Your presence is worth much, much more than words. Your presence communicates to the other that he or she is valued, precious, beloved.
Your presence brings not only the gift of yourself into the relationship, but also, in and through you, the gift of God.

 -Kenneth Hougk, founder of Stephen Ministry in Don't Sing Songs to a Heavy Heart

Equipping God’s People for Ministry since 1975
