Interested in becoming a Stephen Minister?
Stephen Ministers Offer God’s Loving Presence
A Stephen Minister is a Lakeway Church member who has completed 50 hours of Christ-centered relationship training and is willing to make a minimum two-year service commitment. Once trained, Stephen Ministers are commissioned to provide quality care to a care receiver for about one hour each week to help in a life challenge or crisis. Commissioned Stephen Ministers also commit to attending peer supervision and continuing education sessions twice per month.
