“Bear one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2

What is our mission statement?

The mission of Tampa Covenant Church Stephen Ministry is to serve God; extending the love of Jesus Christ to individuals in the midst of trials.

What are Stephen Ministers?

Stephen Ministers are lay congregation members called and trained to provide Christ centered, confidential, one-to-one care to people who are hurting and in crisis. They meet once a week to listen and walk alongside their Care Receiver. This relationship will last as long as needed.

What are Care Receivers?

Care Receivers are a member of the congregation or the community who receives care from a Stephen Minister. Care Receivers are people struggling through a difficult time in life experiencing grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, or some other life crisis.

How can I arrange to have a Stephen Minister?

Contact the church office at 813-968-2979 to speak to one of the Pastors or to our Referrals Coordinator, Jayne Masters.
