To Preach the Gospel, equip the Church and change the world.
The mission …
Shine exists to proclaim Jesus Christ to all lost peoples around the world, to mobilize the local church to embrace the Great Commission, and to equip the present and next generation of leaders in their spiritual quest and service to God and society.
The vision …
Shine partners with the church in local communities in the U.S., Africa, Asia and other parts of the world in presenting a clear, concise and compelling proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Some of our strategies include but are not limited to community-wide evangelistic festivals, pastoral leadership conferences, good business leadership and governance seminars in the developing world, and print, digital and broadcast media. We mobilize the local church to demonstrate God’s love in creative and compelling ways that lead people to know God, worship Him authentically, grow spiritually, connect relationally and serve joyfully.
Our central core value is love. Our purpose and our vision exist because:
We love God with all that we are, all that we have, and all that we do. We love all people because all people are important to God.
As a ministry working in partnership with a broad network of churches, we hold this value as central, understanding that when we get the love part right we are empowered to reach out to individuals, neighbors, communities and to our world most effectively.
