    Biography/Administrative History

    MC510 Signs and Wonders was a course that took place at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, CA from 1982-1985 under the leadership of John Wimber and C. Peter Wagner. The course was approved in Fall 1981 and given the name “Signs, Wonders, & Church Growth.” In Summer 1983, the name was changed to “Healing Ministry and Church Growth.” The name changed again in Winter 1984 to “The Miraculous in Church Growth.” MC510 drew attention from students, faculty, and outside sources (such as Christian Life Magazine). The growing reputation was largely due to the particular teachings on miraculous healing and in-class practice of praying for the sick. Controversy surrounded the course in its few short years. As a result, a task force of 10 members (including Wagner and Paul Pierson, the Dean of the School of World Mission) was assembled to evaluate and respond to feedback. In January 1986, Pierson announced the discontinuation of MC510.
