Celebration Women’s Spring Conference - ‘Seeking True Happiness’

Date Posted: 3/7/2011

Women today are a generation of seekers; our desire for happiness is one of the most basic facts of human existence. Walk into your favorite bookstore and you will notice shelves of books offering popular advice on how to live a happy life. Guidance on how to achieve happiness effortlessly — happiness that is typically associated with financial prosperity, professional success, physical appearance, material prosperity, cars, homes, dream vacations — has become a million dollar industry today.


This year’s Celebration Women’s Ministry National Spring Conference is focused on finding the true happiness we’re all seeking – true Christian happiness ultimately found in our relationship with Jesus, the foundation of our HOPE. 


The weekend event is entitled, “Celebrating HOPE!” Guest speakers are Rhea Briscoe and Dr. Shirley Arnold. Rhea Briscoe, who comes to us from Wisconsin, has a passion to share the love of Christ and to watch the power of the Holy Spirit transform women. Dr. Shirley Arnold, named as one of the, “Top 16 Woman in Ministry” by a national publication, is on a mission of planting seeds for the growth of God’s Kingdom. 


The apostle Paul shared the love of Christ in these words, which focuses our attention on the meaning and importance of Christian HOPE, “To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of the mystery, which is Christ in you, the HOPE of glory” (Colossians 1:27). This is the theme scripture for the weekend. The pathway to becoming somebody, the pathway to eternal glory, is simply the pathway by which we receive Christ by faith and He lives in us. When Christ lives in and through us, we are no longer nobodies, destined to play by society’s rules. We are somebodies. Our names are written in the Book of Life and we are children of the King! 


No more talking about someday or achieving effortless happiness through books sold on countless bookshelves. Now is the time to celebrate true HOPE, only found through the H.O.P.E — Holy Spirit’s Omnipotent Power Experience. Members are encouraged to bring the women who are important in their life and meet up with your Celebration sisters, to share this life changing experience, at the Omni Westside Hotel in Houston, April 8-10.


The conference draws women from all over the country; from Chapters all over Texas, South Carolina, Florida, Wisconsin and New Mexico. We invite all women and teen-age girls who want to deepen their relationship with Christ and to discover that, Christ is IN us and He is the HOPE of glory!

Celebration Women’s Ministry is a woman-to-woman ministry of sharing, encouraging, discipling, and mentoring in the faith. Our focus is presenting the truth and beauty of the message of salvation, healing, renewal, and restoration in a manner that reaches the inner-woman. The purpose of Celebration is to strengthen and enrich the spiritual lives of women by helping them discover and grow in the fullness of life that God intended for all women to experience as citizens of His Kingdom on Earth.
