Bozeman United Methodist Church is part  of the Stephens Series system of lay caring ministry, developed  by Stephen Ministries, a nonprofit religious and educational organization based in St. Louis, Missouri.  Stephen Ministers have completed 50 hours of training and are ready to care for others in a confidential, one-on-one Christian based approach to those attending our church as well as individuals in the community who are facing life challenges. Examples of life events that a Stephens Minister may be helpful are: hospitalization, loss of a loved one, loneliness, divorce, unemployment, birth of a child, and many other life challenges …
 
When the Crisis Never Ends. Many people face a tough time every day of their lives. Whether caring for a sick family member, going through a long period of unemployment, or experiencing incurable pain, they are their families can benefit from the support and care of a Stephen Minister.
 
Divorce, Death in the Family, Losing a Job… Crisis can be overwhelming. A Stephen Minister is ready and willing to care for you or a friend during difficult times like these.
 
When You’ve Reached the End of Your Rope… if you are at the end of your rope, Stephen Ministers can help tie a knot and hang on. For someone who will listen and help you find the resources you need to get through this tough time.
