Ecumenical Community Celebrations

“Lighten Up! with Doug Brummel” brings God’s family together again to celebrate the gift of faith and family! Our prayer is that through this celebration of joy, people of various faiths can return to their own church communities renewed in their passion for their faith, their marriage and their family!

This ‘groundbreaking,’ theatre-style event brings the entire community together, people of all faiths, to celebrate common values of our faiths & family. Doug brings to life his “cast of characters” which share timeless treasures of faith and family life. Young and old alike agree that this once-in-a-lifetime event breaks the mold of any typical theatre event as it fosters family life in today’s fragmented world. Bringing various faith communities together to celebrate the joy of the Lord and family values is unprecedented for many communities. Through sponsorship by various faith communities, all are invited and welcome to “Lighten Up!”

Conference Keynote Presentations

Since 1994, Doug and his ‘cast of characters’ have been a hit at conferences across the country. His gift of combining ‘wit and wisdom’ has provided audiences of all ages an opportunity to be revitalized, renewed, re-energized, and refreshed in their spirit as well as being entertained and engaged throughout their conference experience. The memories generated through this once-in-a-lifetime presentation will definitely last for years to come!

Whether it is a keynote presentation or a special “Lighten Up Show,” all generations and faiths are empowered with the basic tenets of our faith, as well as to ‘lighten upl one’s mind, soul and body!’ Filled with inspiration and motivation, audiences also leave ready to ‘lighten up’ their marriage, family, friendships, and larger community by being the Light of Christ to all they meet each day!

Doug has presented at a variety of national, regional, and local conferences over the years including: National Catholic Youth Conferences (NCYC), National Family Conferences (NCFLM, CFM), National and regional Religious Education Conferences (NCCL, Archdiocese of Los Angeles RE Congress), state-wide Knights of Columbus Conferences, Women’s Conferences, Deacon’s Conferences, Church Leadership Conferences, National Conferences on Catholic Youth Ministry (NCCYM), and others.
