For over 45 years, we’ve offered high-quality resources that have equipped millions of people to care for those who are going through difficult times—and we are continuing to grow.

Stephen Ministries hires people, not positions—meaning that we don’t just look for people to fit preset roles, but work to identify each individual’s gifts, talents, and skills and build a position with them. One of our core values is to maintain a positive work environment, which allows our staff to thrive as they engage in work that makes a big impact in the lives of the people we serve.
