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.

Currently the Stephen Ministers are studying the book by Dr. Haugh "Cancer, Now What?".  We are near the end of the book and have found it to contain very useful information on how to minister to people with cancer.
