Tess Wilfong & Elaine Berry
Named for St. Stephen, who was commissioned by the apostles to care for widows in Jerusalem, this ministry provides pastoral care to those experiencing some kind of loss in their lives.
Whether they have lost a loved one, a job, their health, or a significant relationship, Stephen’s ministers offer a listening ear and encouragement in the Lord on a one to one basis. A special series of training sessions is offered by several parishioners who have been through an intense training program that enables them to train others for this ministry. This is a new ministry at the Church of the Resurrection, and training will begin in a few months.
