With the many ways COVID-19 has impacted the world, congregations everywhere are seeing an even greater need for Stephen Ministry, and Stephen Leaders are seeking to add more Stephen Ministers to their teams to help with these increased needs for care.
The two resources on this page can help you recruit Stephen Ministers, both during the pandemic and after the crisis has passed.
This webpage introduces the role of a Stephen Minister, the training they receive, and the benefits they experience through serving in this ministry. Featuring a brand-new video of people sharing about how they grew personally, professionally, and spiritually through Stephen Minister training, it’s a great resource to share with congregation members who might make good Stephen Ministers.
This resource offers ideas for ways you can connect with potential Stephen Ministers in your congregation. Its broad strategies, specific insights, and helpful tips will help your Stephen Leader Team successfully identify, communicate with, and recruit new Stephen Ministers. Available as a downloadable PDF or webpage.
You may also find it helpful to review the new and updated resources in Leader’s Manual folder S-2A, “Recruiting Stephen Ministers,” and on the Stephen Leader Online Toolkit for ideas.
