  • Stephen Ministry Training Begins October 19, 2015
    Stephen Ministry

    Be a Stephen Minister

    Stephen Ministry, a 40-year-old Christian organization, brings lay people in to ministry by equipping them to provide one-to-one Christian care to people in congregations and communities who are experiencing difficulties in their lives. Pastors will always be on the front lines of care, but there are many more needs for ongoing, one-to-one care than pastors can effectively meet by themselves. We are so excited to announce Creekwood's commitment to become a Stephen Ministry congregation over the next nine months.

    Our Stephen Ministry will be led by Susan and Carey Pharr and Associate Pastor John Thornton, all of whom completed an extensive leader's training course this past summer. Our goal is to have at least 10 commissioned ministers in place over the next two years. In order to be most effective, Stephen Ministers undergo 50 hours of training where they learn to provide high-quality care to individuals experiencing a crises or challenge such as divorce, grief, loss of a job, hospitalization, relocation, or loneliness. Creekwood's training will take place on Monday evenings, beginning in October 2015, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

    Do you feel a calling to join this important program? We ask that you begin to pray about becoming a Stephen Minister and we encourage you to visit with Associate Pastor John ThorntonSusan or Carey. You can read more about the program at: Applications for the ministry will be available online and at the welcome desk beginning Sunday, September 6, 2015. The deadline for submission is Sunday, September 20, 2015. Applicants will be interviewed. Training will begin Monday, October 19, 2015. There is a significant time commitment for Stephen Ministry, but the rewards are substantial.

    We look forward to hearing from you with any questions you may have and feel so blessed to have the opportunity to bring Stephen Ministry to Creekwood.

    "Bear one another's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ."
    Galatians 6:2.
