    If you are going through a rough time, whether because of job loss, divorce, loneliness, cancer, death of a loved one or something else, please consider asking us for your own Stephen Minister. 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. Call Esther Welch at 414.464.3463.

    Important to Note

    • Stephen Ministers are not counselors. They are trained Christian caregivers. Their role is to listen and care—not counsel or advise.
    • Stephen Ministry is a supervised ministry. Stephen Ministers engage in twice-monthly supervision to ensure that they are providing the best-quality Christian care.
    • Stephen Ministry is a confidential ministry. What a care receiver tells a Stephen Minister remains confidential. Even in supervision, the names of care receivers and specific details are never discussed.
    • Stephen Ministers do not make cold calls. They are assigned only to people who agree to receive the care of a Stephen Minister.
