...there are two things that I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt...that I will be put in a position to minister to teenage girls and young women all over the world...

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 23, 2013

Started in 1982, AMTC’s SHINE Conference is a bi-annual talent event held in Orlando, Florida. AMTC is a third generation, family-run ministry, started by the 1940s super-model Millie Lewis and her daughter, Carey Lewis Arban.

The SHINE conference is attended by actors, models, singers, dancers and comedians from all over the world: children, teens and adults called by God to be role models—talent missionaries in the world’s most important mission field: entertainment.

At this year’s SHINE, there will be over 560 performers being scouted by about 70 leading agents, managers, casting directors and music professionals. These VIP reps are from mainstream and Christian media seeking top talent. They return bi-annually, year after year since they find this top talent there.

Chanel Kong of NTA Talent Agency in Los Angeles says, “I have been attending AMTC for over 10 years now. Throughout the years the talent just keeps getting better! The event grows stronger with all the passion and hard work that everyone brings to SHINE. I love attending because I know I will always find awesome talent. It is also a wonderful experience to network with other industry professionals.”

SHINE has over 40 seminars during the six-day event because, “success in the entertainment industry is about ‘what you know’ and ‘who you know,’“ says Carey Lewis, AMTC’s Chief Serving Officer, “And, it is a platform for performers to walk through the right doors that can make a difference and launch a career.”

Brittany Giles of Bloc Talent Agency in LA & ATL agrees, “SHINE is an opportunity to not only meet industry professionals from across the nation but also to work on your craft in a week’s time. AMTC consistently offers amazing seminars, panel discussions, and showcases while staying centered in Christ. It’s a blessing to be able to meet with all of the new talent each season and encourage them on their journey.”

SHINE is known as a safe, family-oriented highway to Hollywood. Performers are prepared in The Bridge Training Program: a unique talent education program built on God’s Word and taught by godly coaches.

Performers who want to attend SHINE must audition and be accepted into the program. There is a comprehensive list of 2014 auditions on AMTC’s website http://www.AMTCworld.com starting with: Atlanta, GA Dallas, TX, Mobile, AL, Springfield, MO, Maryland/DC and Milwaukee, WI., in January.
