About the Instructor

Lance Wallnau

Lance Wallnau is a best selling author, speaker, and business consultant.  

Lance Wallnau, a prominent figure in evangelical circles, gained national attention when USA Today identified him as one of only three evangelical leaders who accurately predicted Donald Trump’s presidency right from the onset of the campaign. His bestselling book, God’s Chaos Candidate, became a catalyst in influencing 3-5 million undecided evangelical voters through its broadcasts and viral media.

Facing skepticism from left-wing news outlets, Lance’s bold prediction that Trump would be a modern-day Cyrus found vindication on March 5, 2018, when Prime Minister Netanyahu personally thanked President Trump in the White House for his historic embassy decision, drawing parallels between Trump and the biblical figure Cyrus. The New York Times even pondered, “Could Trump be God’s Cyrus?” quoting Lance Wallnau.

Beyond his prophetic insights, Lance is an innovator who introduced the concept of the “Seven Mountains of Culture” as a fresh template for understanding how the church should engage with culture in the 21st century. His strategic thinking, futurist vision, and compelling communication style have positioned him on platforms alongside notable figures such as Ben Carson, Mike Pompeo, and bestselling authors Ken Blanchard and John Maxwell.

Having conducted training sessions for the United Nations and spoken at prestigious institutions like Harvard, the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, and the London School of Theology, Lance Wallnau’s influence extends across a diverse global tapestry. With a background spanning thirty years in consulting for businesses and non-profits, his students include individuals from various sectors, including governments, CEOs, entertainers, and entrepreneurs.

Currently directing the Lance Learning Group, a strategic teaching and consulting company based in Dallas, Texas, Lance continues to be a thought leader and influencer, providing clarity on complex issues impacting faith and culture through his role as a social media influencer. The Lance Learning Group serves as a global network connecting business, entertainment, ministry, and government leaders, solidifying Lance Wallnau’s impact on a broad spectrum of societal domains.

He holds a Doctor of Ministry from Phoenix University of Theology.
