The Stephen Ministry provides high quality, confidential, Christ-centered care and support to people experiencing grief, divorce, illness, job loss, loneliness, disability, relocation, and other life difficulties.

  Since 1975, the Stephen Ministries organization, based in St. Louis, Missouri, has helped more than 11,000 congregations implement Stephen Ministry.  Stephen Ministry at Emory is being led by our trained Stephen Leaders Team of Ann London, Jonathan Green, Marcia Mendenhall and Phillip Harmon.
