Our congregation's Stephen Ministry equips lay people to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to individuals in our congregation and community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives.

RLC has 14 active Stephen Ministers ready to support you, or someone you know, during a difficult time. All have received 50 hours of training in order to minister to people experiencing a crisis, facing a challenge, or simply going through a tough time. A Stephen Minister listens, cares, encourages, supports, and reminds you of God's presence in your life. This caring ministry is confidential, free, and very helpful. If you would like to learn more or make a referral, talk with the Pastor or one of the Stephen Leaders.

Contact the Church office 972-867-0406 if you feel you have a need of a Stephen Minister or if you would like to become a Stephen Minister. If you would like to know more about the training, please contact Kim Trigg.
