Stephen Ministry
Stephen Ministry at Desert Palms A Ministry of Compassion and Caring

A Ministry of Caring

When the cares of my heart are many,

 your comfort gives me renewed hope and cheer.  (Psalm 94:19)


A Stephen Minister may be able to provide you comfort and hope in times of despair. It is a ministry of presence and companionship which equips church members to provide effective care to those who are going through a difficult time such as grief, health concerns, divorce, and other life transitions. It is quiet, confidential, and compassionate.


For more information, please contact any of our Stephen Ministry Leaders: Suzanne Burke, Kathe Cochrane, Jan Ettele, Nora Timson, Carole Jean Soine, or Pastor Linda.


This month we commissioned a new class of Stephen Ministers who have completed 50 hours of training: John Chattin, Jody Presley, Sandy Warmuth and Nancy Zaitlen. Be sure to congratulate them when you see them and hold them in prayer as they begin their service as Stephen Ministers.
