Heavenly Tribal Messiah Academy: First Special Meeting
Special Meeting with HTM Academy Regional Directors for the Establishment of the Heavenly Tribal Messiah Academy
By Bokjin Lee, HTM Academy
A special meeting for the establishment of the Heavenly Tribal Messiah Academy was held at the Heaven G Burger restaurant, part of the HJ Cheonwon Complex, on 7.18 by the Heavenly Calendar in the 5th year of Cheon Il Guk (September 8, 2017).
Newly-assigned HTM Academy director Rev. Yong Jin-hun was the MC for the occasion. He introduced FFWPU International Headquarters Secretary-general Dr. Yoon Yong-ho, who explained the significance of the establishment of the HTM Academy. He said that many aspects of the providence True Mother has been guiding are actually to create environments for witnessing. Yet even this is not the most fundamental issue; most fundamental, ultimately, is Heavenly Tribal Messiahship. Dr. Yoon emphasized that through the HTM Academy we will educate those who have joined a heavenly tribal messiah’s tribe after participating in the Heavenly Tribal Messiah Blessing. He emphasized the value of forming close relationships with cultural, religious and political groups and then establishing an International Association of Heavenly Tribal Messiahs in order to conduct group-level witnessing.
Heavenly Tribal Academy Director Rev. Yong Jin-hun then announced plans for the establishment of the Academy. He presented the vision and direction of the Academy, a specific action plan, and presented guidelines along which the Academy would be run. FFWPU International Headquarters Director-general Rev. Cho Sung-il followed with his explanation of the recent providence True Mother has been guiding, and the high providential importance she attaches to the heavenly tribal messiah mission. He said that Mother has emphasized that, through fulfilling the heavenly tribal messiah mission, we must ultimately bear fruit for God’s providence.
Afterwards, the Regional Directors of the HTM Academy and headquarters staff had time to discuss and answer questions about the operation of the HTM Academy. The occasion was an opportunity for all participants to make their determination to succeed in producing the fruits of heavenly tribal messiah activity in each mission country.
The Heavenly Tribal Messiah Academy will develop materials for educating those who have recently joined tribes and who have received the heavenly tribal messiah Blessing. The Academy will compile textbooks, and will continue to provide education and lecturer training programs for blessed families who have successfully witnessed to 430 couples.
