At Johns Creek United Methodist Church, caring for the congregation and the community is a vital part of what it means to "love your neighbor as yourself." Every disciple of Jesus Christ is to love their neighbor. The church believes that the care and support of a loving community is crucial in equipping people to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. It is essential to first BE disciples.

Johns Creek United Methodist Church seeks to be and make disciples by providing opportunities to give and receive spiritual and emotional support. The Nurture ministries of JCUMC are here to help connect people to God in the midst of times of struggle, pain, loss, and disorientation.

The mission of Johns Creek United Methodist Church is to make disciples. In support of that mission, the mission of JCUMC Stephen Ministry is to provide the highest quality, one-on-one, and distinctively Christian care to members of our congregation and to the community who are experiencing a crisis in their life. JCUMC Stephen Ministry will work with the clergy, the church staff and the church’s other ministries to provide care for God’s people.

The name Stephen comes from Saint Stephen, who was the first lay person commissioned by the apostles to provide caring ministry to those in need (as recorded in Acts 6).

Career Network

Job Seekers and Career Changers can receive help from JCUMC Career Network. All aspects of life are impacted by job loss. At the same time, this transition creates a profound opportunity to find or renew faith in God. It is for these reasons that the Career Network Ministry was restarted 5 years ago for JCUMC members as well as for those in the community seeking career transition assistance.
