Stephen Ministry has been explained as the After People.
Stephen Ministers are there:
• After the divorce papers are served and the bottom falls our of your life.
• After the funeral, when everyone has left and the emotions you’ve held at bay come crashing in on you.
• After the doctor says, “I’m sorry, but there is nothing more we can do.”
• After you find a pink slip with your final paycheck.
