Unificationists who are ages 15 and older, and who have studied the Divine Principle at the two-day level.
From July 18-25, 2018, we will host a very special Divine Principle seminar at IPEC: the Hyo Jeong Divine Principle Conference.
The purpose of the conference is to return to the essentials of the Divine Principle and to revive our determination to create a culture of heart, centered on God and True Parents, through Tribal Messiahship. Participants will have the opportunity to listen to lectures about the Divine Principle and True Parents’ providential course, given by renowned Japanese lecturers Soichiro Nakamura and Masayuki Kachi, who are coming from Japan especially to teach. Both Rev. Nakamura and Rev. Kachi have taught at educational centers in Japan for over 40 years, and Rev. Kachi has long researched True Parents’ words as a member of Japan’s history department. This is likely to be one of their last teaching events at IPEC for some time.
With nearly 300 participants predicted to attend, this may very well be the most exciting seminar of the year! The lectures will be offered in Japanese with English translation, so English-speakers are highly encouraged to attend.
You can find details about a few special scholarship opportunities for pastor couples, certain elders, youth, and others when you register. Families are also highly encouraged to attend, though the age limit we recommend for children is 15 and up.
“The Unification movement is filled with hope, absolutely. Participating in this workshop really moved my heart. I want to leave all my anxieties behind, because I worry too much about many things and I fear too many things. I need to push myself forward from now. I won’t be the person that I was in the past… I don’t know exactly what I can do right now, but I am determined to inherit True Mother’s heart.” –Michael Hirakami
“I was especially moved by the fact that what we thought was just an activity given by True Parents was actually directly connected to building God’s ideal kingdom. We know that God lives in True Parents, but it amazed me to realize that True Parents have also been raising us to become people whom God could live in as well. God has lived His painful history, His painful life, as well His victorious life through our True Parents. But He doesn’t want to stop there; He wants to live in all of us.” —Denneze Nelson
“I see it in my head: this history that was passed down from God. God went through this path of tears and True Parents went through this path of tears and first-generation Unificationists went through this path of tears. Second-generation Unificationists stand on this foundation of tears and suffering. But because of that foundation, I feel so much hope. Hopefully, our path can be a path of joy for God, True Parents, and first-generation Unificationists, who can hopefully see us inherit their foundation and the foundation True Parents have laid for us.” —Izak Hernandez
“A lot of the things we learned were not easy things to hear. But I think it’s time for us in the American movement to stand up, take steps forward, understand True Mother, and respond to her in a substantial way. After you’ve invested so much time and walked a certain path for so long, there is no choice but to hope and persevere. When I see the example that True Parents have set, things weren’t always easy or fun, but they went forward anyway. So that’s what I really want to work on.” —Susan Bouachri
“Today, I believe I was able to capture something in True Father’s heart that he wants to bequeath to me as an individual and to us as a group. Now that we have been given the task of being tribal messiahs, we have to taste True Parents’ life course. God is sharing his heart with us and giving me a chance to take responsibility.” —Desmond Green
