Stephen Ministry

We are a Stephen Ministry Church

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. 

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.
