Learn how to share the gospel through whole-person ministry.


“It is our most earnest desire to be a part of those who will usher in the second coming of Jesus the Christ. But before Jesus will come to end sin and suffering, deliver his saints, and end the great conflict between good and evil, prophecy foretells that there will be a group of saints so in harmony with Him that they will shine with the glory of God. In order to facilitate their development, our aim is to practice, train, and promote Spirit-led, integrative and collaborative methods of reaching people through healing, preaching, teaching, and media, online and in-person.”

About Us


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.

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.

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.

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.

[The Foundations of Gospel Health Evangelism course is] simple yet very informative. I have gained a lot of knowledge... I am very likely to recommend this course.

[I was benefited by] the delineation of specific steps to take in evaluating and assisting a client (i.e. the C.A.R.E. method) along with instruction and pointers on how to do research regarding a client’s complaints... I would recommend [the Foundations of Gospel Health Evangelism course] because it emphasized systematic thoroughness, carefulness and documentation which should be essential when dealing with a human with a health problem. Also, importantly it assisted the student to develop analyzing and reasoning skills while thinking of the client as a whole, integrated being so as to include the mind/emotion, body, spiritual and social. The course emphasized the core reason for the work of the [gospel health evangelist], being the well-being of the soul.

[The Foundations of Gospel Health Evangelism course] reactivated and stimulated my brain in cognitive thinking [and] gave me a great direction in which to proceed with my study in Health Evangelism. It enlightened my views on the intertwining between Christ’s methods and conventional medicine [and] taught me how to systematically and responsibly minister (serve) a client from start to finish. [It] gave excellent information on herbs and specific conditions. I could go on.

Learning how to approach [gospel health evangelism] in 2020 in a responsible fashion was invaluable. Identifying scholarly backed rational remedies was invaluable, along with dosages etc... I believe this course lays the important foundation of how to approach working responsibly as a health coach or gospel health evangelist in 2020. You [may] know how to make a poultice, but what are the legal limitations placed on you as a gospel health evangelist? This is why I have recommended this course to my church.

Gordon M.


I have learned so much that I have already recommended this course to several others. Anyone who is contemplating this work should consider taking this course, especially health professionals. The clear path as to how to use your medical training for the Lord is positively set forth in this course.

I am helping a lot of people by the grace of God from death to life. A lot of them had cancer, but they didn't know how to build their system so they would have strength for the chemotherapy. I was able to help them out. They thanked God and they thanked me. I told them that all glory goes to God.  I have to thank you for the [Foundations of Gospel Health Evangelism] class. Even though I am not finished yet, God wants to use me to help them so that I can help bring them to Him.  For every soul I reach for Jesus in the ministry, you will have a star in your crown because you’ve taught me.  I have referred some people to your class.

A spirituality that is Holy Spirit-guided, prayer-focused, deeply biblical, and centered in Jesus and His righteousness is paramount to spiritual success.


Man was created as an integrated being. The best ministry we can be engaged in will take into consideration and address the  physical, spiritual, mental, and social needs of a person. That will always be the most effective and winsome strategy. 


Global leadership in this prophetic vision is needed in this era of human history. We seek to produce leaders to help accomplish the vision in the local church, local conferences, divisions, general conference, and supporting ministries.


We must use sound, proven, biblical principles to do our work more effectively through the power of the Holy Spirit. Innovation is an important aspect of our work.


God uses most effectively the best offerings of a surrendered heart. Our God is a superb Being and part of being like Him is striving for excellence in our work. The results we leave to God.


S.H.I.N.E. exists to practice and promote Christ’s method of reaching people through whole-person care in the context of prophetically-inspired, strategic planning to reach the world’s most populated areas.


Jesus sent out his disciples in companies and small groups. This provided the needed moral and physical support a worker might need in the field. We believe that every worker needs support. We are dedicated to supporting our students and partners in educational, material and professional development. 


Collaboration is an important part of becoming effective workers in God’s vineyard. Cooperation is staple of S.H.I.N.E. thinking.

Frequently Asked Questions

about the S.H.I.N.E. Educational Institute

Absolutely not! The S.H.I.N.E. Educational Institute is conducted online for the main purpose of making high-quality, integrated gospel health evangelism training available to individuals worldwide. The principles taught within each course can be easily adapted to fit the needs of any region of the globe.

We are told that every church member should be a medical missionary. In other words, every member of the church should be trained in the work of reaching souls as Christ did, by ministering to them physically, mentally, spiritually, and socially. Not every church member, however, is able to secure time off from work or school in order to secure such training. The training at S.E.I. is designed with students and working persons in mind. It is flexible in that coursework can be completed any time of day and it is not necessary for a person to take a given amount of time off from work, school, or other duties in order to gain the training and experience that will enable him or her to effectively help and reach others.

In order to enroll in one of the courses at the S.H.I.N.E. Educational Institute, you will need a Bible, an electronic device with a reliable internet connection, and a web camera or other means of taking photos and recording videos. Access to a printer may also be necessary at various points throughout each course. The cost of the textbook and workbook (where applicable) for each course is included in the cost of the course, as is domestic shipping. If you require international shipping, please contact us at the S.H.I.N.E. Educational Institute via email or using the chat box at the bottom of this site.

The training offered by the S.H.I.N.E. Educational Institute is unique in that it lays a broad foundation for integrated gospel health evangelism and then delves deeply into the intricacies of the fields of religion and medicine. Our goal at the S.E.I. is to be used by God to produce adept, consecrated leaders for the global field, and one of the most important things to us as we engage in this work is to ensure that our students are able to thoroughly understand and think independently concerning the concepts that surround health, religion, and evangelism. We prepare our students to converse intelligently with experts in these fields and to confidently and responsibly help people become physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually well.

Our health coaches learn how to responsibly coach others toward better health. They study drug-drug, herb-disease, and drug-herb interactions. They learn how to locate evidence-based therapies and how to tell whether or not their therapies are effectively addressing their clients’ health concerns. They learn the dictates of the law as it applies to the work of health coaching and how to ensure that they remain in compliance. They learn the importance of spirituality in their work and tips to keep their connection with God at the forefront of their experience. And they receive individual support from our doctor and educational team throughout their training.

Our training is different because we are seeking through the work of the S.E.I., to develop autonomous leaders. We aim to provide the highest-quality of in-depth, cutting-edge, scientific and religious training and we encourage and equip our students to take what we provide and ascend to even greater heights. We aim to prepare them to confidently engage in their work, to gain precious experiences and then impart their knowledge to others, and to start enterprises that will contribute to the worldwide work and the overall mission of the Seventh-day Adventist church. Even after our students have completed our courses, we continue to help them grow in understanding and in experience through various means and we make ourselves available to them as they embark upon future evangelistic projects, with a goal of broadening the scope of sustainable, effective, integrated gospel health evangelistic efforts taking place throughout the global field.

Courses are offered on a year-round basis at S.H.I.N.E. Educational Institute, meaning that students may enroll at any time throughout the year. In these courses, students are privileged to learn from video lectures and other multimedia resources, assigned readings from the required textbooks, supplementary readings which will be posted on the course site as needed, interaction with coursemates via the course forum, and special, private, continuing education webinars that we offer to our students and alumni from time to time. Student performance will be evaluated through quizzes and projects.

We have endeavored to pack all of the information that we deem essential to various aspects of successful gospel health evangelism into corresponding courses. As a result, commitment, dedication, and a sincere desire to take full advantage of the training will be required in order to successfully complete the courses. Depending on your previous experience and learning style, you may need to devote more time to studying and experimenting with the material, but, for the average person, if you are able to dedicate 8-12 hours per week to studying, completing required coursework, and implementing the practical skills that are taught each week, you will be well on your way to becoming a confident, intelligent, and responsible health coach and gospel health evangelist in the studied area by the end of your 11-week course.

Upon completion of each of the courses, students should be able to meet all objectives for the course (as listed on the syllabus and the “Courses” page on this site) and practically apply those principles to the specific area of work. For example, upon successful completion of the Foundations of Gospel Health Evangelism (formerly Health Coaching & Advanced Lifestyle Consultations) course, among other things, you should be able to conduct and properly document a complete health coaching session; make appropriate, evidence-based recommendations to clients with a variety of ailments; and converse intelligently with physicians about individual cases with which you are familiar.

Students enrolled in this class also gain access to our Business Center which provides helpful information on how to start a virtual or in-person health coaching business, city mission, or lifestyle center, including logo construction, website design, service pricing, online platforms for video consulting, and more. We also promote our students and alumni on social media to help them gain exposure and feature our health coaches on our website, which helps increase their websites’ rankings with Google and other search engines.

We encourage collaboration among our students in ways that foster intellectual and spiritual growth and greater concerted efforts to reach souls for Christ. Additionally, we encourage all who have completed at least one course at the S.H.I.N.E. Educational Institute to join the “SHINE Educational Institute Online” Facebook group, which provides a medium for professional networking among and continued support from both peers and instructors as our former students meet challenges in their evangelistic endeavors.

Our students are afforded opportunities to shadow and learn from our medical director, Dr. Janelle Louis, and our education director, Jeff Louis, in order to learn both the clinical and business aspects of medicine. When our students have attained sufficient experience and decide to start a larger enterprise, such as a school, lifestyle center, or city mission, we make ourselves available to them throughout the entire process and help them in various ways to make the work a success.

It really matters to us that you are thoroughly equipped to intelligently engage in the Lord’s work, so we want to ensure that you have all of the information that you need in order to make an informed decision about enrolling in the S.H.I.N.E. Educational Institute. You may contact us at with your question and we will respond to your inquiry as soon as possible.
