Our Assessment Department

Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organize information in articles related to Charismatic Christianity. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list there.

For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProjects and Wikipedia:WikiProject best practices.

Title[edit]

WikiProject on Charismatic Christianity

  • Charismatic Christianity was chosen because both Pentecostalism and Charismatic movement have arguably narrow technical meanings, where Charismatic Christianity encompasses both

Scope[edit]

This project will create a reliable and comprehensive guide to everything related to Pentecostalism, the charismatic movement and their offshoots and relatives. These articles should be included in the Category:Charismatic and Pentecostal Christianity or one of its subcategories.

Articles within the project's scope will include people (leaders, preachers, evangelists, theologians), places (churches, colleges), practices (tongues, prayer, spiritual gifts), concepts (teachings, doctrines, movements) and institutions (ministries, organizations, publications). The history of charismatic Christianity (pre-Pentecostal views of the gifts, the beginnings of Pentecostalism, the rise of the charismatic movement) as well as its contemporary manifestations (current preachers, revivals) will be included. For a full list of related categories, please see Wikipedia:WikiProject Charismatic Christianity/Categories. There are existing reference books which also deal with the topic of Charismatic and Pentecostal Christianity. A list of the articles included in one of the more recent such reference books can be found at Wikipedia:WikiProject Charismatic Christianity/Articles. We acknowledge that there is, and will always be, significant possible disagreement regarding what are the more important articles to any project, the list of articles in other reference books is a good place to start anyway. John Carter (talk) 18:42, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

Potentially controversial inclusions[edit]

This project will include groups and figures such as Victor Paul Wierwille and the Children of God who are not considered part of mainstream Pentecostalism or the charismatic movement. Their inclusion is not a judgment on whether they can be considered "Christian", but an acknowledgement that they have important features in common with, or find their roots in, a form of charismatic Christianity.

Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team selections[edit]

These articles have been selected by the Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team for inclusion in one or more release editions. Please help ensure that these articles remain of the highest possible quality.

Departments[edit]

This project began because of a personal interest in aspects of charismatic Christianity and the observation that the current content on Wikipedia on this subject is of inconsistent quality. For example, there are many gaps (as of writing this, there is no entry for Charisma magazine (US) or the Fountain Trust (UK), for example) and many existing articles are poorly sourced or stubs written from a non-NPOV.

Tasks[edit]

  1. Help get the project page into shape, including creating templates
  2. Identify existing Wiki articles and tag Talk section with WikiProject template
  3. Identify and list significant gaps
  4. Add all articles relevant to this project by category to the Wikipedia:WikiProject Charismatic Christianity/Articles list.
  5. Use the recent changes function to monitor these articles for improvments, vandalism, or other changes.

Adopt an article[edit]

Similar to the Collaboration of the week, but on a smaller scale, you might want to "adopt" an article. This would involve doing the research, writing, and picture-taking (if possible) for either a non-existent article or a stub. Of course, everyone else can still edit an adopted article, and you can work on other things too, but the idea is to find a focus for a while, to try and build up the number of quality articles the Project has produced.

New Wikipedia articles related to Charismatic Christianity[edit]

Please feel free to list your new Charismatic Christianity-related articles here (newer articles at the top, please). Any new articles that have an interesting or unusual fact in them should be suggested for the Did you know? box on the Main Wikipedia page. DYN has a 120hr. time limit from the creation of the article.

  • RHEMA Bible Training Center
  • The Hiding Place (biography) - added a "themes" section to the existing article. Although Pentecostalism is not mentioned in the text as such, some miraculous events occur, and ten Boom and her ghostwriters were/are Pentecostals.
  • Alexander Boddy
  • Derek Prince (not actually new, but I've just brought into this project)
  • Transformationalism
  • Colin Urquhart
  • Eddie Long Just added a previously existing article to the project. This pastor of a top mega-church is currently embroiled in a high profile sex scandal as well as a long term senate financial investigation but his biography did not belong to any clergy, Charismatic or Christianity related projects. Many of the available sources are from religious media sites and editors need assistance evaluating reliability, etc.
