Our Mission: Chosen to Shine is a Christian organization that cultivates servant leadership in young adults by providing opportunities to serve on international and domestic mission teams.

We are grateful to have been awarded a Gold Seal of transparency from Guidestar in 2020! Chosen to Shine is a 501 (c)(3) non profit.

We were blessed to serve in Honduras the first week of 2020 before the pandemic began in the USA. Our team was 22 strong! What an amazing mission! Our second planned mission in July 2020 to Belize was cancelled. We will update here when a new opportunity to serve is planned. In the meantime, we are sending funds to help with food distribution and medical needs via the World Gospel Outreach CarePay Program. There is a donate button below or the address to mail a donation.

We continue to raise funds for any young adult desiring to serve while still in school. This encourages and provides each student up to a $500.00 scholarship to help offset travel costs.  If you would like to sponsor a student please contact Lauri Cunningham at 618-978-9700 or the donate button below.  

Our medical mission teams serve through the World Gospel Outreach. We serve within the talents of our team.  Most importantly, we share the gospel of Jesus Christ to all those we meet! Chosen to Shine teaches servant leadership to young adults giving them an aerial view of our world through missions.  If you are interested please let us know.  We will resume monthly meetings soon and welcome you!

If you would like to support our mission team please contact us or use the donate button at the bottom of the page for your tax deductible donation.  Questions may be directed to [email protected] or Lauri Cunningham at 618-978-9700.  Our address is: Chosen to Shine, 17 Junction Drive Suite 300, Glen Carbon, IL  62034 

We are grateful for your support as we let HIS light shine!
