SPIRITUAL ASSEMBLY OF THE BAHA'IS OF PINAL COUNTY SOUTH AZ
If you have any questions, please get in contact with us.
Desert Rose began in 1988 in Tucson with the four-day Desert Rose Bahá'í School initiated by Hand of the Cause of God William Sears and his wife, Marguerite, along with a core group of dedicated friends. When Mr. Sears passed away in 1992, Marguerite continued Desert Rose Bahá'í School, but, with the knowledge and encouragement of the Universal House of Justice, decided to expand the four-day school into a permanent institute. Land near Eloy, Arizona, was purchased in 1996, and Desert Rose Bahá'í Institute, Inc., 501(c)3 a non-profit corporation, was created in 1997.
Corporate membership is composed of the members of the Spiritual Assembly of Pinal County South. The general membership of the corporation annually appoints a Board of Directors to administer the Institute.
Since its formation, Desert Rose has been continually expanding its programs. During the past few years the Institute has held a rich variety of seminars and elects programs that have explored in-depth subjects such as spiritual transformation, health and healing, conflict resolution, youth institutes, and new believer's training courses. The centerpiece of our programs continues to be our annual and well-loved Desert Rose Bahá'í School held each November over Thanksgiving weekend.
