Lou Engle's "The Call Uganda" Reported but NAR Remains Under Radar

Wed May 05, 2010 at 08:50:49 AM EST
The New York Times covered Lou Engle's May 2 "The Call Uganda," pointing out that speakers at the event did indeed provide support for Uganda's proposed draconian anti-gay laws. However, the fact that Lou Engle is a major figure in a larger religious movement called the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) again escaped the notice of the mainstream press.  Engle was simply described as an "American evangelical."  Speakers at the event included Apostles John Mulinde and Julius Oyet, both stars in the NAR's "Transformation" series of movies which are advertised as shown to millions worldwide.  Both of these Ugandan apostles work extensively in the United States, including Mulinde's work training leaders of American college ministries through the Institute for Campus Revival and Awakening, held at Yale University.

These are not just anonymous American and Ugandan "evangelicals."  They belong to a specific movement with a clearly stated agenda that is rejected by many American evangelicals.


The New Apostolic Reformation is an effort to reorganize the Protestant church under the authority of the apostles and prophets of the movement and it is sometimes referred to as "Apostolic and Prophetic."  The movement has led a shift in evangelism efforts from saving souls one by one to "discipling" entire communities and nations.  Transformation is the buzz word that describes these efforts to "take territory" with the stated goal to ultimately take "Christian dominion" over government and society.  Part of this effort includes the use of spiritual warfare techniques such as spiritual mapping and networks of prayer warriors.

The apostles and prophets of the movement are making serious inroads into the American Religious Right and are demonstrating increased political clout in a number of nations in Africa, South American, and Asia.  The New York Times article did not reference the high profile and internationally broadcast appearances that Lou Engle has had with Republican leaders including Newt Gingrich, Mike Huckabee, Michelle Bachmann, Sam Brownback, and Jim DeMint, among others.

Lou Engle is a member of the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders, one of C. Peter Wagner's inner circles of leaders,.  The New Apostolic Reformation and its numerous "Transformation" entities have been involved in Uganda for well over a decade and advertise close ties to First Lady Janet Museveni and other political leaders as shown in Bruce Wilson's Transforming Uganda.   Lou Engle's claim that he did not know about the pending anti-gay laws becomes more difficult to believe when one understands that he is in the inner circle of leadership of an international movement that has been working to "transform" Uganda since the 1990s.

In Religion Dispatches, Michael Wilkerson describes the participation of Apostles John Mulinde and Julius Oyet and provides a valuable inside look at the event.  However, he makes no reference to the larger New Apostolic (NAR) movement in which the apostles are involved or their leading roles in the "Transformation" movies, produced by George Otis, Jr., founder of Sentinel Group and a pioneer of spiritual warfare techniques and spiritual mapping.

The "Transformation" movies, produced from 1999 to the present serve as promotional tools for the concept of taking Christian dominion, along with the "Reclaiming the Seven Mountains of Culture" campaign which is being promoted across the U.S.

Transformations II: The Glory Spreads featured Apostle John Mulinde of World Trumpet Ministries in a vignette on Uganda, and Mulinde has also been featured in a number of subsequent "Transformation" movies.  Apostle Julius Oyet was featured in "An Unconventional War," a full length movie on the transformation process in Uganda. These movies claim that Uganda is being supernaturally transformed through the expulsion of demons in society followed by Christian dominion over government and society.  In the movies this transformation is shown as including the supernatural healing of AIDS and success in warfare against the rebel Lord's Resistance Army based on the destruction of demonic altars.  

Those who wish to understand the current atmosphere in Uganda and the role that the New Apostolic movement has played, need to see the "Transformation" movies which included the participation of  President and First Lady Museveni and numerous government, military and religious leaders.  

The relationship between American Religious Right leaders and Uganda goes far beyond a few visits and presentations.  Apostle John Mulinde, for instance, has a U.S. branch of his ministry and is advertising his ministries' work with both the Orlando and Baltimore police forces. The Institute for Campus Revival and Awakening held at Yale University, was founded to bring about "transformation" on college campuses.  Their website features co-founder, Dale Schlafer, followed by Mulinde.  Scroll down a little further and you will see Mark Daniel, who heads Mulinde's U.S. ministry.  Note that Jeremy Story of Campus Renewal is in this group.  Story advertises his organization as having "pioneered spiritual mapping at campuses in America over 14 years. The Lausanne World Pulse reported that George Otis, Jr., producer of the "Transformation" movies, was part of the original 2006 faculty.

Apostle Julius Oyet works extensively with the College of Prayer, which is headquartered in the Atlanta suburbs and has branches in West Palm Beach and in Ontario, Canada. Oyet also speaks at "Marketplace Apostle" events in support of the Reclaiming the Seven Mountains of Culture campaign and has been advertised for conferences as an expert on the Government/Church Mountains.  Julius Oyet was recognized by the Ugandan Parliament when the anti-gay bill was initially introduced.

The inability of the press to label this group as anything other than "American evangelicals" allows the NAR to continue to fly under the radar.  Even identifying them simply as belonging to the neo-Charismatic or neo-Pentecostal stream of Christianity would aid readers in understanding the current internal struggles and shifts in evangelical leadership in both this country and globally.  

The international growth of the Charismatic/Pentecostal stream internationally has greatly increased their clout both religiously and politically in nations around the globe. This segment of Christianity is now estimated to be a mega-block of over 500 million people. The NAR's efforts have organized and streamlined the ideology of millions of the nondenominational Charismatic sector, although it has also drawn the participation of some pastors in Pentecostal denominations as well as Charismatics in other denominations including Mainline Protestant and even Roman Catholic Charismatics despite the movement's demonization of traditional Roman Catholicism.

The National Day of Prayer Task Force which will lead thousands of events on May 6, has many New Apostolics at its helm, including Presiding Apostle C. Peter Wagner who has also served as a strategy leader for the Lausanne Committee on World Evangelization and AD 2000 and Beyond. The Global Day of Prayer, which will be held on May 23, was founded by Graham Power, head of Transformation Africa and a member of the International Council of ITN (International Transformation Network) led by Apostle Ed Silvoso and Francis Oda.

Although they would like to claim that they define American evangelicalism, the New Apostolics do not represent all evangelicals, and their growing clout and "dominionist" agenda is extremely controversial thoughout the fundamentalist and conservative evangelical world. The NAR is a sectarian movement that refuses to label itself as a denomination because their goal is unification of the church under the authority of their leadership, and the eradication of denominational divides in preparation for the end times.  

The movement is in direct conflict with many evangelicals, the vast majority of Protestant denominations, the Roman Catholic Church, and certainly with all non-Christian religions. The NAR does not represent all American evangelicals or even all conservative evangelicals. As the NAR's "Transformation" entities form religious/political entities in state after state, it is becoming increasingly necessary to be able to make this distinction.
