Stephen Ministry @ UUMC

Compassionate, Trustworthy, Full of Faith


Join us on Sunday September 11 at 11:00am in Education Building Room D for an information lunch about our new Stephen Ministry program at University United Methodist Church!


These adjectives make up the Stephen Ministry's Caregiving Compass. We use this compass to guide our high quality care for hurting people. As our congregation builds a Stephen Ministry of our own we are asking you to consider these adjectives and whether they apply to you. An application is available here if you are interested interviewing to become a Stephen Minister. Once selected as a candidate, your 50-hour training will commence.  Pastor Paige and Barb Doherty will provide that training and ongoing support for your caring relationship through a precisely formulated program that has been successful in congregations in Orange County and across the country for over 30 years. If your calling lies elsewhere, please consider praying for our Stephen Ministry, Pastor Paige and Barb Doherty as Stephen Leaders, and our first class of Stephen Ministers. 


Questions?  Stephen Ministry Leader Barb Doherty is available by e-mail:  Barb Doherty
