Operation Prom Dress is a wonderful outreach ministry that provides gowns and accessories to public high school students who may not be able to attend the prom due to financial difficulties. But at Epiphany, it is more than just making prom dreams come true. We are dedicated to promoting positive self-image and confidence in teen girls based on their identity in Christ and inner beauty.
Held in the spring (typically in March) of each year at our Far Hills Campus, the girls are treated to a day of beauty and grace. After a light breakfast, each girl has the opportunity to select a prom dress and have her hair and make-up done by professionals who are donating their time and services. The girls will finish the day with a mini-photo shoot, lunch, prayer, and presentation of a Bible.
We may have some dresses available a few weeks after the event, for those who were unable to make it to this special day.
