Kathyrn Khulman was a popular faith healer and evangelist that took the world by storm especially during the 1970s and had a TV show called "I Believe in Miracles". One of Pentecostalism's most shiniest stars during that era, Benny Hinn ever wrote a book about her called "Kathryn Kuhlman: Her Spiritual Legacy and Its Impact on My Life" and credited her extreme impact on his later ministries.
Kathyrn Khulman was one of the greatest promoters of the one world ecumenical movement and unity with Rome and in many ways helped to set up Pentecostals today who hold an ecumenical view of Rome. She had many nuns and priests invited on her TV show, and even her biographer wrote
"She had a special love for doctors, and wanted them either on the stage or on the front rows of the auditorium. The same was true of priests and nuns — especially if they were ‘in uniform’. Nothing thrilled Kathryn more than to have thirty or forty Catholic clergymen, especially if they wore clerical collars or, better yet, cassocks, sitting behind her while she ministered. Somehow it seemed to lend authenticity to what she was doing — and helped create the proper climate of a trust and understanding which was so necessary for a miracle service." (Daughter Of Destiny, p. 221.)
Some would report this too:
"Kathryn had but one pass through Las Vegas, and she would deliver the gospel with power! Hundreds of people in Las Vegas as well as the faithful in Youngstown, Pittsburgh, and Franklin had agreed to pray that the Holy Spirit would stir the city. Not far away a Roman Catholic priest said a Mass for the meeting the day before." (The Woman Behind The Miracles, pp. 229-230.)
Anyhow like any good "daughter" of Rome, she made her homage and visit to the Pope as well. By the way, wearing of black is a sign of submission to the papacy.
Now how does this all connect with Calvary Chapel? In the early years of the Jesus People Movement, Khulman gave her "blessing" as it were to Chuck Smith, Duane Peterson and Lonnie Frisbee, on her TV show "I believe in Miracles". A DVD of this has even been put on sale online and ebay.

By the way, this is just one connection and initial endorsement that is questionable: more on the early history of the Jesus Movement and Calvary Chapel will be forthcoming on this blog.
