Gregorio Camdas Agulan
Greg Agulan wanted to come to UTS in 1989 when he first heard about the
Seminary from Elias Soria (Class of 90) who was then studying here. His
responsibilities as a CARP regional leader prevented him from coming at
that time and it was not until August 1996 that he finally arrived in Barrytown.
was born in Valencia Bukidnon in the Philippines and is the sixth child
of a family of ten. He joined the Unification Church in 1984 when a classmate
asked him to attend a 4-day seminar on the CAUSA Worldview sponsored by
CARP. He appreciated the logical truth of the presentations and a month
later he attended a 14-day seminar sponsored by CAUSA. This so impressed
him that he became actively involved in CARP activities.
Greg has always felt a concern for those who are suffering and has therefore
felt drawn towards activities which seek to alleviate human problems. He
felt a particular concern about the influence of communism in the Philippines
and saw the work of CARP as the best way of addressing his concerns. His
active involvement led to his being appointed as the leader of CARP in
his school. Through teaching Divine Principle and the CAUSA Worldview,
Greg says that My understanding of Divine Principle was deepened and I
became even more convinced that it provides the solution to the problems
of humankind. He also became an instructor of Wonhwa-do.
He is excited to be here at the Seminary because I have a high regard
for UTS as the vision of True Father to establish a training ground for
future leaders who have social as well as ecclesiastical responsibilities.
After graduating, he does not plan to continue his studies unless the dictates
of his mission require him to do so. He hopes he can serve this community
well while he is here and work with the other juniors to make an even better
