Critiquing the New Apostolic Reformation

Part 2 of a two-part conversation with Dr. Allen Tennison

George P Wood on April 13, 2023


In Episode 310 of the Influence Podcast, I talked with Dr. Allen Tennison about the New Apostolic Reformation. We focused on describing the four distinctive theological doctrines and practices of that movement.

In this episode, we are going to take a more critical look at those doctrines and practices.

The central claim of the New Apostolic Reformation is that the contemporary church needs to be led by apostles and prophets. Other doctrines and practices are associated with the movement, but that seems to be what really drives the movement.

As classical Pentecostals, Dr. Tennison and I have a perspective on these NAR claims, which we want to share with you.

I’m George P. Wood, executive editor of Influence magazine and your host.

Dr. Allen Tennison is dean of the College of Church Leadership and professor of theology at North Central University in Minneapolis, Minnesota. An Assemblies of God minister, he also chairs the AG’s Commission on Doctrines and Practices.
