Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry is a confidential, one-on-one caring ministry where trained lay Christian caregivers walk with individuals going through a difficult time in their life such as divorce, the loss of a job, serious illness, loss of a loved one, hospitalization, terminal illness, relocation, retirement, or other losses.

Galilee’s Stephen Ministers go through a thorough application process, take 50 hours of training, and commit to two years of service before beginning as Stephen Ministers. They are commissioned by Galilee to serve as confidential one-on-one caregivers for people of our congregation who are going through difficult times in their lives.

Launched at Galilee in 2009, Galilee became one of over 11,000 churches worldwide, which participate in Stephen Ministry. Since that time, nine Galilee Stephen Ministers have provided confidential one-on-one care for people of our congregation who were going through difficult times in their lives.

Ann Kuo heads the team of Galilee Stephen Ministry leaders.
