This event, put on by the Tim Tebow Foundation is one of the most inspirational events to have taken place so far this year. The ‘Night To Shine’ was founded by the God-fearing professional sports star and is an unforgettable prom night experience centered on God’s love for people with special needs, aged 14 and older.
On one night, 655 churches from around the world come together to host the evening for approximately 100,000 honored guests through the support of 200,000 volunteers! It launched in 2014 and has become an exciting annual celebration that inspires thousands of people, including those with special needs.
Inspired by Love
According to Tim, about 20 countries participated in the event this year. The guests were all treated like princes and princesses for a royal night filled with glamour and fun. Seeing an inspiring event like this gives us a glimpse of Heaven. A joyful place where the extravagant love of God can be felt.
The Tim Tebow Foundation is a wonderful blessing to so many countries including the Philippines. The Night To Shine has become a huge platform that shares the love of God all over the world impacting millions with the love of Jesus. Let’s pray for more organizations that will influence the world through God’s love.
Tim made his debut as a college football player for the University of Florida. In 2007, he became the first college sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy. It became obvious to spectators that he doesn’t do things in half measure. He went on to be drafted to the Denver Broncos where he became the first player with at least 20 touchdowns passing and the same number of touchdowns rushing in the same season.
This is where Tim also started his signature move known as, “Tebowing.” He would kneel on the football field in prayer, giving God all the glory for his talent and career. Over and above his football career Tim has also made headlines in baseball, however most recently he has been in the news for his engagement to former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters.
