THE LIFE OF DONALD MCGAVRAN: GROWING STRONGER
Talbot School of Theology
The 1980s were the major growth years of the Church Growth
Movement in the USA. Win Arn’s Institute for American Church Growth
reached its zenith, and the School of World Mission at Fuller continued
to promote Church Growth thinking. Peter Wagner gradually took over
the primary role as professor of church growth, as McGavran reduced his
teaching load. The issue of what is the primary goal of mission—social
justice or evangelism—continued to be one of McGavran’s major concerns.
