"A Samaritan traveler who came upn the victim was moved with compassion. He went and bandaged his wounds and lifted him to his own mount, carrying him to the inn."      Luke 10:25-37


Our Roots

In 1976, founder, Bettie Mitchell, received a call to "teach nothing but the kingdom of God," while visiting the ancient city of Ninivah. Soon after, she quit her teaching job and began counseling in her small home located in Beaverton, Oregon. Over the past forty years Good Samaritan Ministries has grown into an international ministry with centers in 24 countries.
