Pastor Chad Wagner

Pastor Chad Wagner grew up just a little ways away in Sparta, WI.  He was blessed to grow up in a Christian family and as a result, accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior, at the young age of 10.  Chad never thought he would be a Pastor but God kept working on him until he surrendered to that calling in 1992.  Chad is committed to preaching and teaching the Word of God faithfully, shepherding the people of God with much prayer and grace, and allowing the Holy Spirit to lead himself and his flock.


 He is a graduate of Pillsbury Baptist Bible (93) and Central Baptist Theological Seminary (98).  He became the Pastor of Lighthouse Baptist in January of  2004.  Prior to coming to Lighthouse, he served as a youth pastor in Brooklyn Park, MN and as Church planter in Seattle, WA.  Chad has been married, to his wife Mary for 25+ years and they have four children; Savannah, Darby, Ricky and Michal.  Chad enjoys to fish, drink coffee and carry on a love-hate relationship with the Minnesota Vikings.  In his free-time, he is pursuing a doctoral degree at Central Seminary in Minneapolis, MN.
