Mission Statement:

Spiritual Unity/Global Change

Community Description:

Global Community Communications Alliance, a multifaceted nonprofit organization, ecovillage, and church, was founded by spiritual leaders Gabriel of Urantia and Niánn Emerson Chase.

We are a cosmic family, with members and friends from diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds world-wide. Service to others, soul growth, and living in divine pattern are emphasized. Healing incorporates spiritual and scientific techniques of tron therapy (an advanced form of energy transference), and morontia counseling. At the Soulistic Medical Institute a medical doctor, clinical psychologist, massage therapists, and other healing practitioners address both the body and soul. Soulistic Hospice caregivers are interfaith ministers.

Members and children of the religious order are students in the Global Community Communications Schools of Ascension Science & the Physics of Rebellion. Classes on The URANTIA Book and The Cosmic Family volumes are offered for local residents. Weekend seminars and home-study courses are also offered. Hundreds of supporters worldwide are affiliated in many ways.

We offer experiential training in organic gardening, animal husbandry, construction, and various trades at Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage. Vocational training and apprenticeships are offered year-round. Our Personality Integration Rehabilitation Program for teens and adults offers individualized programs written by a team of qualified professionals.

The Sea of Glass—Center For The Arts Venue (with national & international acts & activist speakers), the Food For Ascension Café (farm to table slow food vegetarian) and Sacred Treasures(fair trade store) are located in Tucson.

Global Family Legal Services assists local and international low-income clients with immigration and other legal matters. The Out of the Way Galleria in Tubac’s art colony features CosmoArt. Spirit Steps Tours offers retreats, sacred vision quests, cosmic medicine wheels, and sweat lodges. Global Community Communications Publishing offers many spiritually oriented books: The Divine New Order and the Dawn of the First Stage of Light and Life, The Cosmic Family volumes, Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf – A Handbook on How To Defeat the 1% by starting and maintaining communities and subcultures, The Sharp End of the Needle (on diabetes, dialysis & kidney transplant), Teachings on Healing, and the Alternative Voice, a quarterly periodical fusing spirituality with activism.
