Stephen Ministry

SS_logo_tagline_blueThe Community Church of Mountain Lakes is proud to announce its new Stephen Ministry program. Six women from the congregation have recently completed a one year training process to be Stephen Ministers.

What are Stephen Ministers? Stephen Ministers are laypeople trained to provide one-to-one, Christ-centered care. They have a compassionate heart for those who are hurting, and they’re equipped with caring ministry skills by their congregation’s Stephen Leaders. A Stephen Minister typically has one care receiver at a time and meets with that person once a week to listen, care, pray, encourage, and offer emotional and spiritual support.

We are excited to begin this new ministry. If you are interested in learning more, or receiving care from a Stephen Minister, please contact Dr. Duke at revdrduke@optimum.net or call the church office at 973-334-6500. You can also learn more here.
