As followers of Christ, we are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus…but what does that really look like? For me, that has come from my experience as a Stephen Minister here at Trinity.
Stephen Ministry is an incredible ministry where I have the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus with another person. I walk with them through a difficult time in their life and end up receiving many blessings myself. Getting to know another person and making a difference in their life is a special gift not only to the one receiving care, but to the caregiver as well. I've had several care receivers and each one has had unique issues; and together we have searched for Jesus in the midst of life's trials.
My biggest regret is that Stephen's Ministry wasn't available when I experienced hardships in my life, including divorce and depression. Life is sometimes really hard; and having someone who will listen, be a sounding board, and most importantly pray, pray, pray, is so helpful. The confidentiality brings a peace in knowing that you can "spill your guts" and not have it shared throughout the church and community.
