Stephen's Ministry is an international program teaching Christian caregiving for lay people. Please visit www.stephenministries.org for more information.
I was trained as a SM leader in a week-long program in St. Louis a few years ago. St. Vincent Hospital used the program, and we had several SMs that supported caring for patients. Because of that training and experience, I was asked to help with the SM program at Messiah Lutheran in Brownsburg. I am proud to say that our own Jan Smith is participating in the class! I was a co-presenter yesterday afternoon with Pr. Erik from Messiah.
Way to go, Jan! We are all proud of you. She will be an official Stephen Minister in the spring of next year.
God be with you until we meet again!
