Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry Logo

The Villages Community Chapel has an active and enthusiastic Stephen Ministry Program that assists our two pastors in helping to minister to the needs of the congregation.  Stephen Ministers are highly trained and skilled lay volunteers who come alongside and walk with hurting members of our community and Chapel.  We currently have eleven Stephen Ministers, both men and women,  and three Stephen Leaders and the program has been in existence since December of 2012.

Stephen Ministers are carefully matched with care receivers and provide a continuity of care by visiting on a weekly basis and sharing their care receiver's burdens.  Visits are usually about an hour in length, are always confidential, and are free. 

We encourage referrals of those who might be in need.  You may call for yourself or perhaps a neighbor or friend who seems to be going through an especially difficult time.  Just call the Chapel Office at 408  238-3079 and ask to speak to Lucinda.
