Compassionate – Full of Faith – Skilled – Trustworthy
These are some of the words that describe our Stephen Ministers.
We are please to announce that with The Highland Park Reformed Church we began training eight people to become Stephen Ministers. Three of the people are from our church, two of the people are taking the course to refresh their skills. This is the third time that we have been able to share the training with the Highland Park Reformed. We have found that training with another church allows for a more diverse and robust training.
Due to COVID the training is taking place on ZOOM. The training will finish by May 22. It includes pre-class learning, role plays and lectures. After the Stephen Ministers have finished their 50 hours of training, they will be commissioned to serve in their respective churches.
This week the focus is on “Distinctively Christian Caring”, and how to speak the truth in love as an assertive Christian.
Each week I will update the progress on the training of the Stephen Ministers.
