Stephen Ministry Introductory Workshop
Join More than 11,000 Congregations in Providing Care
Are there hurting people in our churches and community whose needs are going unmet? Can you imagine the difference it would make to have 10 or 20 lay caregivers in your church who are well-trained and ready to respond to people in need? In our district Timothy Lutheran Church and Lindenwood Area Senior Ministry have learned an effective, proven strategy for equipping laypeople to provide high-quality, distinctively Christian care.
On Saturday, 10/5/2013, Timothy Lutheran Church in Saint Louis, MO is hosting a Stephen Ministry Introductory Workshop from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Registration begins at 8:00 a.m., and refreshments will be served. This workshop is an excellent opportunity for church leaders and other members to learn about the Stephen Series, a ministry system that equips and mobilizes laypeople for effective caring ministry.
Practical Ministry Skills
At the workshop, you will experience a sample of the training Stephen Ministers (lay caregivers) receive, and you will take home practical knowledge and skills on “Ministering to Those Experiencing Grief” and “How to Care in a Distinctively Christian Way.” You will also learn why churches from more than 150 different Christian denominations use the Stephen Series for training and organizing laypeople for one-to-one caring ministry.
A Highly Affordable Workshop
The cost of the workshop is $15 per person or $50 for a group of four or more from the same congregation. For more information, or to register for the Stephen Ministry Introductory Workshop, call Stephen Ministries at (314) 428-2600. You can also register online at www.stephenministry.org/workshop.
