The Wheeler Avenue Stephen Ministry, a division of Congregational Care, is a spiritual care model that offers hope for recovery in grief and health challenges. Through mentoring partnerships, the Stephen Ministers serve as visionary guides for parishioners through seasons of despair, dismay and distress. As the process of healing occurs, the care receivers experience encounters with disciplines of the Christian faith that promote transformation through the liberating power of God’s Holy Spirit.
