StephenSeriesLogo_DarkBlue“CHRIST caring FOR people THROUGH people.”

Stephen Ministry is a program of one-on-one care by lay caregivers, who have been trained and empowered to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting. The Stephen Ministers listen, empathize, encourage, pray, and provide spiritual support for as long as needed. God works in and through them to bring hope and healing.

If you are experiencing a crisis or simply find yourself stressed by everyday life and feel you would benefit from a caring confidante, contact Rev. Dr. Carl Rhoads at (318) 424-7771 or crhoads@fumcshreveport.orgHands image

Stephen Ministers are also available each Sunday after services in the Sanctuary at the door on the left.

If you are interested in becoming a Stephen Minister, you may also contact Rev. Dr. Rhoads or Linda Ferguson through the church office at (318) 424-7771. Additional information on the services, function, and purpose of Stephen Ministry is available through the official Stephen Ministers website.
