Geoff Theiss (Executive Director)
I'm Geoff, a self-discovered, second generation reader. I was born, raised, and schooled in the San Francisco Bay area and am now comfortably settled in Reno, NV. As for my general character, I am two parts enthusiasm junkie, two parts jack-of-all-trades, and one part global adventurer. Mixed into all that and instilled by the teachings of The Urantia Book has been a real, vibrant, and ennobling personal relationship with God that I have been continuously searching to better understand and strengthen. Having found this vibrant Urantia Book community, I have fallen in love—with them and with an emboldened sense of self (and cosmic)-purpose. I am eternally grateful to be alive. And part of being in this new community and part of showing that gratitude is to help enable other people to find the same. As Robert Byrne states, “The purpose of life is a life of purpose,” and we as individuals are able to spread this idea not by telling or explaining but by simply loving. That is the beauty of this community and the thing I want to share.
