What is The Society?
You are invited to watch this important video from Patricia Summers on the 27th anniversary of The Society for the New Message from God, where she shares part of the long and mysterious story behind The Society, the Messenger Marshall Vian Summers, and the Summers’ family.
The Society for the New Message from God is a 501(c)(3) religious nonprofit organization whose mission is to preserve, protect and present the New Message from God in the world. The Society is not affiliated with any other religious body. It is financially supported by donations from the students of the New Message worldwide, receiving no sponsorship or revenue from any government or religious organization.
The Society was founded in 1992 by the Messenger Marshall Vian Summers who saw the need for an organization and a dedicated core of people who could carry the mission of the Messenger both during and beyond his life, protecting the Revelation and maintaining its purity deep into the future.
The Society follows the direct guidance of the leader of the New Message, Marshall Vian Summers. Assisting the leader of the New Message is the Director of The Society, Reed Summers, who coordinates the Management Team that oversees the departments of the organization.
The Society’s mission is to bring the New Message from God into the world to people everywhere so that humanity can find its common ground, preserve the Earth, protect human freedom and advance human civilization as we stand at the threshold of great and unprecedented change.
The work of The Society is dedicated to advancing the mission of the Message and the Messenger — a mission originally established by God and the Angelic Assembly. This mission is deeply connected to the evolution and destiny of our world and is a direct extension of a Divine Plan to serve our world at this critical time in human history.
Since the beginning of time and the creation of the manifest universe, God and the Angelic Presence have advanced a mission to heal the Separation and redeem the separated through Knowledge, both in our world and throughout the Greater Community of intelligent life in the universe.
The Society is dedicated to serving this greater mission and Plan of God. At this time, our primary work is to receive, preserve, protect and present God’s New Message in the world. We seek to do this through the publication of books, supporting the process of international translation, hosting websites, forums, and many other online environments, providing education and engagement for The Worldwide Community through events, broadcasts, Encampments, and The Free School of the New Message.
By doing this, God’s calling and communication can reach the hearts of all people, awakening the power of Knowledge in the world so that people may discover their unique contribution at this time of escalating need, change and opportunity.
Yet this is a responsibility that far exceeds what we can do alone. It requires the support and assistance of many people. The books you hold in your hand, the website that informs and inspires you, the Greater Community Sanctuary which hosts the New Message events, and the offices that maintain this organization are all a product of the giving of many people.
And thanks to financial contributions, the doors are open to the Greater Community Sanctuary, The Free School of the New Message is open to all people free of charge and the volumes and books of the New Message are increasingly available free online. You, who may be among the first to receive and experience this New Message from God, can join others in making a real contribution to this vital mission.

About the Leadership of the New Message
Marshall Vian Summers
Messenger, Leader of the New Message from God
Marshall Vian Summers is the Messenger of the New Message from God. He was selected and prepared by the Angelic Assembly before this life to serve in this role as Messenger for the New Revelation and has now received the largest and most comprehensive revelation ever given to Humanity.
Marshall is the founder of The Society, which he established in 1992 to preserve and present the New Message from God in the world. He is the current leader of the New Message from God and the Worldwide Community of the New Message. He will eventually be succeeded in his leadership role by his wife Patricia Summers.
Today, the Messenger continues to receive the unfolding revelation of God’s New Message for these times and for the times to come. In addition, he is engaged in broadcasting his proclamation and core message to the world and also recording a vast legacy of teachings, directives, and clarifications to assist students in learning and living the New Message. Finally, he is working on the historic project of compiling the entirety of an over 9000-page Revelation into a new testament for humanity.
