Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministers are members of Mountain View Presbyterian Church who have been through extensive training. They provide confidential one-to-one Christian care to people who are experiencing a crisis, facing a challenge, or simply going through a tough time.

Our church is one of more than 10,000 Stephen Ministry congregations worldwide. Since 1975 more than half a million Stephen Ministers have been trained, providing care to more than two million people in need.
