About Bishop Aubrey Shines
Pastor Aubrey Shines, a Chicago native, began ministering in the Cook County Correctional System in Chicago, IL as an evangelical minister licensed by the reformation of the Church of God in Christ. He has earned a degree in Computer Science, a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology, and a Master’s Degree in Divinity.
In 1987, God moved greatly upon Pastor Shines’ heart and he became founder of G2G Ministries, Inc. The ministry has since transcended denominational, cultural, and ethnic boundaries. Throughout the country, Pastor Shines has been featured in various leading newspapers, magazines, and TV and radio broadcasts as a leading prophetic voice. This call upon his life has positioned him to minister prophetic insight into the lives of key spiritual leaders, top athletes, entertainers, and governmental officials.
Pastor Shines had a zeal for God’s people to know Him in a greater and more personal way, rather than solely through human emotions. In May 2002, he began teaching a basic theology course to train leaders in the Tampa/St. Petersburg, Florida area. The curriculum focused on the Patristic Period and the impact that the First through Fifth Century Fathers of the Church had on our global society. As a result of the consistent weekly Bible teachings, the attendance to these classes grew steadily in number during the first year. Saturating his desire with prayer, God began to clearly speak to him and it became apparent that God was leading him to shepherd this newly assembled flock of believers as their Senior Pastor.
G2G is now located in Temple Terrace, Florida. Over the past twelve years, this congregation has grown tremendously because of the anointing that God has placed on Pastor Shines’ life. Because of the unique leadership style of Pastor Shines, a high percentage of men flock to and actively participate in serving in this ministry. Over 40% of G2G members are men, while the average population of men in ministries across the US is 7-9%.
In September of 2014, G2G extended its boundaries by opening the doors of ministry in their second location, G2G Ministries, Inc. of Orlando, Florida. A prophetic word was given that the I-4 corridor of Florida will be the realm of G2G. Also in pursuit of God’s vision, G2G has filed the formal papers for the establishment of a charter school that will have an emphasis in both law and finances.
Pastor Shines’ most recent accomplishments include:
- Conducting daily TV and radio interviews, completing hundreds each year
- Authoring and publishing the book HOMOSEXUALITY? Things That the Media Won’t Tell You!
- Encouraging and welcoming 20+ ethnic groups to attend church every Sunday
- Founding Renewed Ethics Alliance (REA), an organization with the mission of helping inform, inspire, and empower people to get involved in the current issues that affect our nation.
Additionally, Pastor Shines is one of the seven founders of the International Communion of Evangelical Churches organization under the dynamic leadership of Presiding Bishop Harry R. Jackson, Jr. ICEC is A Communion of God’s Design in which he serves in the Communion as Bishop (D) and as the Prophetic Voice and Public Affairs spokesman.
Being convinced and assured that the Bible is the true Word of God, Pastor Shines travels extensively, sounding the alarm across America; never divorcing his biblical ministry from cultural or political issues. He compels the church to return to what our forefathers established and to live by what God has ordained in His Word, without compromise, addressing the most pressing issues of our day, primarily those relating to righteousness.
