Welcome to Good Samaritan Ministries
of the Metro-East
Our mission is to promote positive change in Washington Park, IL, by equipping people for Christ-like living.
The vision for GSM (Good Samaritan Ministries) began in 2000 among a small group from the Collinsville (Good Samaritan) Church of the Nazarene who began distributing much needed supplies to Washington Park community.
In 2003, a small home was purchased in Washington Park to establish a permanent presence and many of GSM's core ministries were established.
In 2006, the current GSM Center was constructed through partnership with the Collinsville Good Samaritan Church of the Nazarene, the Illinois District Church of the Nazarene and numerous private donors.
Today, Good Samaritan Ministries of Washington Park operates as a full-licensed non-profit Nazarene Compassionate Ministry.
We help people find their God-given identity and purpose through following Jesus Christ.
We equip family members to care for one another to change cultural cycles of dysfunction.
We foster loving neighborhoods to direct people towards making wise choices for the present and future.
We desire to work in cooperation,
not competition, with the community to make lasting positive change.
We develop leaders from within the community to sustain and further lasting positive change.
Following Jesus' pattern, we strive to care for the whole person beyond just physical and spiritual.
