Everyone goes through tough times at some point in life - a death in the family, prolonged illness, divorce, unemployment. Even less traumatic events, such as a move or other significant life transitions can trigger the need for someone to come alongside and walk with you through the difficulty. A Stephen Minister is trained to do just that - to walk with someone going through a difficult time. UPC has Stephen Ministers who are trained to provide effective Christian care to others, along with Stephen Leader Mike Osborne.
The UPC Counseling Ministry exists to shine the light of the gospel into all the places of our lives. UPC offers a counseling ministry because we believe that the gospel is a vibrant, healing force that can and should be applied to our life, relationships, thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
