Dr. Jose Manuel Perez and his wife were both born and raised in Venezuela where they began their journey together as a young couple in the ministry. In the year 2000, they migrated to the United States in obedience to God with nothing more than His promises to lift their ministry in a powerful way in due time. Little did they know it would take over 20 long years of patience among trails, intense spiritual warfare, closed doors, sickness, and even near death experiences before they would begin reaping the fruit of their hard labor. It was in one of the hardest trails they would experience, being diagnosed with Leukemia, that Aldy had an astonishing experience where Jesus Christ revealed Himself to her in a vision and gave her the name of the ministry would have, International Missionary Community Shining Light. After being miraculously healed by the Lord Jesus, she recovered and later established the official name along with her husband and family in order to pursue God’s plans for them.

Today, IMC Shining Light is a ministry focused on reaching all the nations of the world through media and missionary outreach. With a passionate heart for doctrinal formation, prayer, biblical prophecy, eschatological teaching, and formation of missionaries around the world seeking to work alongside the ministry, Dr. Jose Manuel Perez, his family and team, work to spread the Gospel to the ends of the earth.

Matthew 5:14-16
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven."
Matthew 28:19-20
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
