shine conference 2019

What does it look like to serve our communities in a way that makes a lasting impact? Are some methods more effective? How do we ensure that the time and energy we spend makes a difference?

If you believe that successful schools are a vital part of a thriving community and are interested in learning how you can be a part, we invite you to Shine Conference 2019.

What is shine conference?

Shine Conference is a one-day event where Shine Partner Churches, APS faculty, guest speakers, and our team come together to give you the best resources on developing your community through the local public school. We take a church beyond just donating material goods to building transformational relationships.

We provide high-quality content and an open view into the impact that Shine Partnerships are having in Albuquerque.
