Start: Becoming a Good Samaritan

Michael Seaton

What does it take to “love your neighbor” in a global community? Start: Becoming a Good Samaritan is an unprecedented initiative to help Christians live out Christ’s love in world-changing ways right where they live. This groundbreaking training program helps small groups, families, entire churches, and organizations of every size explore the most pressing issues of our time—then start actually doing something about them.

Join teacher, speaker, and award-winning author John Ortberg as he hosts six emotionally packed sessions featuring a remarkable array of global Christian leaders, including Eugene Peterson, Philip Yancey, Matthew Sleeth, Jim Cymbala, Chuck Colson, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Brenda Salter McNeil, Kay Warren, Joni Eareckson Tada, Rob Bell, Shane Claiborne, and many others.

The study takes Christians out of the pews and into the streets where, as the hands and feet of Christ, they will live out the gospel, positively impacting those suffering from poverty, social injustice, pandemic diseases, and more.
