A Stephen Ministry congregation equips and empowers lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting. To become a Stephen Minister there is 40 hours of intense training. The Stephen Ministry Team includes Trudy Hall, Vicki Hosmer, Patty Kiegler, Kristine Klingensmith, Don Muenzmay, Genny Rempelakis, and Co-Pastors Bruce and Karen Wismer and the Rev. Bill Green also serve on the team. If you have any questions about care giving or care receiving, please call Kristine Nickel Klingensmith at 941 918-0016.
