Care Team

A BeFrienders Ministry

  • When someone feeling alone and isolated experiences a caring connection;

  • When someone with an aging parent suffering from dementia can share their story with a listening presence; 

  • When a patient with a life-threatening illness can talk about their fears to a caring ear; 

  • when an abused woman finds comfort in safely telling her story to a nonjudgmental listener;


That is the gift of BeFriender Ministry!


A BeFriender is someone who listens with compassion, accepts people as they are, respects another’s spiritual journey, and embodies the caring presence of God. BeFrienders provide pastoral care for people in all kinds of difficult and transitional situations. They are trained volunteers who extend the care of a faith community.
