Kairos sprang from the Cursillo movement and is supported by volunteers from the 4th Day movements such as Cursillo, National Episcopal Cursillo, Presbyterian Cursillo, Lutheran Via de Cristo, The Upper Room's Walk To Emmaus, and independently ecumenical Tres Dias as well as volunteers from independent and non-denominational churches.

Kairos volunteers are encouraged to participate in a 4th Day weekend of their choice.  Some opportunities in Kansas are:

Wichita Cursillo

Kansas City Cursillo

Episcopal Cursillo for Kansas

Lutheran Via de Cristo (national website)

Kansas Walk to Emmaus

Kansas City Tres Dias

Please visit our friends' websites and learn about their ministries.  If you have not already experienced a 4th Day weekend, choose one and find out how you can participate.  You will be blessed!
