In 1981 Wagner replaced McGavran as head of the faculty. Wagner retired from his position there in 1998 to focus on his own areas of ministry.
In 1982 Wagner teamed up with John Wimber, a founder of the Vineyard Movement, to create a new course at Fuller called "Signs, Wonders and Church Growth". Since that point, Wagner has been formally associated with Charismatic teaching and theology. Wagner describes himself as a Charismatic Evangelical. During the 1990s he also taught a Sunday School class with a strong focus on the charismatic gifts, known as "120 Fellowship", at Lake Avenue Church in Pasadena, California.
