My name is Barbara Arnold. I was in the first Stephen Ministry training class at RGPC. I was commissioned as a Stephen Minister on May 3, 2015. Stephen Ministry has been a blessing in my life. I have learned skills that have helped me with family and work relationships. I have had the privilege to be a care giver and walk along side women who were dealing with the pain of loss and illness. I have also been blessed to be a care receiver during a very dark valley in my life. I am forever grateful to God for bringing me to this ministry.
