MAPS Event – Bravo, Bravissimo! – Jonathan Hays

Hometown favorite Jonathan Hays presents a captivating recital with the beautiful singing we have all come to know and love. The New York Times said of Jonathan: “the nobility of his voice matched the nobility of his bearing and his singing was consistently strong, lucid, direct and bang on the note. His was a magnificent performance,” and Opera Magazine stated “he has a lovely baritone, nicely placed and warmly resonant but capable of taut edginess.” He will be joined by pianist Brett A. Terry. A reception will follow the concert.

Life-Changing Experiences from Stephen Ministry Worldwide

Stephen Ministry is one of the greatest things I have ever become involved in. I’ve learned to be much more comfortable in a one-on-one relationship — where I listen to the other person, get to know them, understand what they’re going through, and love them like Christ wants me to love them.

I encourage other men to get involved. The training is wonderful, and being a Stephen Minister is going to help you. It’s been a blessing for me as much as it has for my care receiver. I’m extremely happy that I became a Stephen Minister.

“A blessing
for me too”

“Seeing the true love of Jesus”

My church is an international community, made up of expatriates who have moved here (Shanghai, China) from all over the world. Many have been uprooted and are in a strange culture, cut off from family. Many people come to our church—even people who never went to church before—in need of care. Stephen Ministers provide a lot of that care.

Stephen Ministry is also a tool we use in evangelism. When a seeker has a need, and a Stephen Minister is there dedicating time and effort and attention to them, it helps them see the true love of God and changes their view of what Christianity is all about.

I’m a flight instructor, so I tell people what to do a lot in the airplane. But when I’m a Stephen Minister, I don’t have to do that—my role is just to be there. And honestly, it took all fifty hours of my training to get that through my head.

I’ve had three care receivers so far. Each has been about my age, struggling with some kind of a challenge. And it really takes the pressure off to know that I don’t have to try to fix things. All I need to do is just be there—and watch God work in my care receiver’s life.

“All I need to do
is just be there”

“I now realize
that it's a gift”

I feel like I’ve been training for Stephen Ministry my whole life. I’ve always been a good listener—people have always been telling me their stories and sharing their problems. In the past, it sometimes felt like a chore. But I now realize that it’s a gift. As a Stephen Minister, I can be the person my care receiver can lean on, confide in, celebrate joys with, and also share sorrows. It makes me feel good when I’ve really helped someone.

If you have a compassionate heart and a desire to provide Christian encouragement, consider becoming a Stephen Minister. To request care from a Stephen Minister or lean more about the ministry and how you can become involved, contact the pastor, Russell Sullivan, at (717) 238-9304 or e-mail him at rsullivan@pinestreet.org.
