Abstract:How did a California dairy man change modern global Christianity? This dissertation focuses on the life of Demos Shakarian and his contribution to the modern Christian Charismatic movement. As such, this document serves as a narrative biography that analyzes the history and context of Shakarian's life by examining the various religious, economic, and sociologic influences that shaped his life and context. Shakarian's religious background included his Armenian ancestors; their interaction with a group of pneumatic Russian Molokans and early Pentecostal Christians at the Azusa Street Mission; his association with healing evangelists such as Oral Roberts, William Branham, and Tommy Hicks; and Shakarian's leadership as the founder of the Full Gospel Business Man's Fellowship International. Demos' broader religious context was also likely influenced by other religious movements such as the Latter Rain movement of 1948, the formation of ecumenical organizations such as the World Council of Churches and the Pentecostal Fellowship of North America, and the eschatological fervor in some Christian communities created by the formation of the modern state of Israel. Shakarian's economic and sociologic context included his ancestor's immigration from Karakala, Armenia to Los Angeles, California in 1905; his origins in poverty as a young child living in Downey, California; and the rapid growth of his father's dairy herd, eventually becoming the largest privately owned dairy herd in the world. Added to Shakarian's immediate context as a dairyman in Southern California were the broader issues of WWII; the rapid economic growth of the dairy industry during and after WWII; and the economical, sociological, and political shift after WWII that led to the popular appeal and rapid growth of the Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship International. Despite financial challenges Demos Shakarian faced later in his life and theological, ecclesiological, and ethical challenges the Charismatic movement faced in the 1980s; Shakarian's ecumenical outlook, his irrepressible optimism, his eschatological urgency, his pneumatic emphasis, and his personable nature allowed Demos to remain a prominent leader in the Charismatic movement and the emerging neo-Charismatic movement until his death in 1993.
