St. Benedict's Episcopal School (STBS) is excited to announce The Rev. David Wagner (Chaplain Wagner) as the new Middle School Chaplain. Chaplain Wagner's appointment will begin on Tuesday, January 16, 2024.
Chaplain Wagner has demonstrated exemplary service in previous roles. Before this latest appointment, Chaplain Wagner served as the Middle School Chaplain at Holy Innocents' Episcopal School from August 2016 to the present. His previous roles include Priest in Charge at Emmaus House Episcopal Chapel from June 2019 to August 2021 and Summer School Old Testament Teacher at The Westminster Schools. Additionally, he held the position of Associate Priest for Youth and Young Adult Ministries at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, Atlanta, GA, from July 2014 to July 2016. Chaplain Wagner brings a wealth of experience and commitment to his new role, showcasing his dedication to serving the community and fostering spiritual growth.
"I am thrilled to have this opportunity to join you as your Middle School Chaplain in the coming weeks," said The Rev. David Wagner. "Since 2016, I have worked as the Middle School Chaplain at Holy Innocents' Episcopal School in Sandy Springs. In my time there, I've had the blessing of seeing, hearing, and learning so much about students' thoughtful insights and questions about God, faith, spirituality, the Bible, religions, and more. Whether in the classroom, in the Chapel, or around campus, I'm excited to have those kinds of conversations with y'all as we learn and wonder together about what God is doing in the world and how God calls us all to live as neighbors to one another. I am so excited that God is leading me to St. Benedict's as the next step in my journey."
This appointment follows The Rev. Edgar Otera's departure to become the new Rector of Christ Church, Norcross. We extend our best wishes for his successful new beginning and eagerly anticipate the upcoming journey with Chaplain Wagner.
