Care & Prayer

During times of joy or crisis, the Damascus Road community provides a network of care for one another. Have an immediate prayer request?

Three Levels of Care


Small Groups and Serving Teams

The first level of care is extended through your Small Group or through the Ministry/Volunteer Team on which you serve.

Congregational Care

When individual or family needs intensify, if invited, support may be provided by the second level, Congregational Care. To inquire about this level of support contact us with your Care Request. Our Care Team will link you to short-term care through our Volunteer Chaplains and related services or to on-going care through our Stephen Ministry.


Pastoral and Elder Care

The third level addresses those times in life when a severe situation occurs and only an Elder or Pastor can adequately fill the ministry care role.


To inquire about this level of support contact us.

Stephen Ministers

We will all struggle,
yet we need not struggle alone.
Christ’s love heals us.
We experience His love in a community of equipped people.

Our congregation’s Stephen Ministry equips lay-people to provide one-to-one Christian care to people in our congregation and community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives. Stephen Ministry is a confidential ministry. The identity of those receiving care and everything they discuss with a Stephen Minister remain private.
