Stephens Ministry

       Words can never adequately convey or express the incredible impact of life’s challenges.  Each one of us experiences unique stressful situations in life – a loss of a loved one, grief over any loss (spouse, child, parent, friend, a pet, job, marriage, etc.), health issues, long-term care or end of life issues, separation or divorce, unemployment, overwhelming feelings, or struggles with faith in God.  Life can be 20% what happens to us and 80% how we respond to these challenges.


With a Stephen Minister, you no longer have to go through difficulties or crises alone.  Perhaps you just need someone who will listen, encourage, pray or share Christ’s love and maintain confidentiality.  A Stephen Minister is a well-trained, Christian individual who will walk alongside you in a confidential, one-on-one Christ-centered caring relationship for as long as necessary, providing emotional and spiritual care that is unique to your situation.


If you would like to know more about becoming a Stephen Minister, please call Kim Houseman in the Christian Service office at (248) 689-8380 Ext. 112 or email her at kim.

We are running short on Stephen Ministers and we need more ministers in training, to keep up with the demand at St. Anastasia.
