SHINE: Serving Him In Neighborhoods Everywhere

Grace Christian Church (GCC) fulfills its purpose by multiplying leaders, ministries, and churches.  Through the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit, it is a church that plants churches for the spreading of the Kingdom and the glory of God.  We have named our multiplication/discipleship ministry SHINE, which stands for Serving Him In Neighborhoods Everywhere.  Whenever possible, SHINE partners with local organizations and institutions to increase our influence and impact, all to fulfill our vision to be a force for good in our community.


How SHINE Works

SHINE Projects

Route One Ministries
Assistant Pastor, Cara Garrity


Route One Ministries fights exploitation and human trafficking by entering strip clubs and meeting with women. Strip clubs are avenues for human trafficking and sexual exploitation that have become disturbingly normalized by our society. We are convinced that each individual is made in the image of God and sexual exploitation is a devastating violation of that image. By partnering with Route One Ministries we are privileged to adamantly affirm the God-given dignity of each woman exploited, become better equipped to stand against the exploitation of human beings, and witness the power of Jesus in the midst of darkness. 

Straight Ahead Ministries
Assistant Pastor, Cara Garrity


The Straight Ahead Ministries Lynn Re-Entry Center serves proven-risk and at-risk youth in the Lynn area. While our society may harshly view proven-risk and at-risk youth, we affirm each youth as having a God-given identity and purpose. By partnering with Straight Ahead Ministries, we commit ourselves to supporting vulnerable youth in living in their God-given identity and purpose.  Doing so, we believe we will witness the transformative power of Jesus in the lives of young people.
