-1 Cor 3:9 (NIV)
S.H.I.N.E. stands for Sending Hope In Natural Emergencies. Founded in 2016, SHINE’s vision is to serve and bring hope to those in need. We are a disaster-relief ministry based out of Eau Claire, WI.
God has a purpose for each and every one of us. With Him working through us, we can bring healing, hope, and restoration to communities – even in the midst of chaos.
Everybody has a role to play – regardless of age. We believe the Godly values and ideals are instilled at a young age, so what better way to solidify those values than to do God’s work with the whole family?
This is the whole reason we’re here at all; God loves people and wants to use us to demonstrate His perfect love to all. We strive for all the work to be love-driven and spirit-led.
SHINE was founded with two main purposes in mind:
1) to serve the needs of those affected by natural disasters
2) to bring the Hope of Jesus Christ to the lost and broken
Because we have a love for God and a heart for all his people. We experience disasters like floods, fires, or earthquakes too regularly that leave countless lives in a state of hopelessness. God calls us to be His hands and feet to reach these people.
We go straight to the communities directly impacted and begin serving in any capacity: cutting up and removing trees or debris, providing food and water, or even offering a hot shower.
The second front will be connecting and coordinating with the local churches. We’ll work to establish a safe place for anyone to come and receive prayer and hear about the Hope of Jesus Christ.
