Our Mission

We enhance connection, collaboration and the experience of God within the Unification community through creating intergenerational partnerships.

Our Story

In January 2016, a group of younger and older Unificationists came together in Phoenix, Arizona with the intention to create a relevant and timely educational experience. We quickly realized how differently we saw things and how different our experiences are in this movement. We spent the next two days listening to each other in a living room with open minds, and as we discussed our ideas we realized that there were many misperceptions on both sides. As we shared more deeply and really listened to one another, we were able to begin to understand and appreciate each other.

We realized that the program we needed to create was one that enabled people to experience this intergenerational partnership as well, and thus, Project Phoenix was born.
