Stephen Ministry

Christ Caring for People through People

There are times when every one of us experiences difficulties such as loss of a loved one, hospitalization, imprisonment, cancer, job loss, loneliness or other challenges.

God never intended for us to go through these experiences alone. That's why God has brought us together as a congregation and why we have Stephen Ministry. Stephen Ministers are members of Parkway Heights who have received 50 hours of caregiving training to minister to people experiencing a crisis, facing a challenge or simply going through a tough time. A Stephen Minister will meet with you - privately and confidentially - on a weekly basis to listen, care, encourage, support and remind you of Christ's presence in your life.

Parkway Heights is one of more than 10,000 Stephen Ministry congregations from more than 100 denominations worldwide. Since 1975, more than half a million Stephen Ministers have been trained, providing care to more than two million people in need.
