Dream Big

At Global Top Gun, we learn that our life, our skills and our heart are all meant for something greater. A few Top Gunners express what they look forward to in life after Top Gun:



“Over the past few weeks at the Global Top Gun Workshop, I have had an incredible experience of deepening my faith. By connecting to the homeland of Korea for the first time, I’ve been able to understand the heart of True Parents in a way I never have before. Day after day, hour by hour, and minute by minute, I truly feel like everything that happens while I am on the Cheong Pyeong grounds is sanctified by God. That He is guiding me, caring for me, and taking great joy in my presence here. It is genuinely as if we are in the Kingdom of Heaven, and I can’t wait to spread it throughout the world.”

-Adam Gottlieb, USA



“I work with the Ocean Church, started by True Parents, and today I realized that even though I have the support of the foundation of USA Ocean Providence, we will need to create the vision that we want to work toward. Together, this is the best way to connect everyone at heart. Rather than offer my own small-minded global vision, we all can work on this together, to create unity and truly include everyone from professionals to visionaries to Ocean Church families.

Fourteen countries around the world and 14 states of the U.S. are all reporting that they feel alone in the fight to keep True Father’s vision of Ocean Providence alive. We need to network everyone and make it clear that we are not alone!

There are so many passionate people around the world: families, businesses, companies, programs and churches. We need to understand God’s heart and desperate desire to inherit the Heavenly standard to the entire world, humanity and all nations.

Yesterday I realized that in order to directly connect to the heart of God, I must feel His sorrow, hope and joy for humanity, the joy that we can all feel as we work together to realize this dream.

Cheong Pyeong is truly a training center for the body and mind, spirit and heart. Every ounce of devotion and dedication that I have made here has been substantially appreciated and God has constantly replied to me in the form of inspiration, relationships, Hoon Dok Hwe (scripture) guidance and tears for humanity.

Thank you, True Mother. I will go forward with my brothers and sisters to understand God’s plan and hope for us. I cannot express my gratitude enough for what you have done for us!”

-Branch Gaarder, USA



“Many times I heard from other people that we need to build a culture of heart with each other and how important this kind of culture is. Sincerely speaking, in my opinion Top Gun is doing this in reality. What I found here has been greater than I expected. I like so much the way this workshop is going and is developing. This training makes me think more deeply about what I can do to make our big family bigger and bigger.

The lectures that we received until now are filling my heart not just with great inspiration but also love toward our dear True Parents and also determination to work harder in building Cheon Il Guk, God’s Kingdom. What I feel is that here we are building more deeply our relationships with each other and most important with the root of our movement, True Parents. So, after this workshop, I am sure that all of us in our nations will cooperate more with each other like leaders of heart.

The media training that the staff are teaching us is really helpful to me, and now I understand more clearly how to use the Internet for witnessing and inspiring others.

Sincerely speaking, here I really feel like True Mother’s daughter, and I want to say to her, ‘Thank you for taking care of us.’ Here I can see that we have amazing brothers and sisters around the world, so, yes, I believe that we will build Cheon Il Guk. I will try to give my best in my mission country of Albania when I go back.

Thank you, Top Gun, for this amazing training! Thank you, True Parents, for saving me! I promise to you that I will do my best.”

-Majlinda Matraku, Albania

    The GodParented experience is the Root by which we have the profoundest connection we need and can never give back to enough, by which we are never alone … We are liberated to have that experience by how attending Parents gives Grace that separates us from the Fall …

    If we work from the constant growth in that experience at heart, whether 1st or Blessing Gen, wherever we are across the globe, across the cosmos, we will never be alone or work alone …We will never lack empowerment with the truest of ideal hopes … Even we never met, we would never say, “I don’t know you. I don’t trust you’ to each other. If we say that, we have fallen short of the Root experience and the real-time Living Word is not yet in us enough.

    In the same Hope & Love of GodParents, that we can now know more than ever! after Foundation Day, with True Mother of One True Parents as our Center, we have all of highest Heaven behind us.

    By investing our all & forgetting, we grow for Their Dignity as filial Blessed couples of united mind and body ever learning anew our identity as a unique link of service to One everlasting Dynamic Family for only good fruits of The Victory of our God Trinity Parents… Glory ! *)*)/ <3
