This chapter talks about other movements and encounters that have branched off from the mainline Fourth-Day movements. While technically not part of the Fourth-Day movement proper, the offshoots share in the major aims and goals of the Cursillo weekend encounters that inspired them. The proliferation of Fourth-Day movements and their offshoots indicates the depth of desire by contemporary American Christian men and women to encounter Christ, experience healing and renewal, and become part of a new community. These offshoots also signal something else that is peculiarly American—the pluralism of Christianity. In part because of the disestablishment clause, American religious history—in this case Christian—is replete with instances of sectarian movements. It would be historically inaccurate to say that America has a “Christian history.”

Keywords:   Fourth-Day movements, Cursillo weekend, contemporary American Christian men, new community, pluralism of Christianity
