The Interview and confession should be conducted by an official BFED representative or a member of the ESGD blessing staff.

You are always welcome to contact the European Second Generation Blessing staff:
Mr. Geros Kunkel: geros@esgd.org
Mrs. Orlande S chenk: orlande@esgd.org.

Alternatively, you may wish to contact your local BFED representative.

 

Matching

How do I prepare myself for the matching?

Two important steps in the matching preparation process are:

  1. Attendance of a Blessing Workshop. Details of upcoming Blessing Workshops can be found on the ESGD website: www.esgd.org
  2. Completion of the Blessing Application. All forms can be found here.


What do I do after I am matched?

Please complete the Matching Report Form and email it to blessing@esgd.org. We also recommend that both families meet (if possible) and conduct a small ceremony to celebrate the matching.


What is a PMC (Parents Matching Convocation)?

The PMC is a workshop that is designed for Parents to receive education and support regarding the Matching. It also provides a platform to for parents to share with, and connect to, other parents.


I don’t want to put myself on the website, is there another way to get matched?

The bcmatching website is not a mandatory part of the blessing or matching process.  It is simply a tool intended to support parents in the matching process.

The PMC is a good way to meet other parents who are looking to match their children. The Matching Supporter Team are also in contact with many families who are looking for a match.

 

Blessing

Where do I register for the Blessing?

Registration for the Blessing must be done through the Second Generation Blessing Department at blessing@esgd.org.


Do I need to attend the Blessing in person in Korea?

All Second Generation should attend the Blessing personally in Korea and receive the Blessing directly from True Parents.


When will the next Blessing be?

The next Blessing will most likely be in autumn.


What do I need to do in order to attend the next Blessing?

All Forms must be sent to blessing@esgd.org. Only qualified candidates who have completed the blessing application in time and receive approval from the European Second Generation Blessing Department will be able to attend the Blessing. If you are not sure or have any questions regarding your personal situation, please email Geros geros@esgd.org or Orlande orlande@esgd.org personally.

 

Website bcmatching

How do I get a login?

Please visit the website www.bcmatching.org and create an ID and password for yourself.


How do we get the parents’ password?

Your child’s profile on bcmatching.org must be complete. This means that all fields must be filled out, all the questions answered in the ‘blessing information’ section and at least one personal picture must be included.


What do I do if I am in contact with someone?

Please change your profile setting to “not available” or “close” your account.


Why is the parents’ password not working?

The most likely reasons are that your profile is still on “close” or you misspelled the password. From time to time the password gets changed, in this case please contact our European webmaster at orlande@esgd.org


What is the meaning of “open/ close” and “not available”?

You have the option to change your account settings to “close” or “not available”.
In the “close” setting, the profile can not be seen by any other candidates and you can no longer search for other candidates.
In the “not available” setting, the profile will be shown as pink to other candidates, indicating that your son or daughter is currently not available, but you can still search for other candidates.


Whom do I contact if I have a problem with my Child’s profile?

Please contact our webmaster Orlande: orlande@esgd.org
