Mission: Our primary focus has been the dissemination of The Urantia Book and its teachings worldwide with the cultivation of a diverse and spiritually fragrant community of believers. For over 50 years we have consistently created opportunities for reader/believers to connect around service, study and socialization. We foster the scholarly study of the book as well as encourage the artistic expression of its sublime inspiration. By bringing readers together we supply the social fulcrum of our faith movement, leveraging the talents and resources of many scattered reader/believers around the world.
Programs: Our Accomplishments Include:
We published the first Urantia Book that includes; a comprehensive indexed listing of names and topics, a two column print styling for easier reading, a universally accepted referencing system of: paper, section and paragraph numbers, an Appendix listing the accepted word and punctuation modifications from the initial 1950 edition.
Through our new exclusive publishing service, Uversa Press, we also offer study aids such as The Paramony and The Wrightwood Series.
Continuing in our 50 year tradition, we freely provide the Urantia community with outstanding printed publications such as The Mighty Messenger and The Herald that showcase the best thoughts and insights of individuals who have experienced a revelation that is epochaly significant.
Beginning in 1967, The Fellowship has been host to a Triennial International Conference for readers of The Urantia Book. Since 1980 these conferences have averaged over 1,000 participants. When a need is recognized, local and international scholarships for conference attendance are generously granted to Urantians who have demonstrated leadership and/or scholarly abilities.
Fellowship Members through a variety of sources provide thousands of dollars annually at home and abroad for grassroots outreach and dissemination projects, that have been initiated by inspired and dedicated Urantians.
The Fellowship Interfaith Program has committed readers that have presented the book to countless ministers, placed it in hundreds of religious libraries worldwide and most notably presented it at each of the last three Parliaments of the World's Religions;1993 in Chicago Illinois , 1999 in Cape Town South Africa and 2004 in Barcelona Spain.
The Fellowship Outreach Program has placed thousands of books domestically, enthusiastically presented numerous public lectures and participated in hundreds of public expositions in the last decade alone.
The Fellowship International Program nurtures and sponsors emerging Urantia students and communities around the world by connecting readers with leaders, fostering study and socialization by donating desperately needed books.
Our website, www.Urantiabook.org, is a virtual resource library inspired by The Urantia Book. This powerful cyber tool has quickly become an excellent source for outreach ministry, further in-depth study and movement history by Urantia Book Scholars of the last 50 years.
