Stephen Ministry

In Galatians Chapter 6, Paul tells us to “carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”


Stephen Ministry is for you – yes you. We are trained lay ministers who desire to be there with you during the tough times in life. We are not counselors or therapists. Instead we are caring friends who can offer a listening ear and join you through a difficult period in your life. Stephen Ministers are trained and supervised in their ministry. If you could use a caring friend, we are here for you. Feel free to contact one of our Stephen Leaders: Lynda Lagan (814-449-3946) or Rev. Connie Hoeke (412-400-6898) and we will be there to help you find who and what you need. All conversations with Stephen Ministers and Stephen Leaders are held in the strictest confidence.
