Stephen Ministry: Looking for a Faithful Friend?
Stephen Ministry at UPC
What kind of man would use the resources of Stephen Ministry? A man like Peter who found himself in over his head and needed the strong hand of a faithful friend. If you are needing the ear of a faithful and confidential friend, please contact Elizabeth Michael, UPC’s Interim Associate Pastor, at (919) 929-2102 or email@example.com or visit upcch.org/stephen-ministry to learn more about Stephen Ministry at UPC.
Our Stephen Ministers are trained caregivers, ready to listen, care for, and encourage you; pray with and for you; and provide one-to-one Christian care to help you through whatever it is that you are facing. Men are matched with male Stephen Ministers, and women are matched with female Stephen Ministers. It’s free. It’s confidential. And it will make a difference in your life!
