Like other “emotion based” character defects, anger, when expressed the way God intended, can be beneficial. However, for many of us, re-learning to express anger in healthy ways can be a struggle. It may even feel like a never-ending cycle of frustration, disappointment and relapse. Victory over unhealthy anger depends on four key qualities.

  1. Uncovering the source of our anger and what triggers it.
  2. Defining what individual sobriety for us looks like.
  3. Establishing real accountability.
  4. Learning to set healthy boundaries for ourselves and those around us

Breakout participants will hear from our panel of CR leaders with multiple points of view and varied life experiences. We will share our personal struggles, victories and hope in a relaxed, conversational style with plenty of audience participation.


Six Keys to Making the Vision of Celebration Place a Reality- Whether a Celebration Place ministry is just beginning, or has been up and running for a while, vibrant Celebration Place ministries have 6 things in common.

Together we will explore how:

  • Volunteers make all the difference.
  • Innovation sparks excitement & encourages growth
  • Submission to Jesus, the church & the model ensures a solid foundation for the long haul.
  • Inclusiveness opens the door for adults & children, alike, to share their gifts and talents.
  • Overcoming common challenges together builds connection.
  • Newcomers breathe life into our ministries. Focus on the Newcomer is essential to growth.

Roy T Bennet said, “Great Leaders Create More Leaders-Good leaders have vision and inspire others to help them turn vision into reality. Great leaders create more leaders, not followers. Great leaders have vision, share vision, and inspire others to create their own.” Join us as we talk about this VISION and how you can make it your own.
