Go and Make Disciples!
STEPHEN MINISTERS
 (at the First Presbyterian Church)
 
Eleven Stephen Ministers have been trained through the 50 hour required training program and commissioned by the congregation to go forth and care for individuals with all needs, great or small.  These eleven lay ministers were called by God into this caring ministry and are ready to serve this congregation and those who come to us with cares.
 
Our certified Stephen Minister Leaders are Rev. Paul Anderson and Elder Carolyn Meinbresse who can be reached at the church at 219-736-0707.  If you would like a Stephen Minister to walk with you through a difficult period, please talk to Rev. Paul or Carolyn.

The Stephen Ministers participated in a training session on Addiction in Chesterton with Stephen Ministers from Porter County.  We are working on putting together a training session on Dementia and Alzheimers for late spring or early summer.  It would be great if we could combine with other Stephen Ministers from Lake County.
