The Tim Tebow Foundation has a great passion for people with special needs, and in 2014 they launched “Night to Shine.” The vision was simple… work with churches around the country to provide an incredible prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs, ages 16 and older.
This past February, 44 churches and 15,000 volunteers came together on one night, celebrating 7,000 honored guests with special needs. This unforgettable prom night experience changed Valentine’s Day weekend from simply a celebration of love, to a celebration of God’s love, people with special needs and the value of life. This year they will continue expanding this ministry into a worldwide movement that allows people with special needs to shine, churches to shine, volunteers to shine, and most importantly, Christ to shine.
We are thrilled that we get to be a part of this movement and offer a Night To Shine here at Christ Community Church! From watching the promotional videos to hearing Tim Tebow speak about this wonderful event, we gained just as much excitement to want this kind of event to happen here in Lake Charles, LA.
