The spark that was to flare into the first Northwest Fellowship Of The Spirit was struck at Silver Creek, Colorado, in July 2000, during a talk between a certain future American businessman and a future physician.
Several years previous the two had been relieved of the drink obsession by a complete psychic change stemming from a spiritual awakening. The two having a paramount experience while attending the Fellowship Of The Spirit Conference in Silver Creek, Colorado, agreed that the spirit of this conference must be carried back to their home town area in the Northwest.
A short time later in the home of these two alcoholics a discussion ensued between them and a man we shall call Biff, alcoholic number three. From these casual conversations, small gatherings were held and a community took shape around the vision of carrying the basic message of Alcoholics Anonymous to families and individuals affected by the disease of alcoholism.
