One of the featured speaker is Rev. Dennis Peacock, a longtime theocratic activist, whose organization Strategic Christian Services says it brings a "Biblical Worldview" to business.
In a recent column posted on his web site, Peacock attributes the nation's problems to "our increasingly anti-Christ culture where secular humanism has gutted our cultural morality and worldview with a perjurious historical revisionism worthy of the Hitlers and Stalins whose ambitions we claim to have not only defeated but transcended."
Peacock was a founder and leader of the Coalition on Revival, which led a series of theological conversations in the 1980s that have been pivotal in animating, and setting the more decisively theocratic direction of the Christian Right.

...By the mid-1970s, scores of "sheep" were reporting that the shepherds were demanding large amounts of cash in the form of tithes, and that they had to consult the shepherd before buying a car, taking medicine, applying for a job, and the like.(1) HNM and Peacocke are part of the Christian Right and Peacocke has been called "one of the most significant behind the scenes operators" of the Christian Right.(2) Author Sara Diamond, the foremost writer on this movement, sees shepherding as a strategic form of political organization as well.(2) Countries: HNM and Dennis Peacocke are stationed in the US although it has been reported that Peacocke makes frequent trips to Central America and Mexico.(2) Funding: HNM's (and the shepherding movement's) most likely source of funding is that of the tithes received from parishioners.

The head of COR, Jay Grimstead, believes that all facets of life should be Christianized--"in order to rule the entire society for Christ."(2) Peacocke produces a weekly television program called "The Bottom Line" for the Family Christian Broadcasting Network in California.
Author Sara Diamond later found out that "Bob" is actually one of Peacocke's
"sheep," the Rev. Michael Bresnan.(1) It has been reported that Peacocke
and Bresnan make frequent trips to Central America.Peacocke
taught several seminars for "selected third world leaders" in a four-week training institute sponsored by Chapel Hill Harvester Church of Atlanta, Georgia
.This training institute was in support of CNPEN
, a conservative evangelical organization active in Nicaragua.CNPEN
has drawn criticism because, as reported in a 1986 Washington Post article, it is the primary conduit through which the "U.S. embassy in Managua coordinates anti-government Nicaraguan Protestants."(1,3) Peacocke
and Bresnan visit CNPEN headquarters frequently and bring the group money for daily operation as well as traveling expenses for selected CNPEN members.(3) Private Connections: Alive and Free's foreign policy adviser, Donald McAlvany, publishes the McAlvany Intelligence Advisor, a magazine that reports on the "atrocities" of the African National Congress

From Dennis Peacocke's promotional material on his "Discipling the Nations: A practical path to obedience" seminars can be found the following blurb:
To understand this gobbledygook requires that one immerses oneself in Peacocke's
aberrant theologies and ideologies, which is not recommended.
However, this quotation is instructive in illustrating the dominionist worldview.
multi-pronged ministries' focus is on changing worldviews, global economic and governance structures -- particularly through marketplace ministries.
2003 article, Co-Managing the Earth," Peacocke
has explained this further:
outlined 3 phases of this "movement" to "co-manage" the Earth by shifting worldviews:
Second, Dennis Peacocke
is listed among C. Peter Wagner's leading "apostles" of the earth on the International Coalition of Apostles
has always spanned both the dominionist (and patriotic) Reconstructionists as well as the Latter Rain (NAR) dominionists.
This book is connected with the marketplace transformation movement of C. Peter Wagner, Ed Silvoso, Kent Humphreys, Os Hillman, Dennis Peacocke
(see yesterday's post) and others in the International Coalition of Apostles
"Discipling Our Nation" seminars with an appeal to patriotic dominionism.
quickly shifts gears in his
program to a "discipling our nations" seminar -- with an emphasis on the plural "nations.
The agenda to restore a Christian America, which appeals to many patriotic Christians and brings them to his
conferences, turns into an international kingdom-building "mandate.
is adept at this bait and switch.
The goal to restore America to a moral country, suddenly switches gears to a "dominion mandate" to transform the nations of the world, sphere by sphere, culture by culture, nation by nation -- until an international order is built.
mentioned in Monday's post (4/10/06), Dennis Peacocke
has uniquely positioned himself the past twenty years as a bridge between the charismatic and the patriotic dominionists.
He is a high level "apostle" in C. Peter Wagner's New Apostolic Reformation, listed among the members of the International Coalition of Apostles.
And he has always been a respected member of the Reconstructionist camp, as a leader of the Coalition on Revival.
As a salesman, he has slickly wrapped his ministries in a style that encompassed both dominionist camps so that each felt that he was part of their own.
The history of his
various ministries is described in the promotional brochure cited in the quote above.
is connected with Business Reform magazine
cited in the first quote above.
has Strategic Life Training course on dominionist worldview training, and a Business Leadership School
which teaches the marketplace ministry "kingdom" model.
has gone global with international partnerships all over the world to train businessmen in the dominionism worldview.
Most surprisingly, Peacocke
has been able to exist comfortably within the Christian Reconstructionist camp without any known opposition to his
dual role as an "apostle" in the New Apostolic Reformation.
Perhaps this silence is due to the fact that he
has been able to promulgate the doctrines of Theonomy (Reconstructionism) very effectively to a wide spectrum of mainstream evangelicalism.
As such, he
is one of the best salesmen that the Theonomists have on board.

Strategic Life Training, a 2-year intensive course in worldview training, contains these words:
