Stephen Ministry

Did you know that Tempe First is a Stephen Ministry church? This Christ-centered, caring ministry gives a person who is going through a crisis in their lives a care giver who they can talk with in a safe and confidential environment. Stephen Ministers are led by Cris Bass and Paul Sandilla. Care givers are available. You do not have to go through a crisis alone.

Stephen Ministry trains lay members of the church to provide short and long term support to people in need. Stephen Ministers are God’s representatives trained to work alongside our pastors to meet regularly with their care-receivers and to bring Christian love and spiritual support. Classes are held every two years to train new Stephen Ministers.

If you feel that you need the help of a Stephen Minister, or if you feel called to become involved as a caregiver, please contact the church office.
