Charismatic Revival Fury, Ep 1: January 6th and the New Apostolic Reformation

This is the first episode in our new series – Charismatic Revival Fury: The New Apostolic Reformation, written and created by Dr. Matthew Taylor.

In this episode, Matthew traces the beginning of the NAR to C. Peter Wagner, a former missionary and seminary professor who spent the last part of his life cultivating what he believed to be a new apostolic age in the life of the church. Wagner wanted to go beyond denominations to a new Reformation – one in which modern day apostles and prophets used their spiritual gifts to guide their congregations. Wagner developed a network of charismatic young leaders who he believed would lead the church into its next era. And twenty years later, these apostles and prophets did just that – by forming the background of Christian Trumpism and leading the charge on J6.
