Lay Caregiving

Stephen Ministry is a program that equips lay persons to provide distinctively Christian one-to-one care to those who are experiencing all kinds of life needs and circumstances, both in our congregation and community. Stephen Ministers care for people who are experiencing grief, divorce, job loss, terminal illness, loneliness, spiritual crisis, hospitalization, relocation and other life difficulties.

Stephen Leaders match each Stephen Minister to a person in need of care. Men are matched with men, women with women. Caring relationships last for as long as the person needs this level of care.

There is no fee for these services. Contact the church office (661) 665-7815 for more information.



Elders are the spiritual support and accountability team to, and extension of, the Pastoral office of St. John's.
