C. Peter Wagner
Peter Wagner is the President of the Global Harvest Ministries and Chancellor of the Wagner Leadership Institute. Established in 1998, the Institute equips men and women for leadership positions in churches and translocal ministries. It is designed especially, but not exclusively, to meet the needs of leaders who have become a part of the New Apostolic reformation. Missions have been a watermark of Peter’s career. From 1956 to 1971, he and his wife Doris served as missionaries in Bolivia under the South American Mission and Andes Evangelical Mission (now SIM International).
In 1971, Peter Wagner became a Professor of Church Growth at Fuller Theological Seminary School of World Missions. During his 30-year tenure at Fuller ending in 2001, he had the privilege to teach students from nearly every country in the world.
To advance the role of missions in church growth, Peter Wagner has served on several mission oriented ministries, committees, and organizations. His memberships include: Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization (1974-1989); American Society of Missiology; Society for Scientific Study of Religion; Association of Professors of Mission; Evangelical Missiological Society; American Society for Church Growth (founding president); and the American Lausanne Committee.
For about two decades, Peter Wagner has been associated with several global movements of the Holy Spirit. This exciting journey began back in 1982, when he and John Wimber, founder of the Vineyard Christian Fellowship, co-instructed the course “Signs, Wonders and Church Growth” at Fuller Seminary. His outspoken advocacy of praying for the sick, spiritual mapping, identificational repentance, the ministry and role of apostles and prophets in the church today, and demonic deliverance have identified Peter as a pioneer in the arena of spiritual warfare. One of his most significant contributions so far has been his relentless effort to promote strategic and effective prayer.
During the decade of the 1990s Wagner assumed a leadership role in what became known as the New Apostolic Reformation. He became the Presiding Apostle of the International Coalition of Apostles (ICA) and also founded a more intimate group for apostolic alignment, Eagles Vision Apostolic Team (EVAT). In the 2000s, he began to move strongly in promoting the Dominion Mandate for social transformation, adopting the template of the Seven Mountains or the 7-M Mandate for practical implementation.
Peter’s education includes: B.S. Rutgers University (summa cum laude), 1952 M.Div. Fuller Theological Seminary, 1955 Th.M. Princeton Theological Seminary, 1962 M.A. Fuller Seminary School of World Mission (Missiology), 1968 Ph.D. University of Southern California (Social Ethics), 1977 Peter has written over 70 books. Peter and Doris have three adult children, nine grandchildren, and three great grandchildren. The Wagners reside in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Bethel to Feature Bob Jones at Upcoming Prophetic Conference
In an advertisement on Bethel’s website is an upcoming “prophetic conference” – Piercing The Darkness – to be held at Bill Johnson’s Bethel Church February 23 – 25, 2011. Featured speakers are Bob Jones, Joseph Garlington, Graham Cooke and Bethel’s own Kris Vallotton. This blog post will focus on dangerous false prophet Bob Jones.
Yes, false prophet. I do not state these words lightly. This is stated not just because some of his “prophetic words” with specific parameters have proven false – even though this is true. It is said because, in addition, some of his “words” are downright anti-Biblical, not just extra-Biblical. So, who is Bob Jones? Here’s the blurb from the upcoming conference:
“When only seven years old and walking on a dirt road in Arkansas; the Arch Angel [sic] Gabriel appeared to Bob Jones on a white horse and blew a double silver trumpet in his face. He then threw an old bull skin mantle at Bob’s feet. Although fearful at the time he ran, however, many years later he returned to pick up that old mantle which is that of a Seer Prophet. Bob Jones is known as a contemporary prophet with a great love for the Lord Jesus and His truth. His prophesies have spanned over four decades as the Lord has enabled him to foretell earthquakes, tidal waves, comets and weather patterns. Like Daniel who functioned at an incredible level, Bob has often told leaders their dreams and experiences, as well as their interpretation.
“After his death experience in 1975 God sent him back to minister to church leadership and reach the multitudes with His love, truth and equipping the saints with understanding of the spiritual gifts. God promised Bob that he would see the beginning of one billion souls coming into the kingdom in one great wave of the end time harvest.
“Bob moves with a clear revelatory gifting, accompanied by gifts of healing and miracles.” [all as per original]
PROPHETIC MOVEMENT in AN UPROAR – Please Forward – Andrew Strom
PROPHETIC MOVEMENT in AN UPROAR – Please Forward -Andrew Strom.
Earlier this week we published big chunks of Dennis Cramer’s “Word for 2011” in which he basically tears into a lot of the flakey and dangerous “New Age”- type practices found in today’s Prophetic movement. Well, to my great amazement, I found that the Elijah List had actually published Cramer’s piece as well! And it caused such a storm that they had to remove it after just one day – for “clarification”! But then they re-published it – only slightly changed!
For those who don’t know, the Elijah List is the main email List for the Prophetic movement – publishing the likes of Todd Bentley, Patricia King, Rick Joyner, Bob Jones, etc. It also sells mounds of their books and CD’s. For the Elijah List to publish something that basically refutes all the “Spirit Travel” and “Third Heaven Visitation” stuff is simply unbelievable. It would almost be like the Pope refuting the veneration of Mary!
I don’t know what the Elijah List was thinking, but I’m sure glad they did it. Now maybe there’s a chance that some of their readers will get out from under those dangerous deceptions.
But I am left a bit dazed by it all – because the very ones who have been advocating “spirit travel AT WILL” and “Trance dancing” and ‘Third Heaven visits AT WILL’ are the very ministries that the Elijah List has been promoting all these years!
Here is what the Elijah List founder Steve Schultz wrote after they pulled the first article when it caused such a storm- “Dear Elijah List Readers, There was a huge number of people who were unclear on a few issues with Dennis Cramer’s word…
The most controversial aspect was the “AT WILL” issue. Apparently, there are some out and about who are teaching that you can transport or go to Heaven “AT WILL” – i.e. whenever you want. This is truly not taught in Scripture. The word “Doctrine” is another word for “teaching.” It’s an untrue teaching that anytime you want, you can go to Heaven or be transported… As soon as Dennis Cramer sends us a more in-depth explanation of the items he listed, we plan to repost my friend’s word.”
ANDREW AGAIN: Steve – I’m so glad you wrote this, but do you truly realize what you are saying? Don’t you know that Bob Jones and Todd Bentley and Patricia King, etc, are the VERY BIGGEST promoters of all this “AT WILL” deception that you are talking about?
Patricia King even has a whole movement of “Ekstasis” Trance dancing! These guys have entire reams of teaching on how to “visualize” your way into the Third Heaven ‘AT WILL’. They have been promoting it for years. Surely you know this? That’s why your readers are so upset. Dennis Cramer is finally exposing and rebuking this stuff as the ‘New Age’ heresy that it really is.
On January 15, Elijah List reposted the “re-clarified” word from Dennis Cramer on their website. It was a little softer in places, but still it said the following very clearly:
“One cannot go to Heaven like Paul or be transported physically like Phillip simply because they want to or because they feel like it (at will). Teachings like this often crossover into dangerous methods and techniques that resemble New Age, Mysticism, Spiritism or other occult manipulative practices. A Believer cannot and must not force, manipulate, or otherwise attempt to reproduce a sovereign supernatural Bible experience by merely following a method, a series of steps, or worst of all “willing it” to happen.”
In the same re-posted word, Dennis Cramer went on to say-
“• Open Heaven/Spiritual Portals = BAD DOCTRINE • Third Heaven Experiences At Will = BAD DOCTRINE • Going to Heaven At Will to Get Your Gifts = BAD DOCTRINE • Transporting Physically At Will = BAD DOCTRINE • Over-Emphasis on Angels and Specifically Arc-Angels = BAD DOCTRINE • Going into Trances At Will = BAD DOCTRINE • Trance Dancing = BAD DOCTRINE • Hyper-Grace: Christians Do Not Need to Repent of Sin = BAD DOCTRINE”
Well – there goes the Prophetic movement!!
Seriously – I cannot believe they posted this on the Elijah List!
Steve – This is exactly all the stuff your followers have gotten into!
Most of the guys you promote – these are the exact ‘New Age’-type practices that they teach! Surely you know this?
So now, to finish this article, I need some “clarification” from Steve Schultz. I am very encouraged by this apparent change of heart, Steve, but I need to know if you will now CEASE forthwith any and all publication of the materials and teachings of these people – until they publicly repent and apologize for this ‘New Age’ heresy. And I need to know if you – Steve Schultz – will now publicly renounce the promotion of these deceptive preachers around the world. (Sorry to be so blunt about it, but we really need to hear this from you).
I am so glad that you published Cramer’s piece. But now we really need to know where Elijah List stands – and whether things have truly changed or not. We look forward to your reply.
And I ask everyone reading this to please forward it to your Charismatic friends. People need to know that this stuff is finally being declared as “BAD DOCTRINE” – even by the Elijah List itself.
Please let everyone know, so this deception can be stopped. You would be amazed how widespread it is.
