This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
In John 15:12, Jesus says, “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” Loving and caring for one another is not just the pastor’s job — it’s something Jesus calls us all to do! Stephen Ministry is a ministry in which people with special gifts for caring ministry can put those gifts to use in an organized way, bringing Jesus’ love and care to those who most need it.
Do you have a friend, neighbor, co-worker, or relative at Wellshire who has been struggling with the loss of a loved one, loneliness, cancer, a layoff, relocation, divorce, a spiritual crisis, recuperating, single parenthood or any of countless other life challenges? Stephen Ministers can provide them with the focused care, encouragement and support they need to make it through the crisis.
If you know of someone who is hurting, you can leave a voicemail message at 303-758-2233, ext. 251, or send an email to Wellshire’s Stephen Ministry Program. Your message is confidential and will only be received by one of the trained Stephen Ministry Leaders. They can talk with you about how to connect the person you know with one of our Stephen Ministers. It’s a great way for you to show how much you care. Conversation with a Stephen Minister is confidential; during supervision, all care receivers are discussed without the use of any names.
