Actors, Models & Talent for Christ: SHINE

Actors, Models and Talent for Christ is a missionary organization. We are a church without a roof. We are a fellowship of performers with a vision: to make good bolder in film, fashion, music and theater.

What does AMTC do? By God’s grace, we find, prepare and launch God’s performers into arts and entertainment: the most influential mission field in the world today – where good role models are desperately needed.

How? By means of The Bridge: a missionary training program, and SHINE, an international talent conference held twice yearly in Orlando, FL. Both The Bridge and SHINE are highly specialized and unique to the needs of actors, models, singers, dancers and comedians called by God to the Entertainment Industry.

Why? To love the lost. To light the darkness. To be ambassadors for Christ and examples for our children. To set the record straight about Who Jesus is—and to share His good news on the platforms of 21st century media.

More Details

SHINE began in 1982, as the dream of a former New York covergirl, Millie Lewis and her daughter, Carey Lewis Arban. Some years after generation #3 joined the family business, it became a ministry, headed by Carey’s son-in-law, Adam She.

SHINE is attended by actors, models, singers, dancers and comedians from all over the world: children, teens and adults called by God to be talent missionaries in media.

SHINE is a launching pad scouted by 50-100 leading agents, managers, casting directors and music professionals—from both mainstream and Christian media. They seek top talent and find it at SHINE. Only God could gather His performers and so many industry VIPs together in one time and one place.

SHINE is educational, with over 40 VIP seminars, workshops and panel discussions during the six-day conference. Because success in the entertainment industry is about ‘What you know’ and ‘Who you know.’

SHINE is a platform for God’s performers to walk into this mission field covered by His Word, His Spirit and His fellowship. Jesus said to ‘Make disciples of all nations’ (Matthew 28:19). Never has it been easier. Never has it been more urgent. Never did He say to go it alone. Spiritual preparation includes godly coaching, daily devotions geared to the entertainment industry and video inspirations by AMTC’s president, Adam She.

SHINE’s performers are 21st century messengers: missionaries called to be fresh, new and non-judgmental. They are prepared in The Bridge Training Program.

SHINE is by invitation only. Interested talent must Audition and be accepted to participate in SHINE.

Our Great Commission as a Ministry

At AMTC, we believe the Bible. Every Word. Isaiah 60:1-3 describes the who, what, when, where and why of the SHINE Conference.

“Arise, shine; for your light has come,
And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
For behold, darkness will cover the earth
And deep darkness the peoples;
But the Lord will rise upon you
And His glory will appear upon you.
Nations will come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising.” (NASB)
