Machiventa Melchizedek:

Preserving Truth and Lighting the Way for Future Revelations

Oak Brook Hills Resort and Conference Center

3500 Midwest Rd, Oak Brook, Illinois (near Chicago)

The Urantia Book Fellowship’s Education Committee is pleased to announce the upcoming Summer Study Session (SSS) 2022 to be held at the beautiful Oak Brook Hills Resort and Conference Center.  At long last, we will be gathering with our Urantia family in-person again, to learn about “one of the most unique of all characters ever to become connected with the history of Urantia.”  Paper 93:10.11 (page 1026.1)  It was 4,000 years ago that Machiventa Melchizedek heroically “personalized” on earth; at a perilous time when revealed truth was on the brink of extinction.    

Come study, worship and fraternize with us as we reflect on many of the features of the Third Epochal Revelation and celebrate the 4,000th anniversary of Machiventa Melchizedek’s bestowal on our planet! 

Together we will:

       Examine the circumstances that lead to his bestowal;

       Study his teachings and how they set the stage for Michael’s bestowal;  

       Explore the lessons to be learned from the Melchizedek mission for us as modern-day truth revealers;

       And much more…
