18th Annual Leadership Conference January 13-16, 2020

Join us for the 18th Annual Leadership Conference …
“Church Leadership:
Agents of Hope in Troubled Times”
Monday, January 13, 3 pm –
Thursday, January 16, 12 noon
DiamondHead Beach Resort & Spa
Fort Myers Beach, Florida

PLAN TO JOIN US FOR OUR 18th ANNUAL LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE!
Recent events in our Church present new and complex challenges to Church leaders who minister to clergy and religious. Join other Church leaders engaged in ministries of hope and healing as together we explore some of the older and newer addictive behaviors and mental health disorders which impact society as a whole and frequently prevent clergy and religious from living lives of effective and joyous service to God’s people.

With distinguished and accomplished presenters to lead us, special attention will be placed on intervention, the treatment process, continuing care and the dynamics of ongoing twelve-step recovery.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
The conference is intended to benefit Church leaders responsible for the formation, care or well-being of clergy and men religious. This includes Bishops, Provincials, Superiors, Chancellors, Vicars for Clergy, Canon Lawyers, Vicar Generals, Vocation Directors, Seminary Personnel, Directors of Clergy Personnel and Healthcare Coordinators. All are welcome! One of our goals is to provide pertinent topics offered by expert presenters. We also wish to create an atmosphere for Church leaders to comfortably spend time together and share their wisdom, experience and knowledge. To allow for both objectives, we have extended the conference one additional day, making it a four-day conference, offering ample time for fellowship, sharing and respite. The conference is a valuable opportunity to learn about addiction and recovery, to gain resources, and to receive an overview of intervention services and treatment programs offered by Guest House.
