What a wonderful time to be alive! There are so many opportunities to serve our LORD Jesus Christ in Alaska. Whether you are a skilled craftsperson or gifted with working with people, God has a place for you in building up His people and giving Him glory. We work with local churches, Bible camps and other ministries in Alaska to strengthen the Body of Christ there.


Hello Everyone!

I would encourage you to read through our website and pray for this ministry. We are committed to making disciples of Jesus Christ and developing leaders to build His Kingdom not only in Alaska through our ministry, but also in seeing them pursue and embrace their own callings throughout the world!

Tom Denlinger - Ministry Director

On May 13, several people are starting a whole series of teams that worked on our new missionary base property. On June 1, our Framing Team completed the structure of our first building and the following week, our Roofing & Landscaping Team worked hard! Take time to watch this video and praise the LORD for His faithfulness!

The following video is last year's video report after we cleared land for this year's project. AS you watch this, take time to thank the LORD for His faithfulness bringing us so far! Praise His HOLY Name!

Take time to visit our some of our photo albums and team reports on our 2018 teams. But something new for this coming year is that we are dedicating a minimum of 6 teams to build our first building on our new ministry base in Palmer, Alaska.  CLICK HERE to read more about the specific plans of those teams. If you can give towards purchasing build materials, the teams that are forming for those teams will skillfully complete their work on time. We really need your help in giving towards this need.

We are a Kingdom ministry. The Kingdom of Jesus Christ is made up of people - people from all cultures and different ways of life. We desire to connect people and encourage them - building covenant relationships that last a lifetime!

What can destroy relationships like this? The Bible says that we are not at odds with people but against spiritual forces that are unseen to the natural eye (Ephesians 6:12).

We believe the Bible when it teaches us that we are in a spiritual battle in order to subdue kingdoms that are set against our LORD (Hebrews 11:33).  We are not only commanded to make disciples of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19-20), but all of us at LightShine Ministries have been called to see His Kingdom established in Alaska!

Join with us in simply being Light in darkness!  Jesus said that we are the Light of the world. All demonic principalities and powers (Ephesians 6:12) that rule over this great state will be broken down and displaced by the Kingdom of Jesus Christ (1 John 3:8) just by the work of God's people. Jesus told us we would do even greater works than He did (John 14:12-13).  Please pray for brothers and sisters in Christ who do this work in Alaska and for us as we help equip them with tools for ministry.  Jesus will be Lord over all of Alaska!  This is what we are praying and working for!

For 23 years (since 1995) we have been offering assistance to brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ by helping them build His Kingdom in the hearts of the people of Alaska.

We offer short term missionary opportunities for people who love people, love the outdoors and desire to serve our God in places where churches need help in establishing Bible camps.

Please take time to explore our website and ask the Lord if He would have you be a part of our next missionary team to Alaska!

"For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."  Ephesians 2:10

God has created you to do work for Him.  We view our ministry as a "Pipeline of People" from the lower 48 states to Alaska.  People who love God and His people.

Matthew 25:40 (NKJV)

“And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’"

We want to announce the beginning of a new phase of growth for LightShine Ministries and ask you to pray for our leadership.

As many of you know, we purchased a property in Palmer, Alaska and have already begun to develop it as our “base camp” for sending teams all throughout the state to come alongside churches, Bible camps and other various ministries.

Our new theme for this Capital Campaign is “Empowering Generation to Generation” and it represents the heart and soul of what we do - raising up leaders to make missions a lifestyle rather than a “once and done / been there done that” event.

Please pray for us. Our leaders are doing a lot of work preparing to set this Capital Campaign in motion - making videos, full color brochures, PowerPoint presentations, planning events for this fall and winter, meeting with individuals and working with a team of professionals to raise the top goal of $900,000 over the next 5 years.

We have seen God provide $180,000 which has already been invested in our property. He is already at work! We just need to be faithful in seeing this goal till it’s completion.

There is much more vision to share with you. But for now, take time to read the verses on this campaign ad and ask the LORD to do His work in all of us.

Thank you.
