11 Page 6 Fellowships and networks are impermanent structures. They are sometimes not much more than relationships based on friendships. Many new ones have probably emerged since this writing. In the language of our time, they say something about marketing new expressions of charismatic Christianity, diversifying religious firms, and circulating funds. Given the holistic orientation of charismatic Christianity, it is not surprising to learn that most fellowships have overseas connections. For example, the publications of Christian Growth Ministries, especially those of its founders Bob Mumford (1930 ), Derek Prince (1915 ), Don Basham (19261989), and Charles Simpson (1937 ) were mentioned by founders of South African independent churches, especially the leaders of the International Fellowship of Christian Churches, Ray McCauley (1949 ) and Ed Roebert (1939 ) (McCauley 1987; Roebert 1987, 1989).

KARLA POEWE *Charismatics are people who see themselves as having surrendered their lives to Christ. They are baptized in the Holy Spirit and, therefore, exercise one or several of these gifts. When genuine, they "literally reproduce the traits of primitive piety" (Gordon 1905 : 38). The word charismatic is retained even though some Christians, who are appalled by the abuses and excesses of televangelists, have ceased to use it as a term of self-reference. Televangelists, who are a relatively new breed of spiritual entrepreneurs, have used glossy marketing to transform genuine religion into expensive television illusions.
