All LaGrave adults with a desire and gift to minister to others can participate in the Stephen Ministry, a program of pastoral care in which members of LaGrave are trained to be of help to fellow members and others experiencing difficulty in their lives. It requires a two-year commitment with an initial intensive training period. It is designed to help people hone listening skills, tune in to feelings, pick up on unspoken concerns, and deal with a variety of crises. Participation in the class is by application.
The goal of the Stephen Ministry is to equip God's people for ministry so that the LaGrave congregation may practice and experience the deep caring of Christ himself.
