DEXTER, MO. – Living Water Worship Center (LWWC) will be hosting the Shine Effect at the October 7th Celebrate Recovery meeting. The Shine Effect is an energetic 3 piece Christian rock band from Jacksboro, TN striving to serve God and minister to others through music. The band consists of Josh Roberts (vocals/guitar), wife Christa Roberts (drums), and brother Ben Roberts (bass/vocals).
The band released their first full length self-recorded album “The Life. The Hope. The Journey.” in May 2011 and since then they have played over 400 concerts with many great bands. In March of 2013, The Shine Effect released their new 6 song album “With Open Eyes” which was recorded at The Sound Lair in Knoxville, TN. As of January 2015, The Shine Effect started playing acoustic concerts as well!
The Shine Effect gets their name from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5:14-16. “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on a stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
The Shine Effect has taken this verse to heart and tries to truly be that shining light in a dark world. Their passion is to encourage the church and reach out to the lost through music and love, while making many new friends along the way!
They have performed at over 60 Celebrate Recovery gatherings and Bryan Gentry the Stoddard County Celebrate Recover director said, “We are really excited to have the Shine Effect coming to our Celebrate Recovery meeting and want to invite anyone who needs God’s redemption along with those struggling with addictions as well as our young people in the Stoddard County region to come and hear their redeeming message in music.”
