“You Shine – We Shine” – an Arizona Shine initiative to include and encourage our listening communities as they reach out in kindness one to another
An important part of Arizona Shine’s statement of purpose and vision is: “It is our desire that every person in our listening communities experiences the love of Jesus through an Arizona Shine listener.”
Through Arizona Shine’s brand new “You Shine – We Shine” initiative, listeners become active in the story God is telling. Our strategy is to provide tangible opportunities for listeners (called “Shine Spotlights) to share of their time, talent and treasure through acts of caring, compassion, and kindness to others. Sometimes this can be as simple as inviting others to attend special events or just sharing kindness.
We know that when YOU Shine, WE Shine. So we’re developing partnerships and opportunities that will take place several times each year throughout our listening communities. These opportunities will be projects designed to involve listeners, volunteers and Arizona Shine staff in activities that will have tangible impact for good for individuals and organizations. These projects will often be done along with local churches and organizations.
In these early days of this new initiative, projects may be as simple as participating in already established, ongoing community outreach projects and events – inviting others to join in a time of sharing and love. The program is sure to grow and mature over time – and, of course, with your help and participation!
