The Words of Hyung Jin Moon
In his address that day Hyung Jin Moon spoke on the activities that were underway for the purpose of transforming the Korean church.
“These are some of the things the Korean church is doing right now. We are strengthening the churches, making preparations to build the organization and moving forward. We are shifting from an individual-based ministry to a team ministry. As we shift towards a team ministry, the pastors will become those who love and care for the members and who can nurture their life of faith. They will be those who can help the members shine out more than any CEO.
“Pastors must have a totally different mindset in order to relate well with the members and be successful. If we can truly guide the members and help them shine as blessed families then the Unification Church will shine. When members are happy within the church, they will find greater confidence and this will naturally lead to witnessing activities.”
In her inaugural address, In Jin Moon, chairperson for the Unification movement in America, stated the following:
“Seeing True Parents’ recovery, I know this was a miracle. I think God blessed us because you all offered many tearful prayers for True Parents. Unworthy as I am, True Parents gave me this responsibility. I truly envy all of you who are in Korea. Kook Jin Moon, chairman of the Foundation, is taking responsibility over the Foundation and the economic aspect [of our movement] while Hyung Jin Moon is also doing a good job as the international president. True Parents have said that all their sons and daughters are living up to their name. Kook Jin, his name, refers to Korea and he represents the True Family. Hyung Jin’s name means that everything will go well.
“I witnessed with my own eyes how the members were being loved, being appreciated, and how they were deeply moved and revived.”
In his address, Kook Jin Moon spoke about developing the church.
“If we wish to grow our churches worldwide, we should first develop the headquarters. In truth, we are all one family, if we wish to make our church better from now on, the most important thing now is that we be honest when we talk to one another.
In the past we had many secrets, and that is why we did not succeed. We must change our culture. We have to make a culture where the people who left can return. The culture that the international president is creating at the Headquarters Church is a culture of forgiveness. We must now shift from a culture of judgment to a culture of forgiveness.
“If we set the right organizational goal and culture, we can create results. Our organization has to become stronger and more rational if it is to succeed in fulfilling its goals. If we can make our organization like that, there is nothing we cannot do.”
