The Shine Effect:

Since May 2011, The Shine Effect has played over 625 concerts in 28 different states across the US and Canada. The band has played and ministered at many different churches, youth groups, Celebrate Recovery groups, festivals, revivals, Vacation Bible Schools, Christian camps, Christian and secular venues, community events, fundraisers, public and private schools, county and state fairs, non-profit organizations, etc. Celebrate Recovery is a HUGE passion of theirs as they all work the program themselves! They have played, ministered, and shared their testimonies at over 150 different Celebrate Recovery groups!

The Shine Effect gets their name from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5:14-16.
