What is the difference between an Applicant and a Candidate?
An applicant is someone who is in the process of applying for the Matching or Blessing. A candidate is someone who has completed the full Blessing Application and has submitted it to our office.

You are always welcome to contact the European Second Generation Blessing staff:

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 or bfmatch 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.
Where do I register for the Blessing?
Registration for the Blessing must be done through the Second Generation Blessing Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.

All Blessed Children 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 Information must be completed on the Blessing Application Website. 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 Orlande email@example.com personally.
Website bcmatching.org and bfmatch.org
At the moment we have two international matching websites
How do I get a login to bcmatching?
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 firstname.lastname@example.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: email@example.com
How does the Website work?
On this matching Website both parents and children have to create a seperate user account
When can I see the other candidates?
First of all the profile has to be complete from the candidate than it will be changed to available and can be seen by others. After that the parents have the opportunity to look for other candidates with their parents profile.
Whom do I contact if its not working?
Please get in touch with our Webmaster Doreen at firstname.lastname@example.org
