|Pastor Herman Otten worked closely with Agent X, aka Waldo Werning,|
and heavily promoted Valleskey's Church Growth textbook.
| According to Herman Otten, the ideal pastor|
goes to Fuller Seminary and kneels at the feet of Pete Wagner.
"For several years I've been a Pete Wagner fan. Although I don't see eye to eye with him on many important theological points (he approves of faith healing and speaking in tongues as long as it promotes church growth and he comes from a Billy Graham decision for conversion doctrinal background), he is the most eloquent spokesman of the Church Growth Movement. A prolific author on mission/evangelism/church growth subjects, Wagner is also an excellent teacher and a crystal clear writer."
