Reaching Out To Men Carrying a Burden

Oftentimes men feel like they must be the strong one who carries the burden.  Do you have no one to turn to, to share the burden?  Is life sometimes more than you can handle, are you going through a job loss, marital issues, serious illness, or other crises in your life?  Call the church office at 904.268.5549 and ask to be put in contact with the Stephen Minister Referrals Coordinator.  Conversations and identities are confidential.

Our trained Stephen Ministers are here to meet the needs of those who are dealing with:

  • Illness,
  • Loneliness,
  • Loss of a loved one,
  • Spiritual crisis,
  • Loss of a job, or
  • Other needs.
