For people going through a difficult time, sometimes having a friend with them to share the burden is a gift indeed. Stephen Ministry provides trained compassionate Christian care, and has been part of Our Savior’s Caring Ministry program since 1988, when Stephen Ministries began. Since then, OSL has trained over 350 of its own Stephen Ministers, and currently has over 30 active Stephen Ministers serving within the congregation.

Here, OSL member Jim Green shares his experience as a recipient of a Stephen Minister’s care and friendship.
