grateful to have this opportunity to learn, to grow, and to serve the Lord.
