2018 Teams

We are excited for our new teams that are being planned for 2018!

We will be serving in some new places this next year. We are making final plans for purchasing our own ministry base and there will be some opportunities there as well. God is good! He wants us to use our time and talents to build His Kingdom!

We will be adding to this list of confirmed teams (based on returning to the places we have served on our “2017 Teams” page) as we get more information – probably completed by the end of September 2017. The cost of serving on our teams will be $1850 in 2018. All of our team members raise short term missionary support by sending out letters to family and friends at church to raise this money. But you need to make your decision which team you will be serving on early on in the year (as soon as possible) in order to have time to meet the two financial deadlines. More on this soon!

  1. LightShine Ministries Base – Demolition Crew (pending) – This team will be clearing an area on our new property that is currently filled with old sheds, pheasant pens and debris. This is not a skilled labor team but will require some hard work. This team will most likely be in May 2018.
  2. Globe Creek Camp – Mel Miller will be leading another team to work at the camp that we have been building since 2008. Team Dates: June 22 – July 1, 2018
