The Faith Walk movement is the Baptist version of the Cursillo movement. Faith Walk endeavours to bring Christians to a closer, more personal walk with the Lord, Jesus Christ, and to encourage them to Christian leadership and action in their environments. Faith Walk is for Christians of all denominations. The weekend is not necessarily for new believers, but for those who understand God's grace.
Faith Walk was derived from Cursillo de Cristiandad. Due to the open-mindedness shown by Catholic cursillistas from the South of the United States, more and more Protestant candidates participated in Cursillo weekends. Those Protestants saw the need to make the experience available to other Protestants. This led to the development of a great number of movements under different names, in every corner of the United states and unbelievably in countries all over the world.
In 2001 the Lord began to draw people who had attended many different weekends to Faith Baptist Church in Bartlett, Tennessee. In less than two years the Lord brought people from Tres Dias, Walk to Emmaus, Discipleship Walk, Presbyterian Cursillo and Kiros. As we began to pray together the Lord began to show us that almost every denomination had started a version of the Cursillo movement, with the exception of Baptist. Thus the dream of Faith Walk would begin with the intent from the beginning to become ecumenical or as we put it “to strengthen existing churches”.
May the Lord continue to add to the number of names of the Cursillo movement until the entire world knows about His Grace and the many colors of His love.
