Stephen Ministry

The mission

The Mission Statement of FBCV Stephen Ministry is to, with the help of the Holy Spirit, equip God's people, by providing a one-to-one confidential distinctive Christian care to those in the congregation and community who are experiencing a crisis or going through a difficult time while introducing the saveing knowledge of Jesus Christ to those who have not received Him.


"Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ" -Galatians 6:2!

There are times when every one of us experiences difficulties

  • Loss of loved one
  • Hospitalization
  • Spiritual Crisis
  • Divorce

  • Job Loss
  • Disability
  • Loneliness
  • Cancer

  • Imprisonment
  • Infertility
  • Discouragement
  • Other challenges

God never intended for us to go through these experiences alone. That's why God has brought us together as a congregation - and why we have Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministers are members of our congregation who have received 50 hours fo training to minster to people experiencing a crisis or going through a difficult time in life.

Every week, a Stephen Minister will meet with you -- privately and confidentially -- to listen, care, encourage, support, and reflect Christ's presence in your life.

If you'd like to learn more about Stephen Ministry for yourself or someone else (inside or outside our congregation), contact a pastor or Stephen Leader.
