Stephen Ministry

We are all faced with difficulties and challenges in life, and God never intended for us to go through these experiences alone. Through the Christ-centered support and formal training given to our Stephen Ministers, they are ready to offer emotional and spiritual care by walking alongside you while you experience life’s challenges. 


Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. ~ Galatians 6:2

What is Stephen Ministry?

We are all faced with difficulties and challenges in life, and God never intended for us to go through these experiences alone. Since the summer of 2013, Community Celebration Church in Kasson, has offered a cost-free, distinctively-Christian caring ministry called Stephen Ministry. Stephen Ministry equips lay people through over 50 hours of training to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to congregation members and the surrounding community who are presently experiencing difficulties and challenges in day-to-day life.
