What is a Conference Team Member?
We arrive at the training course site several days before the participants and help transform the big empty rooms into an office, a resource center, and a meeting room where hundreds of
people have a profound experience of learning, spiritual growth, and Christian community."
—Jeri Simpkins, Houston, Texas
"We are the face of Stephen Ministries. We meet participants from around the country and interact with them in the conference office, resource center, and meeting room throughout the week." —Ellie VanDyke, Holland, Michigan

What kind of commitment is required?
If assisting our team at training courses is a ministry that you and your spouse would want to commit to—something you feel comfortable doing three or four times a year—consider applying.
Here's what the steps in the process would look like:
- Phone interview. We will interview you and your spouse over the phone, giving you the opportunity to ask questions about what it means to serve as a Conference Team Member.
- Invitation to training. If you and we feel you might be a good fit for this ministry role, we will invite both of you to one of our conferences to train. You’ll experience both the hard work and the great joys of volunteering at a conference.
- Give it a go. Your initial training conference will give you an opportunity to test drive this ministry role, without commitment on your or our part. If it is not for you, we can agree to stop the process, minimizing your time investment or any possible disappointment. For most folks, though, it is a great time working together with our committed staff and the eager and dedicated participants.
- Welcome to the team. Once you are trained and we are satisfied that this will work out well for you and for us, we will work with you to schedule you to serve at three or more conferences per year.
