Difficulties range from dealing with an illness, losses in life including the loss of loved one, a job, break-up of a marriage or moving to assisted living facility and others. A trained volunteer Stephen Minister of the same gender visits as a confidential friend in Christ. Typically relationships last from 3 months to a year or more. Prayer may or may not be part of the weekly visits, which typically last 1 hour. Everything discussed is held in complete confidence.
