While anyone within the Trinity community may receive counsel from one of our staff pastors, we acknowledge there are also laypersons with a sense of calling to provide one-to-one care to those in need. Our caregivers have undertaken training through Stephen Ministries, a well-established not-for-profit organization that exists to equip laypersons for the purpose of providing care both in and around the local church setting. After undergoing an initial period of training, caregivers participate in classes and supervision groups throughout the period of their tenure.
This level of care is not intended to replace either the counsel of pastors or professional therapists, though in some instances it may supplement such counsel.
Areas in which our caregivers are able to serve are diverse. They include, but are not limited to: hospitalization, divorce, grief/bereavement, unemployment, chronic illness or disability, retirement, empty nest, homebound.
If you, or anyone known to you within the Trinity community, might benefit from this level of care, please contact Gareth Allcott, who will then initiate a process for connecting care receivers and caregivers.
If you have a need we want to join you in prayer. Please use the form below to let us know. This request will be prayed for by trusted people on our prayer teams. We believe there is a benefit to making your needs known and having collective prayer happening within the community. This service is for those who would call Trinity “home”.
