Tim Tebow Took His Prom Date to CHURCH—and This Valentine’s Day, He’s Doing It Again

Whether it’s on the field, or in our hearts, Tim Tebow has become a household name for some of the greatest reasons. Whether he’s praising God, and making His name known on the football (or now, baseball) field, or simply being a good samaritan to those around him, Tebow lives in such a way that is full of compassion and grace.

In 2015, Tebow started an event called “Night to Shine.” It honors people with special needs by hosting a prom, just for them.

It all starts with a red carpet, and every Night to Shine guest gets to enter the complimentary event feeling like a star. Surrounded by a cheering crowd and friendly paparazzi, it is truly their night to shine. Screen Shot 2017-01-25 at 2.08.58 PM

The A-lister treatment doesn’t stop there. Once inside, guests are welcomed at stations for hair and makeup, as well as shoe-shining, to look their best for the big night. Corsages and boutonnieres are available and of course a karaoke room with lots and lots of dancing!

Unlike the high school prom, Night to Shine crowns all of its guests as king or queen of the dance, because we are all kings and queens in the eyes of God. It’s truly the highlight of everyone’s night—aside from dancing with Tim Tebow of course.

The event gained serious attention after its inaugural prom in 2015, and since spread like wildfire to churches and organizations across the nation.

This year, just in time for Valentine’s day, 375 different churches in the U.S. and 11 in countries abroad will roll out the red carpet and host the event for this wonderful group of people.

For Tebow, the growth of the Night to Shine event is phenomenal to see. His favorite thing about the entire movement is simply getting to love on his brothers and sisters—the way we all should!

“I’ve been blown away by the incredible growth of the Night to Shine movement,” he said. “It is so awesome to see what happens when churches around the world set aside their individual banners and names to do what I believe the church was called to do, which is simply love God and love people.”


This year’s Night to Shine event will be held on February 10. Visit for more information.
