Founder of New Apostolic Reformation Movement C. Peter Wagner Passes at 86
Charles Peter (C. Peter) Wagner went home to be with the Lord Friday, October 21. He was 86 years old. Wagner was the author of over 70 books, the president of Global Harvest Ministries from 1993 to 2011 and is served as the chancellor emeritus of Wagner Leadership Institute until his home going. The Wagner leadership Institute trains leaders for Christian ministry. Wagner also is credited with founding the New Apostolic Reformation, a movement with Christendom with a belief that the lost offices of church leadership including apostle and prophet are being restored to the church today.
Wagner was a Christian theologian, missiologist, missionary, writer, teacher, and church growth specialist. Wagner became widely known for his work and writings on spiritual warfare including what he called the three levels of spiritual warfare:
“Ground-level” involves casting demons out of individuals; “occult-level warfare” involves more organized “powers of darkness” and “strategic-level warfare” directly “confronts ‘territorial spirits’ assigned by Satan to coordinate activities over a geographical area.”
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 ending in 2001..
Chuck Pierce said this regarding Wagner, "One of the greatest molders of modern church history, Dr. C. Peter Wagner, fully transitioned into the presence of the LORD at 2:30 PM today, October 21, 2016. Please keep Doris and the rest of the family in your prayers. When more details become available, we will share them with you."
Joseph Mattera wrote this, "Dr Wagner pushed my first book " ruling in the gates"- all over the world! He promoted whoever and whatever he thought was cutting edge! He paved the way for me and many others in the apostolic movement. His voice will be sorely missed!"
