WLI History and Mission

Founded in 1998, WLI reflects a new paradigm and a unique approach to training for practical ministry.  Students learn in a creative, revelatory atmosphere of teaching, impartation and activation with opportunity for hands-on practical ministry application and ministry. WLI provides the highest level of training and spiritual impartation through a successful faculty of internationally known leaders who walk and minister powerfully out of the five-fold ascension gifts.

WLI Statement of Faith

Wagner Leadership Institute positions itself in the evangelical theological stream of Protestant Christianity.  We adhere to the Apostles’ Creed and to the core doctrines of the Protestant Reformation, namely the ultimate and essential authority of the Scriptures for Christian faith and practice, justification by faith, and the priesthood of all believers.  It believes that God is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, that Jesus was born of a virgin, that He was physically raised from the dead, and that an individual’s personal relationship to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior determines that individual’s eternal destiny in heaven or in hell.  The fulfillment of Jesus’ Great Commission to make disciples of all nations is central to the focus of Wagner Leadership Institute.

WLI Core Values

The Day of the Saints – WLI believes in the ministry of the saints, meaning every believer is called to do the work of God’s kingdom, whether in the church, workplace or other individual spheres of influence.  There is no dividing line between the pulpit and pew – we are one in the Body of Christ.

Impartation & Activation – WLI training includes equipping students with knowledge and revelation and anointing them to go forth in power.  This impartation comes from God and flows through our seasoned faculty (mothers and fathers in the Kingdom), who minister to students out of their ascension gifts.  As impartation occurs, we are dedicated to activating and releasing students in the flow of God’s anointing.

Maturity – Our goal is for all students to be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ, as demonstrated by the degree to which we express His character, power and love.  We recognize spiritual maturity and becoming more like Christ is a process.  We seek to grow in a deeper, more intimate walk with the Lord, knowing we are perfected, transformed and matured in His presence.

Spirit of Excellence – Our desire is to glorify God in all we do by serving the Body of Christ with a Spirit of Kingdom excellence as we advance God’s Kingdom here on earth.
