50-hours of training is provided to Stephen Ministers before they are commissioned and is critical in preparing them to bring Christ’s love to their Care Receivers. Strategic lessons include how to let God be the Cure Giver as well as modules on Listening, Confidentiality, Assertiveness, and other important topics. Twice a month, at Supervision meetings, Stephen Ministers meet in small groups to help one another continue to grow as caregivers. Once a month, during Supervision, a relevant continuing education topic is presented and this month “Boundaries in Caregiving” was presented by Sandy Turner, former Stephen Leader, and Crystal Harris from Mercy Hospice House at Centura Health. We are blessed to serve the Lord and grateful for on-going trainings that strengthen this ministry. For more information, please contact Cathy Schadt at (970) 259-9293.
