S.H.I.N.E. Educational Institute
The S.H.I.N.E. Educational Institute is a division of S.H.I.N.E. Global, Inc. which is a supporting ministry of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. The S.H.I.N.E. Educational Institute is the newest and most exciting development at S.H.I.N.E. Global Ministry. S.H.I.N.E. Global Ministry™ is designed with one purpose in mind—to be used by God in the preparation of souls for the second coming of Christ. In an effort to fulfill the purpose for which this ministry was founded, we seek to labor as did Christ while He was on the earth, by combining two very important aspects of His ministry—the ministration of the word and the ministry of healing. We believe that, as these two aspects of Christ’s ministry are again reconnected, we will see the Spirit of God move with such power that has not been witnessed since apostolic times.
S.H.I.N.E. is an acronym which stands for Salvation and Health Integrated Neo-Evangelism. Inspiration for the name comes from the prophetic words found within the book of Isaiah, chapter 60, verses 1 and 2: “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.”

“The health exposition organized and executed by S.H.I.N.E. was well-organized and impactful. The best part of this initiative was getting to see a collection of various people, from various churches, with various experiences and expertise working together in such unity, and seeing the community share how this was a blessing to them.”

“Jeff and Janelle are an inspiration! It is so awesome to see young people like them allowing Jesus to work in them and through them to reach this dying world with practical, life changing, messages of hope! They are doing the work that Jesus has called His people to do in such a time as this and they are doing it His way. This vital ministry is preparing a people not only to stand true and be faithful during these final scenes of earth’s history but to finally meet Jesus face to face.”

“Dr. Louis has been so helpful to me in preparation for my surgery. Perhaps the most impressive point of my working with her is her balance of knowledge on both traditional medicine and its effects along with natural remedies. Her understanding of disease, its causes, methods of prevention and cure, are exceptional. I highly recommend as I see her work as a fulfillment of Gods counsel in relation to medical missionary work.”

“I had the opportunity to work with Jeff Louis of S.H.I.N.E. on a few occasions, including a Bible worker training that he conducted, when he hosted the East Valley Bible Studies, and when he was the speaker for a Revelation [seminar]… Jeff Louis is a man of God, a great speaker, and very knowledgeable. [He] is passionate about the Bible and ministry and…when called upon to explain and interpret the scriptures or to share biblical perspectives and interpretations…he will impart in the most authentic and comforting way.”
