For the 11th consecutive year, Samaritan Ministries International has been certified as a “Best Christian Workplace” by the Best Christian Workplaces Institute.
BCWI, a pioneer in equipping and inspiring Christian leaders to build flourishing organizational cultures in their ministries, recently recognized Samaritan Ministries as a Certified Best Christian Workplace based on confidential responses to surveys of staff members.
Samaritan employs more than 350 staffers to serve more than 81,000 member households. Those households share more than $28 million per month in medical needs.
“Samaritan staff members have the uplifting and gratifying job of helping our tens of thousands of households honor God with their health care, while connecting with their brothers and sisters in Christ,” said Anthony Hopp, Samaritan’s vice president of external relations. “Our team has the privilege of being Christ’s hands and feet, assisting in the practice of Biblical community and bearing one another’s burdens, as Galatians 6:2 instructs. These remain as our core values and part of the unwavering mission of Samaritan, even as the health care landscape changes almost daily. In this important task, we can bring glory to God.”
Greg, a Samaritan staff member for three years, says he “loves” working at Samaritan.
“I have never, in 26 years of being in the workforce, experienced such a place as Samaritan,” Greg says. “Not only is working at Samaritan fulfilling, but there is also a strong belief in work/life balance. My marriage and family have experienced such a healing shift in who and how I am at home since I have become a Samaritan staffer.”
Staff members also find working at Samaritan spiritually fulfilling.
“I love being able to minister to members in the midst of major problems,” said Dave, who works in Member Services. “They need to know the comfort of our loving God and Father. There are so many hurting members who need to know that God is there in the midst of the pain and that He will take what the enemy meant for evil and turn it for good in their life.”
