SHINE is a Christian medical and dental global ministry team dedicated to helping
heal the body and nurture the soul. We are committed to sharing the gospel of Jesus
Christ according to the great commission.
SHINE presents one mission each year (though we would like to do more as our funds
increase) to a needy country that has been recommended by the IMC (International
Ministerial Council of the Church of God [Seventh Day]).
Working through COG7 churches of that country, a mission is planned that offers medical
clinics, dental clinics, and evangelism. Following the mission, some individual cases
are selected to receive follow-up services. SHINE is also a “mission within a mission,”
as the experience of participating on these trips will forever change the minds and
hearts of volunteers.
SHINE is a non profit organization dedicated to serving God through medical, dental,
and evangelical work. We have completed missions in Mexico (Chiapas area), Guatemala,
Nicaragua, Honduras, Jamaica, and Ecuador. We normally organize expeditions during
Spring Break, though the times can change. Our most recent mission, in Ecuador, was
held in June.
Funds for each mission are raised through donations and fundraising events hosted
by CoG7 churches.
SHINE’s local headquarters is in Sacramento, California, though it operates under
the General Conference of the Church of God (Seventh Day), whose headquarters is
in Denver, Colorado. Questions about SHINE’s operations should be directed to the
We are an international organization. Our mission team members come from many different
countries, as well as from many different states in the USA.
