What is the
Shine Conference.

Shine Conference is a three-day gathering of women across New England who are searching for a way to grow closer to God while being led & encouraged to seek a community to keep that search moving.

Each session is designed to pull you away from the distractions of the world and everyday life so that you can gain tools and knowledge that will help brighten your light and allow you to SHINE brighter than ever before.

The world seems dark right now... but ladies there is a bright light burning within us ready to flood the world with hope, truth and love.

This moment in history is like no other... as women of SHINE we are being called to join together to show ourselves, our friends and our families that THIS MOMENT is going to lead to a time of transformation and change.

THIS MOMENT is the time to invest in ourselves - an investment that will equip us with the heart to be a better wife, a better mother, a better friend and  better messengers of God's word.

Shine Conference is a time that is all about YOU! This is your chance to slow down and lean into a time that is going to abundantly fill your heart & mind with God's BEST!

Ladies, let's be honest... our to-do lists are always a mile long and often taking care of ourselves is not on the top of our list. Make it a priority to sign up this year, make it a priority to stop the excuses and see what can happen when you decide that YOU DESERVE THIS.

Asked Questions
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.
Are there minimum age requirements for the event?
Our Shine Conference is designed for women over 18 years of age. And while we LOVE our children, this time is important for us women to connect with each other and grow deeper with God so we can be the best woman, wife, mom, friend, daughters that we can be!
How do I reserve a room?
This year we are only selling conference tickets. This will allow you to decide how many people you feel comfortable staying with. Determine your roommates then call and to reserve a room for your group!
What if I don't know that many people?
You are not alone! We have all been when we didn't know a lot of people, but then we met some amazing people and friendships grew!
