What is the Good Samaritan Initiative?

LSF’s Good Samaritan Initiative is a celebration of that which unites us – the mission of sacrificially loving and serving our neighbors in the name of Jesus Christ. It is our desire to partner with you to honor a Good Samaritan in YOUR congregation who stands out for their service to others, and, by extension, help to fuel a spirit of SERVICE in the Church.



Interested churches need to simply nominate an individual (or couple) who embodies the spirit of the Good Samaritan. LSF will coordinate with you to present your nominee with a nicely framed Good Samaritan Award via recorded video or in-person presentation, and will recognize them on our webpage and social media.

Finally, nominees will also be entered into a random drawing to receive one of several large prizes to be awarded at the capstone virtual Good Samaritan Celebration Banquet to be held in February 2022. This video-streamed event will again recognize all nominees and contain inspiring presentations, including an opportunity to hear from:

  • Rev. Dr. Gregory S. Walton, President, Florida-Georgia District, LCMS

  • Rev. Pedro M. Suárez, Bishop, Florida Bahamas Synod, ELCA

The virtual Good Samaritan Celebration Banquet will be streamed online with the ability to join anywhere. However we encourage you to use it as an opportunity to get your church together by creating a watch party of your own.

This is an exciting opportunity to unify around the mission of bringing God’s healing, hope and help to people in need in the name of Jesus Christ.
