Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2, NRSV).
Christ Caring for People through People
Varsity Acres Presbyterian Church is a Stephen Ministry congregation. Stephen Ministry is a pastoral care program that equips lay people (Stephen Ministers) to provide Christian one-to-one care to those who are experiencing stressful circumstances. All Stephen Ministers receive 50 hours of training and participate in ongoing peer supervision and continuing education.
Stephen Ministers usually meet with their care receivers once a week for about an hour. The times together continue for as as many weeks as the care receiver will benefit from the relationship. Stephen Ministers listen, understand, accept, and pray for, and with, care receivers who are working through a crisis or a tough time.
