The Major Players

John Wimber

Dominion Theology was espoused by John Wimber, who was networked through a group of churches called "The Vineyard Churches." Wimber's teaching was, in his words, "As believers, we are to take power over Satan and demons, we are to exercise dominion over them."

John Wimber, who died in 1997, coined the name “Joel’s Army,” defined as those who will overcome all opposition to the gospel and eventually subdue the nations.

C. Peter Wagner

Promoting prayer warfare activities are hyper-charismatics from the “signs and wonders” movement, which include self-anointed, self-appointed “apostles” and “prophets” who are preparing to govern the world through their “New Apostolic Reformation.”

This dominionist sect is a direct offshoot of the Latter Rain cult, also known as Joel’s Army or Manifest Sons of God. Chief architect of this movement for the past two decades is C. Peter Wagner, of Fuller Theological Seminary and President of Global Harvest Ministries and Chancellor of the Wagner Leadership Institute. Wagner was mentored by John Wimber.

His spiritual warfare teachings have been widely disseminated through mission networks such as AD 2000, which was closely associated with the Lausanne Movement. A prominent individual connected to this sect was Ted Haggard, the fallen head of the National Association of Evangelicals.

Rick Warren

Rick Warren has single-handedly accomplished more to bring about a joining of the three sects of Dominionism than any other individual. Warren received his doctorate from Fuller Theological Seminary under the tutelage of his advisor, C. Peter Wagner of the spiritual warfare Dominionists. He is presently embarking on an aggressive marketing campaign to set up a model of Peter Drucker’s “Healthy Society” in Rwanda, ostensibly under the banner of missionary and charitable endeavors.

Rick Warren has launched a grandiose plan to “transform” Africa – to “cure AIDS,” “end poverty,” and “fulfill the Great Commission.”

He easily moves in internationalist circles and aligns himself with rock stars, such as Bono. Warren has audaciously called for a “Second Reformation” based upon his global P.E.A.C.E. Plan, which is a study in Dominionism.

Warren’s charitable activities in AIDS relief may cloud the more serious Dominionist ramifications of his overall global plan. Warren intends to amass the world’s largest "volunteer army” of “one billion foot soldiers” to implement his global P.E.A.C.E. Plan.
