We are a Stephen Ministry Church!
East Cobb UMC is proud to be a Stephen Ministry Congregation. Our expertly trained Stephen Ministers are available to walk with individuals through times of crisis, challenge, loss, and uncertainty.
A Stephen Minister is available at the close of every service in the Parlor.
What is Stephen Ministry?
A Stephen Minister is someone who walks alongside one who is hurting. A Stephen Minister is someone who will listen, care, and support you through a difficult time, keeping all discussions completely confidential.
Stephen Ministry can be a wonderful resource for those experiencing difficult situations, including loneliness, isolation, hospitalization, illness, loss of a loved one, divorce, grief, employment changes, childbirth, questions about faith, and more.
How to request?
To learn more or to request a Stephen Minister, please contact the Church Office at (770) 971-3643, or send an email to Rev. Kristin Lee at Kristin@eastcobbumc.org to discuss and begin the referral process.
Who can request?
A friend or family member may request a Stephen Minister on someone else’s behalf, but only with their explicit permission. Only the pastor, Referral Coordinator, Stephen Minister, and referred person will know if a Stephen Minister has been assigned.
