How does the referrals process work at St. John’s?

  • A person - either you, a relative, or a friend - is hurting and in need of Christian care.
  • The Stephen Ministry Referrals Coordinator learns about this need for care - from the pastor, the person, or a friend, always with the person's permission.
  • The Referrals Coordinator meets with the person to talk about Stephen Ministry.
  • With the person's permission, the Referrals Coordinator assigns a Stephen Minister to meet on a weekly basis with the person.
  • The Stephen Minister continues to provide distinctively Christian care for the person with strict confidentiality.
  • Our referrals coordinator is Pastor Rett - 803-327-3113


    To submit prayer requests for our Prayer Chain, please email them directly to If you are committed to the sacred responsibility of praying for others in need, please subscribe to the St. John’s Prayer Chain by sending an email to with the subject “I will pray for others.”
