Celebrate06, the annual adult conference of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches, was held July 29-August 3, 2006, at the Hyatt Grand Champions Resort in Indian Wells, California. The week’s theme, chosen and directed by FGBC moderator Keith Shearer, was “Hearts on Fire.”
National conference is organized and implemented by Tom Avey and the Fellowship Coordinator’s staff. Programming for the hundreds of pastors, lay leaders, and church members who came from all over the world included plenary sessions, workshops, recreational activities, and a host of small ad hoc meetings and gatherings for special purposes.
About a dozen national organizations and ministries had displays and personnel on hand, and most days featured meetings of the Women of Grace USA and the Association of Grace Brethren Ministers, who worked at reorganizing the pastors’ and church leaders’ organization.
