We are a Stephen Ministry Congregation
More than 11,000 congregations are enrolled in the Stephen Series training. They represent more than 160 different Christian denominations and come from all 50 states, 10 Canadian provinces, and 24 other countries. More than 65,000 pastors, church staff, and lay people have been trained as Stephen Leaders and they have trained more than 600,000 congregation members to be Stephen Ministers.
On December 18, 2016, we commissioned thirteen women and men from Ocala West United Methodist Church in our first class of Stephen Ministers. Our Stephen Ministers engage in twice-monthly supervision and continuing education to ensure that we offer the best-quality Christian care.
