They offer courses and ministry systems to fit the needs of every congregation and adult education ministry. Lay caregivers (called Stephen Ministers) provide one-to-one Christian care to the bereaved, hospitalized, terminally ill, separated, divorced, unemployed, relocated, and others facing a crisis or life challenge. Stephen Ministry helps pastors enhance caring ministry by ensuring that quality follow-up care is available for as long as it is needed.

Bright Light Ministry
Though this ministry is not specifically for caregivers, the passion behind caregiving for a loved one is what kicked off this amazing ministry by two sisters in their twenties who witnessed the love between their grandparents, and how Alzheimer’s Disease never diminished this love. Stacie Stoelting speaks on the subject of caregiving frequently and has a book “Still Holding Hands” about her grandparent’s story.
