Grace Covenant Church is proud to serve once again as a host of Night to Shine 2024, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation. The unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, celebrating people with special needs will be held in person by host churches around the world simultaneously on Friday, Feb. 9, 2024.
Grace is excited to be a part of this worldwide movement that God is using as a catalyst to change how cultures embrace people with disabilities and to rally the church worldwide to honor their local community of people with special needs, ensuring they know they are valued and loved.
Every guest of Night to Shine enters this complimentary event on a red carpet complete with a warm welcome from a friendly crowd and paparazzi, then called by name as they are crowned king or queen of the prom. Once inside, guests receive the royal treatment, including hair and makeup stations, limousine rides, a catered dinner, milkshakes karaoke, prom favors and a dance floor.
To host this special event, we are calling once again on the generous hearts of Grace and members of the community to serve as volunteers for the night and in preparation for it. There are 200-300 volunteers needed to bring the night together and make it magical for our guests and their families and caretakers. Learn more about each volunteer role below. Volunteers should be in seventh grade or older.
