C. Peter Wagner, Pioneer in the Apostolic Movement and Pioneering Fighter Against Theology of Integral Mission, Goes on to Glory

By JulioSevero
C. Peter Wagner, pioneer in the apostolic movement and pioneering fighter against Theology of Integral Mission (TIM), has gone home to be with the Lord. He was 86 years old, passing away on Friday.
C. Peter Wagner

Wagner was recognized as a leading authority in the fields of church growth and spiritual warfare. He was co-founder of World Prayer Center and was chancellor of the Wagner Institute in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He held graduate degrees in theology, missiology and religion from Fuller Theological Seminary, Princeton Theological Seminary and the University of Southern California.

Wagner served as a field missionary in Bolivia for 16 years and he taught on the faculty of the School of Intercultural Studies at Fuller Seminary for 30 years. He ministered extensively nationally and internationally from his home base in Colorado. He had written 70 books, including Prayer Shield, Territorial Spirits, and Apostles and Prophets.
He was an autobiography titled “Wrestling with Alligators, Prophets and Theologians: Lessons from a Lifetime in the Church — A Memoir,” kindly sent autographed by him to me years ago.
Wagner became famous as the leader of conservative theologians who opposed to left-wing theologians in the first Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization in 1974. He fought TIM not only in Lausanne, but also in the first René Padilla congresses in Latin America, years before Lausanne. He was the first theologian to make resistance to TIM in Latin America.
In 2014, Lausanne paid Wagner’s resistance back in the same coin, by holding in Brazil a meeting of Lausanne leaders against Wagner and his apostolic movement. The meeting was led by TIM leaders, especially Rev. Valdir Steuernagel.
In 2013, C. Peter Wagner wrote the introduction of Julio Severo’s e-book “Theology of Liberation versus Theology of Integral Mission” (available for free download in this LINK), which addresses Theology of Integral Mission.
