Counseling Intern Seeks Stephen Ministry Certification

photoThis coming week, counseling intern Kaylin Vincz will be traveling to Pittsburg to seek a Stephen Ministry Certification. The Stephen Ministry is a care giving ministry that equips and empowers congregants in the church to provide Christ-centered care to people who are hurting. We are people who are well acquainted with the hardships of life, and yet we often don’t know what to do when someone we know is diagnosed with cancer or has just lost a loved one. Though our hearts desire it, we feel ill equip to move towards them. The goal of Redeemer's Stephen Ministry will be to train one man and one woman in each parish to be Stephen Ministers who move towards those who are hurting. Thank you, Kaylin for taking this step! We look forward to seeing this ministry develop.
