The Meaning of Spiritual Leadership

Gabriel of Urantia and Niánn Emerson Chase are the physical embodiment of spirituality and leadership. They are spiritual elders, leaders, pastors, teachers, counselors, authors, community builders, and sustainable living pioneers. In 1989 they founded Global Community Communications Alliance—currently a 120+ member spiritual community and university located in southern Arizona in the historic southwest towns of Tubac and Tumacácori.

Together they are the Head Administrators of a Divine Administration, an innovative spiritual concept of Government. Additionally they serve as the Executive Directors of the Alternative Voice, an international periodical, which fuses spirituality and leadership with activism—a pioneering idea that has inspired many other leaders.

Gabriel of Urantia and Niánn Emerson Chase are spiritual elders who have been proactive in the spiritual, social, and environmental arenas for decades, standing up for justice and godly social service. Together they hold the Mandate of the Bright and Morning Star, a spiritual mandate focused on creating global change to assist our planet's shift into higher levels of consciousness, increased cooperation and a global sense of responsibility for each other and the world. Their Global Change Teachings present very real solutions to bring about global change through spiritual unity, without uniformity.
