Oak Park UMC Stephen Ministry
Stephen Ministry at Oak Park United Methodist Church exists to serve God by bringing Christ’s healing love to individuals who are experiencing life’s challenges and difficulties.
To Know Jesus and each other through a one-on-one lay ministry to bear one another’s burdens; To Grow to be like Him as a refuge for the hurting; And to Go into our community showing His love in word and deed by Christian caregiving.
We value high-quality, confidential, and distinctively Christian lay ministry. We demonstrate this value by preparing God’s people for works of service through Stephen Ministry.
We value our Church, My School and our community and want them to experience the love of Christ, especially when they are hurting, troubled, or in need. We demonstrate this value by ministering to people through Stephen Ministry.
