Why Night to Shine?
Night to Shine celebrates the uniqueness of each individual guest by providing an unforgettable night where they are welcomed, valued and loved!
“When I was at one of the proms last year, a beautifully dressed queen of the prom was hugging me when the girl’s mom leaned over and whispered with tears in her eyes, ‘My daughter will never get married and she will never have children, but tonight you made her feel like a princess!’”
– Tim Tebow
Sharing God's Love
Night to Shine shares the joy that is found in God’s love for each and every person.
“From the moments the guests of honor reached the front door to the smiles on their faces as they were greeted and walked down the red carpet, it was obvious that the joy of the Lord was in each of their hearts.”
– Peggy Hyland, Volunteer for Christ’s Church at Mason in Ohio
Love & Support
Following Night to Shine, we have been encouraged to see countless churches develop continued programs for people with special needs.
Through Night to Shine, we hope people with special needs realize that their church can be a place where they are loved and feel welcomed.
