Celebrating people with special needs.

North Coast Church is proud to be an official host church for the 2023 Night to Shine, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation. Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs ages 14 and older. This year, Night to Shine will celebrate its eighth anniversary as thousands from around the world will come together to honor those with special needs on Friday, February 10, 2023.

Every guest with special needs of the Night to Shine enters this complimentary event on a red carpet complete with a warm welcome from a friendly crowd and paparazzi.

Once inside, guests receive the royal treatment, including limousine rides, professional photography, hair and makeup stations, corsages and boutonnieres, shoe shines, a catered dinner, karaoke, and, of course, a dance floor… all leading up to the moment when each guest is crowned a king or queen of the prom.

Through generous corporate partners, we also can assist with beautiful prom dresses for the girls and tuxes for our gentlemen guests.

Caregivers & Parents can register for the Respite Room! The Respite Room is a private area where parents/caretakers of guests can spend the evening enjoying food, entertainment and rest while remaining onsite during the event. If medication is required during the event, a parent or caretaker MUST be available to administer the medication.


If you would like to be part of this wonderful event, we are looking for donations. You can donate to our Special Needs fund which will help us make this event a success. Email Marcia at [email protected] or call 760-330-9200 if you can help.

If you would like to help cover the cost of this amazing night celebrating those with special needs in our community, donate to the Special Needs Ministry.  Your contribution is tax deductible.


We need over 300 volunteers who can help with a variety of tasks including set-up, food, hair and make-up, check-in, acting as paparazzi, photographers and more!  There will also be a volunteer buddy partnered with each guest.  Register below for the volunteer position you are interested in and we will respond with more info as we get closer to the event.


I am blown away by how we are seeing God use the Church to step into this space as an advocate for people with special needs.  It’s not about my foundation or the churches themselves, but about communities coming together to love and celebrate people with differences. Every town, every village, every state, every country needs a Night to Shine for their special needs community – a chance to be a part of something significant and life-changing…and to be blessed in the process,” said Tim Tebow, founder of the Tim Tebow Foundation.
