Pastor Aubrey Shines, a Chicago native, began ministering in the Cook County Correctional System in Chicago, IL as an evangelical minister licensed by the late Bishop D. Husband (Churches of God in Christ). In 1987 God moved greatly upon Pastor Shines’ heart and he became founder of Glory To Glory Ministries. The ministry has since transcended denominational, cultural, and ethnic boundaries. Glory To Glory Ministries is now located in the inner city of Tampa, Florida. Over the past twelve years, this congregation has grown tremendously because of the anointing that God has placed on Pastor Shine’s life. In September of 2014, Glory to Glory Ministries International will extend its boundaries by opening the doors of ministry in their second location, Glory to Glory Ministries of Orlando, Florida. Pastor Shines most recent accomplishment is being one of the seven founders of the International Communion of Evangelical Churches organization under the dynamic leadership of Presiding Bishop Harry R. Jackson, Jr.
