What Happens When You Ask for Help from a Stephen Minister? When you ask for help from a Stephen Minister, a Stephen Leader will contact you to talk more about Stephen Ministry and what it can mean to you. If your needs can be best served by a Stephen Minister, you will be matched with someone who will support you through this tough time. Confidentiality is a top priority for Stephen Ministers. You do not need to be concerned that other people will discover what you talk about with your Stephen Minister. On November 18th Our Savior’s will commission 15 Stephen Ministers who will have completed 50 hours of training for this special ministry. If you are going through a tough time and could use a caring friend, please talk with or send an email to our Parish Nurse, Stacy Meyer (firstname.lastname@example.org) or with Becky Maier (email@example.com), who are the Stephen Minister leaders here at Our Savior’s. They would very much like to talk with you.
