Founders & Team
Gabriel of Urantia and Niánn Emerson Chase are spiritual leaders, pastors, teachers, counselors, authors, and motivational speakers who have given their lives in service to humanity and to fostering a future of unity and peace. Together they are the Pastors of a Divine Administration, an innovative spiritual concept of government.
In addition to Camp Avalon Spiritual Nature Retreat, they are the founders of Global Community Communications Alliance temple church and The University of Ascension Science and The Physics of Rebellion, the world's only spiritual university teaching the concepts of the Fifth and Continuing Fifth Epochal Revelation (The URANTIA Book and The Cosmic Family volumes). The University campus is one of the world's largest spiritual communities located in Southern Arizona with members from around the globe.
Their "Global Change Teachings" found in books, articles, and videos present practical solutions to bring about global change through spiritual unity without uniformity. Their dynamic spiritual insight provides real answers for the crises our world faces, empowering individuals to actively heal their own lives and our planet.
As founders of one of the largest sustainable communities in the world with multiple artistic organizations and service programs for humankind, Gabriel of Urantia and Niánn Emerson Chase are putting what some might call a "Utopian" vision into ever-expanding practical applications daily.
Camp Avalon Spiritual Nature Retreat is a beacon of light and hope for the present and future generations to discover deeper spiritual meaning through intentional connection with nature, which to me is the quiet yet powerful manifestation of The Creator's artistry.
