Stephen Ministers have a passion for helping people who need care. Jesus had deep compassion for those who were like sheep without a shephard (Matthew 9:36)---people left reeling from the blow of death, illness, or tragedy; people who thought they were beyond the reach of God's healing love. Jesus reached out to them, touched them, healed and helped them.
This same passion to be with people in their need---what we call compassion---is a fire that burns bright in the hearts of Stephen Ministers. Nothing brings them greater joy than seeing that people in tough circumstances receive care from a Stephen Minister. Do you place a high value on seeking out hurting people and helping them to receive care in Jesus' name or are you one who needs help?
