Night to Shine

What is Night to Shine?

Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs ages 14 and older. It provides an opportunity to celebrate the uniqueness of each guest by providing a night where they are welcomed, valued and loved. Volunteers share the joy that is found in God’s love for each and every person. Through Night to Shine, we hope people with special needs realize that church can be a place where they are loved and feel welcomed. On one night, February 8, 2019, churches from around the world will host Night to Shine for thousands of honored guests and Trinity Church is grateful to participate.

Do Guests Need Chaperones?

Our chaperones are called “buddies.” Each guest will be accompanied by a volunteer buddy throughout the evening, providing companionship and general assistance needed during the event. All buddies have completed a training for the event hosted by Trinity Church.

Does a parent or caretaker need to stay for the evening?

A parent or caretaker is required to remian in the building for Night To Shine.  A respite room with food and fellowship will be provided for all parents and caretakers.  Due to space limtations, we can accomodate two parent/caretakers per guest.

Why Volunteer?

Join the Team!

For Night to Shine to be successful requires a LOT of person-power! Are you interested in serving during the event? We need volunteers to serve in one of two capacities, as a buddy (host an honored guest for the evening, showing him or her all the event has to offer) or on a specific task (parking, registration, greeting, serving food, etc.)

Please register to serve here.
