God never intended us to go through difficult times alone. He gave us Jesus and the Holy Spirit to lean on in times of need. He gave us the ability to form relationships and connections with family, friends, specially educated people like our pastors, psychologists, psychologists and so many others. Stephen Ministers are among those special people.
MVPC has Stephen Ministers available to talk with you. Stephen Ministers are trained to help you through challenging times that may be filled with stress, anxiety, and loneliness. A Stephen Minister is a caring Christian friend who provides emotional and spiritual support.
We are here for you! If you would like a Stephen Minister to reach out to you or if you are interested in becoming a Stephen Minister, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the MVPC office at 702-341-7800.
