The Global Endeavor will provide a new option, an additional path that may be attractive to readers of The Urantia Book who appreciate the opportunity to act on the teachings to benefit their fellow man. In practice, this approach will enable readers to apply their energy and idealism in ways that will foster the progressive growth and development of human society, while seeking to serve others in the spirit of the master seraphim.

This entirely independent project is intended to promote and encourage the process of imagination, innovation, and creativity that will be a pervasive and enduring theme throughout the next thousand years of life on our planet. Like the work of the twelve corps of master seraphim, the efforts of those who participate in the Global Endeavor will be closely identified with the inner life. As one of the authors of The Urantia Book states: “The advances of true civilization are all born in this inner world of mankind. It is only the inner life that is truly creative.[1220:3 / 111:4.4]

The path of idealistic service described in the plan will operate in parallel to study groups and in parallel to social organizations. This new path is neither a substitute nor a competitor, and it requires a very different kind of active engagement.

The phrase “entirely independent” means exactly that. In other words, the Global Endeavor is not a project of the Urantia Book Fellowship, nor a project of the Urantia Association International (UAI). The initial concepts were developed by an ad hoc committee that the Trustees of Urantia Foundation established in January 2004, but in January 2007 the Trustees decided that the project should be independent and encouraged individuals to pursue it.
