Your Stephen Ministry team has been busy these past few months. We were pleased to host a Stephen Ministry Information Workshop on April 16th with Henrietta Rubeiro, from the Stephen Ministry office in St. Louis, as workshop leader. She offered helpful information to our church members and members from area churches. We had a great turnout - 66 attendees, representing 17 local churches.
The workshop was filled with information on how Stephen Ministry got started, how vital this ministry is to churches and their pastors, how anyone interested in being a part of this ministry can get involved, and more. Thank you to all who helped to make this event such a success.
We also led Sunday worship with a Shalom Service on June 26, sharing our own stories of loss and grief and how we each found hope in Christ. Looking ahead; we have folks interested in becoming Stephen Ministers here at CPCBA, so we are planning to offer a training session this fall - a 50 hour program that will take place over the course of several weeks. If you want to get involved or have any questions, please contact us.
We are excited about the success and strength of our Stephen Ministry program here at CPCBA and we look forward to the future of this vital one-on-one Christian ministry. We hope that you will join us.
Thank you for your support and prayers, CPCBA Stephen Leader/Ministry Team
