Research Project on the Orthodox Charismatic Movement
- Dear Brothers, Sisters in Christ and Friends:
I am presently in the last year, God willing, of my PhD studies in
Church History at Regent University. My dissertation is on "The
Charismatic Movement in the Orthodox Church in the United States."
The dissertation will be a historical survey of those Orthodox who
were/are involved in this movement as well as a theological/cultural
analysis of why the Charismatic Movement never met with kind of
success in the Orthodox Church as it did in the Roman Catholic or
other mainline Protestant denominations.
I am looking to interview, or receive testimonials, of Orthodox
Christians who were/are participants in this Movement. I am
interested in those who WERE/ARE Orthodox at the time of their
involvement, NOT Charismatics who have SINCE converted to the
Orthodox Faith. ALL NAMES WILL BE STRICTLY TREATED WITH ANONYMITY!
(I think that is how you say it :)
If you are interested in participating in this research, OR, know of
someone who might be interested please contact me by e-mail at:
timocre@regent. edu OR at 252-325-1605. I likewise welcome any
thoughts or suggestions, offered in Christian kindness.

PS: This is purely a research project and is in no way an endorsment
of the Charismatic Movement, its theology or leaders.
