Have you been blessed by your involvement with one of our ministries? Have you experienced Christ's love through the compassion of someone who took the time to care for you in an hour of need? If so, you can pass that blessing on to others by helping to ensure that future generations will also be able to experience the life-changing power of our much-needed ministries.
For the story of the Stephen Ministries organization--who we are, how we began, and the vision God has set before us, please see our Mission and Ministry and History pages. It will help you see how God has blessed and continues to work through Stephen Ministries to transform lives and strengthen congregations. The story of Stephen Ministries is still unfolding--and you can be part of it through your generous gifts, will, or estate planning. There are several ways you can help perpetuate this ministry for future generations.
Stephen Ministries has been blessed in recent years to be the recipient of several gifts that were the result of caring estate planning. When this happens, Stephen Ministries, congregations, and the donor all benefit.
These gifts provide financial stability for Stephen Ministries, which in turn enables Stephen Ministries to strengthen and expand our efforts to support Stephen Ministry and ChristCare Group Ministry congregations worldwide as they love and care for others in the name of Jesus.
The benefits for the donor are tax savings (sometimes even prior to death) and the satisfaction of knowing that one's assets are able to facilitate meaningful Christian ministry. Learn more about the benefits of planned giving.
As you or others in your congregation engage in estate planning, we welcome the opportunity to talk with you about the gift options that are available. Please call our office at (314) 428-2600. All inquiries are confidential and without obligation.
