Stephen Ministry is a one-to-one, confidential ministry that provides Christian care to those who are experiencing loss/grief, loneliness, crisis, or challenging situations such as chronic illness, unemployment, divorce and countless others. Stephen Ministers are highly-trained lay people who meet with their care recipient once a week to listen, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support.


Our compassionate visitation team visits and prays with shut-ins and residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities. They also send cards to the elderly for birthdays and holidays. To share a need, or to inquire about volunteering, please contact Dianne Wagner at 765-453-7078 or dianne@kokomonaz.org.


Parish Nursing is a congregational health ministry that promotes wellness of body, mind and spirit. Chris Gilbody, Amy Dotson and Nancy Ringeisen are state-licensed registered nurses who share their healthcare expertise and faith. They offer free blood pressure and blood sugar checks every Sunday and sponsor educational programs throughout the year. They also provide resources, make referrals and give healthcare counsel. The nurse’s office (Room #301, next to the Welcome Center) is open between services, from 10:15 to 10:45 a.m., every Sunday, or by appointment. Services and programs are typically free. For more information, contact Chris at gilbodyce@aol.com or 765-461-8139.


Help is available — whether you are coping with trauma, struggling in a relationship, or fighting a spiritual battle or addiction. Our pastors provide biblical counseling, free of charge, to couples, families and individuals. Sessions are strictly confidential. When necessary, referrals will be made to licensed Christian therapists in the Kokomo-area. Call the church office at 765-453-7078 to schedule an appointment.


First Nazarene partners with Preserve Marriage Ministries, a non-profit organization that exists “to strengthen and preserve covenant marriages as God has purposed.” PMM serves as a marriage resource for churches by offering needs assessments, counseling, marital retreats, and more.


Members of Dare-to-Care meet weekly to send out cards to first-time guests, people who are celebrating birthdays and anniversaries, and people who are ill or mourning a loss. They also assemble gift bags for guests, available at the welcome center.
