Shiloh University has named its Christian ministry degree programs the C. Peter Wagner School of Ministry. The C. Peter Wagner School of Ministry exists to ignite world changers in their calling to transform culture and impact lives. The School of Ministry provides training in leadership, compassionate ministry, and biblical studies. Students are instructed by qualified faculty who are experienced in Christian ministry as apostolic leaders, missionaries, pastoral caregivers, and teachers.
Leadership studies focus on the fivefold ministry as a biblical model of leadership in the body of Christ today (Ephesians 4:11-13). Our goal is to equip leaders, men and women who will make history while walking in their divine calling to strengthen and care for members of the Church, advance the outreach of the gospel of Christ through revival, and positively impact their communities and culture through reformation.
Compassionate ministry emphasizes the love of God in healing, deliverance, and pastoral care. Our goal is to equip servant-leaders whose focus of ministry is to bring the saving and healing work of Christ into the lives of those in need.
Biblical studies have their grounding in the person of Jesus Christ and in the Jewish background of the early church. The School of Ministry provides opportunity to study the Jewish foundations of Christianity, enhancing the understanding of Scripture and its application to life and ministry.
In 2020, Shiloh University began working with Wagner University to create additional accredited programs that merge practical equipping with academic scholarship to produce scholar-practitioners.
Additional programs are under development.
These three new programs situate the teachings of C. Peter Wagner and others into the progressive Christian stream of restoration and reformation. The ultimate goal is to equip Christ-centered leaders for evangelism, spiritual growth, and the transformation of culture.
Unique to these programs is a required residential training experience. These residentials are much like required chapel attendance at many traditional Bible colleges and seminaries. The purpose of these residential trainings is for students to hear and receive impartation from a variety of established practitioners—pastors, apostolic leaders, prophetic ministers, teachers, and leaders of cutting-edge ministries—who encompass various realms of influence. Past residential speakers have included Che Ahn, Cindy Jacobs, Shawn Bolz, Kris Vallotton, Brian Simmons, Patricia King, Bill Johnson, Doris Wagner, Mark Chironna, Chris Hayward, Bill Sudduth, Ken Fish, Rebecca Greenwood, David McDonald, Lance Wallnau, Harold Eberle, and Steve Chua.
