The Words of the Platt Family
Dear STF Applicants and Parents:
May the blessing and love of God and True Parents be with your family.
It has been a very eventful year and STF has been transformed, and continues to be transformed in exciting new ways under In Jin Nim's leadership. In Jin Nim's desire is to invest in all of our children, as her own, sharing True Parent's love with them. This year the participants have learned so much about vertical tradition and becoming owners of their life of faith.
We, as STF staff, seek to provide the best possible training for our Blessed Children as a foundation to build successful Blessed families and to succeed through the college years, thus preparing them to become the true leaders that this world needs. Therefore, our prayer is to constantly improve the STF program and find the very best way to serve the entire Unification Family and God's Providence.
The one year program has three main focuses: Outreach and sharing one's faith through witnessing, International service experience and Fundraising Training. Throughout the year the participants will have the opportunity to understand Lovin' Life Ministries and connect in heart with True Family.
To access the application information please log onto www.stffamily.com and go to "Application". The application deadline is March 31st, upon receiving your application STF staff will contact you and carry out a phone interview.
We believe that STF provides a great opportunity for high school graduates to take a "leap year" to find out who they are and go into the college years with a solid footing and a higher purpose.
We look forward to hearing from you.
