The Family Peace Association (FPA) was created as a vehicle to carry out the original mission of engaging a broad association of families to promote and practice the true family ideal as envisioned by the late Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon. Many Family Peace Association members have been members of the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification (Family Federation) but currently do not participate in any of its activities due to its lack of integrity and deviation from its original mission. They have joined our Association in their desire to stay true to the original inspiration and vision of Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon. Prior to the FPA’s formation in 2016, for the previous seven years (2009-2015), our members had hoped for a reformation within the Family Federation.
Dr. Hyun Jin P. Moon
The Family Peace Association believes that Dr. Hyun Jin P. Moon, the third son of Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon, profoundly understands the vision, mission, and life goals of his father, and he lives his life to faithfully carry forth his father’s true legacy. FPA believes Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon had recognized Dr. Hyun Jin P. Moon for his alignment of vision and goals and his leadership qualities, and therefore, appointed him to lead and carry on his authority and mission since 1998.
Due to opposition of his reforms to Family Federation Dr. Hyun Jin P. Moon faced resistance. He resisted the effort to institutionalize his father’s mission but rather to keep it as an international movement to solve the serious issues faced by the human family. Dr. Hyun Jin P. Moon also sought to change corrupt and oppressive leadership practices, create a culture of initiative and ownership among members, and build stewardship, transparency and accountability within the organizations of that movement.
Following God’s inspiration he continues to carry out the true vision and mission of his father, which encapsulates God’s dream for the human family. For this reason, FPA looks to Dr. Hyun Jin P. Moon for his leadership and guidance.
