What is a Stephen Leader?

Pastor Jon Haug

 Director of Congregational Care

Stephen Leaders are pastors, church staff, and lay leaders who work together as a team to lead Stephen Ministry. They come from all ages and backgrounds, but they all share a common passion—bringing Christ’s love and care to hurting people.

The Stephen Series Leader’s Training Course (LTC) is an engaging week of learning, discovery, worship, relationship building, and catching a vision for all that Stephen Ministry can be for your congregation.

Listen to  Lyla Hanson describe her experience on receiving care from a Stephen Ministry, and then later becoming a Stephen Leader on the Living Stories: St. John's Podcast.

I would like to talk to a Stephen Leader...


We are attentive to God's word, prayerfully discerning God's will to do God's work with grace, in trust, by faith, through action.
