We're a different kind ofChristian University.


Founded in 1998 by C. Peter Wagner, WU reflects a new paradigm for unique training in practical ministry. Unlike traditional seminaries, WU focuses on equipping ‘in-service’ leaders with a creative, revelatory style of teaching and learning, as well as impartation and activation, with opportunity for hands-on, practical application and ministry.

Wagner University:

Our Story


Inspired in 1998 by a prophetic word from Cindy Jacobs, C. Peter Wagner, built upon his legacy of developing world changers by creating Wagner Leadership Institute (WLI). In 2010 Dr. Wagner appointed Dr. Che Ahn as the International Chancellor and under his leadership WLI spread into numerous regional schools throughout the U.S. and into 11 nations. In 2017, WLI became Wagner University (WU). Today, Dr. Che Ahn continues to lead WU into a new paradigm for unique training in practical ministry.
