Richard & Evelyn Ramirez
In the summer of 2000 Good Samaritan Christian Center was established as a direct response to the promptings of the Lord. Since that time GSCC has been a declarative voice of the Lord in the Richmond Hill / Woodhaven sector of Queens, New York.
Pastor Richard is an exciting, dynamic and innovative speaker. He preaches from a solid scriptural foundation, bringing to light new understanding and applications of Kingdom principles. His sermons are edifying as they promote spiritual growth. His messages also challenge his audience to social awareness and intellectual advancement. The uniqueness of his prophetic and pastoral mantles qualifies him as a speaker worthy of our attention. His speaking engagements are frequent in the Tri-State region, and also have taken him to parts of the Caribbean and South America. Currently Pastor Richard is pursuing his Masters of Divinity at Alliance Theological Seminary.
Pastor Evelyn’s passion for the Lord and her pledge of allegiance to Him is evident whenever she speaks. Her “Jeremiah-like” delivery of weeping softens the heart of whom ever she comes in contact with. Additionally, her solid scriptural focus positions her audience for major spiritual breakthroughs.
GSCC thrives today as a multi-cultural, bi-lingual congregation, and is glaringly a burgeoning local church with a focus on leadership development and crisis intervention, because of the dedicated leadership of Pastors Richard and Evelyn Ramirez. Their distinct level of commitment to the all encompassing Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ causes expectation to build within the congregation to the point of overflow into the community, continuously influencing lives for the kingdom of God.

Raymundo Shephard has an affectionate heart for God – he has an affectionate heart for people – and his gifted expressions on the keyboard draw them both together. This is what the congregation experiences on a weekly basis as he leads in worship. Uninhibited praise and worship consistently happens under his musical directorship.
