For counseling, Mount Pisgah has a wonderful Stephen Ministry. The Stephen Ministry is a one-on-one, confidential ministry focused on listening, caring, and providing support during life’s challenges. When you need someone that is not quite as close to the situation you are in, a Stephen Minister can be there as a third party that will listen with no judgment toward you, your situation, or others involved in your situation. You meet with your Stephen Minister once a week for an hour. Stephen Ministers are placed with a care receiver of the same gender and you are your Stephen Minister’s only care receiver. Care receivers may be going through challenges such as:

 

  • Divorce

  • Terminal illness

  • Loneliness

  • Terminal illness of a loved one

  • Spiritual confusion or frustration

  • Caregiving

  • Empty nest adjustments

  • Forgiveness issues

  • New baby

  • Grieving

  • Death of someone close

  • Loss of pregnancy

  • Illness

  • The list could go on…
