When David Wood Ministries began, Dr. Wood and his team were inspired by the potential to reach, train and motivate one million Soul Winners around the world a goal he and his team have not only achieved, but exceeded. The basis of their work is that these Soul Winners will reach the world and continue the cycle of multiplication taught in the Book of Acts. David Wood Ministries specializes in programs that equip churches and leaders with the tools to help win souls to Christ.
Good Samaritan Ministries was founded by Dr. Michael D. McClary and his late wife, Janet, in the summer of 1987. Armed only with his King James Bible and the call of God on His life, Dr. McClary began a journey of service to His Lord. Good Samaritan Ministries is a Christian Mission that helps people trapped in homelessness, poverty and addiction get their lives back and become productive members of our community. Our ministry goes beyond toxic charity that just meets temporary needs, but leaves a person still trapped in the situation that had wrecked their lives. We address the needs of the whole person, emergency and long-term.
