The Stephen Series Leader’s Manual is the primary resource that Stephen Leaders (the pastors and lay leaders who attend a Leader’s Training Course) use to direct their Stephen Ministry. More than a manual, it is a collection of more than 400 easily accessible documents organized into 67 color-coded file folders.
The Leader’s Manual contains step-by-step help for every facet of Stephen Ministry, detailed lesson plans and presentations to train Stephen Ministers, newsletter articles, sermons, forms, and a complete system for beginning and managing Stephen Ministry in the congregation. The user-friendly format puts all the information Stephen Leaders need right at their fingertips, making their ministry as straightforward, efficient, and enjoyable as possible.
Each Leader’s Manual also includes a copy of:
the Stephen Ministry Training Manual, one of the key resources used in Stephen Minister training; and
the Supervision Group Facilitator Manual, used to train Stephen Leaders or Stephen Ministers to lead Supervision Groups.
For each training presentation, the Leader’s Manual provides a detailed lesson plan, preparation aids, and scripted information—everything a Stephen Leader needs to train Stephen Ministers effectively.
