Present the Gospel to the community.

Teach preventive health education.

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 Sacramento headquarters.

We are an international organization. Our mission team members come from many different countries, as well as from many different states in the USA.
