FAQ Section

What is Shine Conference?
The Shine Conference is a great opportunity for women from New England network churches to come together to have an encounter with God, connect with other women, and have a lot of fun along the way. Shine exists to equip and empower women at each stage of life to understand their true worth and to build a strong identity in who they are in Jesus Christ. We believe that there is true beauty in womanhood and that there is something beautiful that happens when we gather together united under one cause – to make the name of Jesus known. Shine is a place where you will discover how you can know God in such a way that inspires others to do the same.
