The North Central Phoenix community doesn’t have to look hard to find evidence of the spiritual force and legacy that was Reverend Dr. Culver H. “Bill” Nelson D.D., L.H.D. A simple drive along Glendale Avenue is punctuated by his touch. Traveling central Glendale Avenue west, you’ll find The Church of the Beatitudes which he founded in 1954, and eight blocks west The Beatitudes Campus, a retirement complex, also founded by Dr. Nelson in 1965. Nelson was an integral part of the Phoenix business, spiritual and social fabric for many years contributing to labor-management relations, the arts, transportation, education, care of the elderly and the mentally ill.
