Become a Stephen Minister


Stephen Ministry is a big commitment. We know this. We know you are choosing to step up your game and get engaged with your spiritual life at a whole new level. We’re excited—we hope you are too.

You know the old saying that you get more than you give when you volunteer-it’s true. We can’t promise everything, but we can promise this—you will get more out of Stephen Ministry than you give. The training will stretch you. You will hone skills and develop new ways of being with people that will change your life. For good, I might add!

How do I apply to be a Stephen Minister?

Contact Beryl Schewe at or 952-929-3317 (x9035) to request an application. Once your completed application has been submitted to the Parish Office, we will then schedule an interview with you and our Stephen Leader Team.
