Licensed Unity Minister, Rev. Ildiko Kudlik, introduces her new Youth and Family Ministry in Europe.
When I was a child, I did not have much say in my upbringing and my education. Adults around me decided everything for me. The kind of individual I was did not matter, it was all about being moulded to become part of the grey mess of invisible people. My family’s and educators’ main job was to make sure that I would fit in.
Throughout my career, I have worked with children from different cultures as an educator. I have also worked with their parents. As a result, I have created and run different types of educational programs around the world discussing with parents and educators how to raise children and young people in a way that respects their unique individuality and involves them fully.
When I started training at Unity to become a Minister, I knew that I would want to work in Youth and Family Ministry. As a minister in training, I soon learned that in mainstream education, there is one very important element missing: we do not seem to consider the ‘God element’. We train kids to be clever and how to be successful in the world, but we often forget to invite them to realise who or what lives in the core of their being. There is not true happiness without being able to connect with the source of All that we call the Divine Presence in Unity.
It soon became my mission to engage as many children and parents as possible in realising and embracing our Divinity, as the source of our genuine sense of satisfaction in Life. The never ceasing Divine Presence that embraces us just as we are at any given moment in time, is the highest form of Love. Every child should know that s/he is Loved no matter what.

Does this sound exciting to you? Would you like to help build and grow this new Youth and Family Ministry? If so, continue reading below.
The main purpose of the UNITY Youth and Family Ministry is to foster Divine Creativity in youth – so they can create a life that is in alignment with their deepest selves and the Divine. This enables collaboration with the Divine in parenting, giving parents the tools to support their youngsters. The online UNITY Youth and Family Ministry will be available to any child, teen, or youth and their parents across the UK and European time zones.
The main activities of the UNITY Youth and Family Ministry are:
· to support both parties to gain deeper awareness of themselves and the Unique Divine Presence in them by using creative and artistic tools
· to educate parents to use creative Divine ideas in raising and supporting their children
So, why am I writing this post apart from introducing you to our great plans?
It is because I would like to ask for your support.
I am endeavouring to create a spiritual centre that will host the UNITY Youth and Family Ministry. I need a Board of Directors who will serve the Ministry to ensure that our work is aligned with UNITY’s principles.
Are you interested in joining me on the Board and journeying with me on this project? Please get in touch with me at the contact details below.
Finally, I seek financial support so we can put down the foundations and run the Ministry until it becomes self-sufficient. If you are open to help financially support this ministry, please get in touch with me at the contact details below.
My hope and dream is that I can make a difference in people’s lives by offering meaningful and Spirit-led teachings and guidance to the members of our Centre.
Abundant Blessings to you all,
Rev Ildiko Kudlik
European Youth and Family Lead Co-ordinator
