We are privileged today to bring you this interview with Dr. Bill Wagner. Dr. Wagner is another of the candidates who will be nominated for President of the Southern Baptist Convention when we meet in Indianapolis this June.
In an article from Baptist Press, we have learned that Dr. Wagner formerly was a professor of missions at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary and before that an International Mission Board missionary for 31 years in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. He served as SBC first vice president from 2003-04. He also is the pastor of a small San Francisco-area church, Snyder Lane Baptist, and the author of the 2004 book, “How Islam Plans to Change the World,” published by Kregel. He says he has a passion for reaching Muslims with the Gospel.
Baptist Press also reported that Dr. Wagner received his bachelor’s degree from the University of New Mexico and his master of divinity degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Texas. He also holds a doctor of missiology degree from Fuller Theological Seminary in California and a doctor of theology degree from the University of South Africa.
Dr. Wagner is married to Sally, and they have two children, Candice and Mark.
We hope you will enjoy listening to this interview and will find it helpful as you consider the man for whom you will vote to lead our Convention in the following year. For more information on Dr. Bill Wagner, you can link to his website here.
