Celebrate 2019_ Logo_FINAL

Sept 27 – Sept 29, 2019, Omaha, Nebraska

“I was so blessed by the entire weekend. It is such a neat thing to be shown such love and respect – often missing in our culture! God’s spirit reigned and ministered in precious ways.” – a C2017 attendee

Celebrate 2019! is a national gathering of  boomers, builders and empty nesters to discover a life with purpose for Jesus Christ. Past events have focused on telling our story and anchoring our faith. This year we will look to God to define our lives for his purposes. Celebrate 2019 will include encouragement, fellowship, music and entertainment. You won’t want to miss it!


Celebrate 2019! will be held September 27-September 29, 2019 in Omaha, NE.

Register now to reserve your spot. The registration fee includes meals and convention activities noted in the schedule. Hotel Reservations must be made separately.

The theme for Celebrate 2019 is Living With Purpose. Speaker Dr. Ray Pritchard will be leading us through God’s word and helping us understand God’s purpose for us in this life. Dr. Pritchard is the President of Keep Believing Ministries. He has ministered extensively in China, Bolivia, Columbia, Paraguay, Belize, Haiti, Nigeria, Switzerland, Russia, India, Nepal and South Korea. Dr. Pritchard is a frequent conference speaker, radio talk show guest and author having penned 31 books. Musical entertainment will be provided by The Foto Sisters showcasing a blend of sacred, classical and worship music. We will also enjoy the mix of message and magic from David Garrard. Combined with good food and great fellowship, Celebrate 2019 is sure to encourage and inspire us in Living With Purpose.
