Paxton Church has been a Stephen Ministry congregation since 2008. Stephen Ministry trains and oversees the work of lay care-givers who provide one-on-one Christian care to those experiencing loss, illness, or other challenging circumstances. At present, Paxton has four Stephen Leaders and fourteen currently serving Stephen Ministers. Stephen Ministers visit their care-receivers regularly, offering spiritual support and helping them develop practical strategies to cope with their situations. Stephen Ministers listen non-judgmentally and uphold a pledge of confidentiality.
