Stephen Ministry is a listening ministry made up of trained lay care-givers. Their role is to listen and care – not to give advice or counsel. They provide free, quality, one-to-one Christian care including: crisis care, follow-up care, chronic care, preventative care and supportive care. Stephen Ministers listen, understand, accept, and pray for you as you go through a struggle or life challenge. In the Geneva region these life challenges include separation/divorce, depression, loss, loneliness and those with serious illness. There are 20 topics covered by the course which are provided at the link below.
Due to Covid-19 this year’s training will take place online using Zoom. Registered participants will receive Zoom information at a later stage. Starting Thursday, 30th September 2021 and running until March 2022. Training commences at 7.00pm sharp until 9.00pm. A contribution of CHF 150 is requested per person (which covers materials, freight, taxes, online license, etc.). If needed the contribution can be spread to avoid any hardship.
