Noteworthy: From CEO/President Mark Zander

Ted Pittenger, our Founder and Chairman of the Board, has been a cornerstone of the ministry for 27 years. As we transition roles, it was essential for Ted to leave Samaritan Ministries with a purpose statement that reflected his founding beliefs for why he created Samaritan Ministries. He and associate Ray King teamed up to do just that—and I love the results! I believe it was a Spirit-led reflection of why God created Samaritan.

“Our purpose is to glorify God by growing and equipping disciples of Jesus Christ to love God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength and to love and care for their neighbor as themselves” (Matthew 28:18-20, Mark 12:28-30, Matthew 22:36-40).

Going forward, this purpose statement will guide everything we do! Loving Jesus. Loving and caring for members. Enabling members to love and care for one another through difficult health care burdens.

Please join us in prayer that our God, the Great Provider, will strengthen our ministry, sharing Jesus’ love and hope to a hurting and burdened world.
