We seek to make Jesus known to others and help them flourish through our caring ministries by being present, listening, helping others think through issues, and offering prayer and encouragement.
Our 16 ordained deacons have ongoing relationships their assigned flocks, made up of individuals and families who regularly attend CPC. Deacons contact and pray for their flocks on a regular and ongoing basis. They’re also available to visit you or assist you with physical, spiritual, and emotional needs at turning points such as . . .
- Injury or hospitalization
- Death of a loved one (including arranging services at CPC)
- Transition (like moving in or out of the area)
If you don’t know who your deacon is or would like to be assigned one, please email email@example.com for assistance.
CPC’s Stephen Ministry is a one-on-one, distinctively Christian, confidential caring ministry with Jesus Christ in the center. Stephen Ministers are congregation members who have received at least 50 hours of training in how to provide high-quality spiritual and emotional care to people experiencing a variety of life’s transitions, especially the difficult ones, such as . . .
- Job or other loss
- Chronic or terminal illness
- Stress from caring for a newborn or aging parent
- Becoming an “empty-nester”
- Separation due to military deployment

Care is gender-matched. Stephen Ministers usually meet with their care receivers weekly or biweekly for about an hour—meeting regularly for as long as need. If you’re interested in receiving care or becoming a Stephen Minister, contact one of our Stephen Leaders:
Pastoral Counseling & Referrals
Our pastors are also available to provide short-term pastoral counseling to you and your family. They can also refer you to licensed mental health professionals who are themselves Christian or who offer expressly Christian counseling. Contact one of our pastors directly: Aaron, or Chris.
