Join our monthly Space Coast Chapter 

of  Near-Death Studies

Welcome to Space Coast IANDS

Our Mission

Join our monthly meetings to learn more about Near-Death Experiences.  Participants are welcome to attend to share their own story or listen and learn about others' experiences.

Our Vision

To provide a safe and comfortable sharing experience so that people can learn more about Near-Death Experiences and how those experiences give hope for our eventual final transition from earth.

Our Team


Deb Davis


Deb Davis is the facilitator and contact person for this local chapter of the International Association for Near Death Studies.   After several years of exploring and learning more about people having Near-Death experiences, she and her friend Lynne decided to find a way for local people in the Space Coast and surrounding areas to share their own experiences.  She and Lynne believe the sharing experience will give others HOPE in this overwise challenging life here on earth.   

Lynne Grace

Therapist and Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Lynne was the original founder of this chapter; however, in February 2021 she transitioned beyond earth.

Rev. Tom Leach

Rev. Leach has been on the spiritual path for most of his life.  Raised  Roman Catholic, he was an alter boy when he was young;  and  he fully expected to attend St. Mary's Seminary in Baltimore, MD. to become a priest.  While the Roman Catholic Church provided foundational principles, he continued to have questions that were not being answered.  

Somehow, he knew there was more.  

While he has been doing spiritual counseling much of his life, also serving as a Chaplain for his fire department, Rev. Tom became a Oneness Blessing Giver in 2011 and was ordained  in 2013 by Rev. Dan Chesbro of the Sanctuary of the Beloved, under the Order of Melchizedek.   With his spiritual grounding and the "unity" philosophy that he carries, Rev. Tom truly walks the path of a "Peaceful Warrior".

Janelle Mendez began connecting with the local chapter of IANDS shortly after the 'transition'  of her mother, Lynne Grace.  As she attended more  of the monthly meetings, her interest in Near-Death Experiences seemed to grow exponentially; and she recently agreed to serve as a Board Member for this chapter.  We know her mother is happy about that decision!  Our chapter is certainly fortunate to have this young, bright woman take on this new role.

Angie Moates

Angie Moates is very excited to be part of this local chapter of IANDS.   Most especially, knowing how much her friend Lynne was determined to provide a group for the Brevard/Space Coast region,  She is honored to be part of such an uplifting vision for our community and looks forward to serving as a Board Member on the Space Coast IANDS organization.
