Since it's inception Global Samaritans has had a vision for ministry. The early teams were involved mainly in construction but ministry was still a vital part of what God was doing in Africa. The very first team was involved in pastor training and evangelism. Showing the "Jesus Film" was an integral part of the ministry that teams were involved in and it remains a vital aspect of our village outreach.
As the orphanage grew so did the ministry. Teams were starting to "go out", traveling away from the compound and doing teaching and preaching in surrounding villages. Pastors were trained and relationships were forged, and Global Samaritans was becoming well known in the area as proclaimer of the Gospel.
While the message is still the same, the methods have changed over the years. There are still pastors conferences, revivals, men's and women's ministry, youth outreach and of course there is always vacation bible school for the children. These will continue to be the focus for our ministry but we have recently partnered with local missionaries who have been in the field in Zambia for many years. We are working with them on providing "needs" based ministries to villages that don't see as many volunteer mission teams. It is our hope that by going out a little further and getting a little more out of our comfort zones, we will see many coming to know Christ as their Saviour and the fulfillment of the Great Commission.
