Connect with Mark:
Mark Wagner is the lead pastor at Westsong. He is a fourth generation pastor with the Salvation Army. He holds the rank of Major.
Mark uses Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to interact with people both inside and outside his church. He links friends and followers to his weekly eNewsletter, also available on his website, in order to connect people with upcoming events. He uses elements from the eNewsletter in his weekly church bulletin (hard copy). His weekly podcast ran for a number of years, but is now on hold. He has also used Skype and Messenger to do video coaching. Sometimes he even phones people … or has coffee with them.
Through years of study (BTh, BA, MA, MDiv, STM, DMin) he has developed a passion for helping people understand what the Bible is saying and what it has to do with us! He is committed to planting and pastoring new, vibrant churches for the 21st century.
In his spare time, he enjoys hiking the coastal trails of Vancouver Island, making music and dabbling in technology.
