Go Dark, Shine Bright


Go Dark. Shine Bright.

Go Dark, Shine Bright

The Go Dark, Shine Bright Campaign is for anyone with a desire to grow in their spiritual walk with Christ. Believers of all ages are invited to join us in shifting the way we use our social media, so that the light of the Lord can shine more brightly through us. 

So, what does it mean to Go Dark and Shine Bright? 

A 10-Day social media fast and concert of prayer followed by a 10-Day Challenge to
proclaim the Gospel.

“Go Dark”

A 10-day social media fast where we set aside the distraction of social media and focus on Jesus. Christians from around the world will gather to pray, in a variety of physical locations as well as over Zoom. 

“Shine Bright”

After the 10-day social media fast, we then spend the next 10 days proclaiming Christ both online and in local communities in New England and beyond. 

This program is designed to strengthen your faith in the following ways:

  • Declutter your mind by shutting off the non-stop stream of social media
  • Connect with a community of believers to build up the body of Christ
  • Proclaim the gospel to unbelievers in a way that combats negative media portrayals of Christianity
