Introducing Fr. Doug Wasinger
My friends, it is my honor to announce the Rector-Elect of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Fr. Douglas Wasinger
Fr. Doug is the Rector of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Buffalo, Wyoming; and serves as a visiting priest across the Diocese of Wyoming.
Fr. Doug is married, and he and his wife Kellie have three daughters; two are out of the home, and one is a junior in High School to start this school year.
Fr. Doug is amazingly conversational, an excellent preacher, and leads while you don’t know you are being led. He has been in the priesthood for 19 years and seems like he has 40 years of experience with hands on leadership, preaching, empowering others, pastoral care, and outreach into his communities. He loves helping people discern their gifts and how to use them in service to our Lord. He has led and helped create some incredibly successful outreach ministries in rural Wyoming and strives to work with the whole Christian ecumenical community.
Fr. Doug loves music and how music can help those who are seeking a deeper relationship with Christ. He loves our Episcopal liturgy ranging from formal to more informal styles and developed a Celtic Prayer service in his current parish. His career as a priest in the Episcopal Church has been focused on formation of all of the baptized. He believes that the laity is vital for the church to have a strong sense of ownership and participation in discipleship, pastoral care, administration, formation, transformation, worship leading, and preaching.
But don’t take it from us, let’s hear from Fr. Doug himself: here's a link to a video message from Fr. Doug.
St. Mark’s is a caring Christian family dedicated to helping people walk out their faith in God. We not only want people to know God, but to learn how
to apply their faith to life’s challenges. Faith makes the difference!
Our motto is: Real Faith for Real Life. We welcome people of all backgrounds and ages. No matter where we are in our faith journey, God Himself works with us in community building faith.
We walk together through life and call
it "Community". We become an answer to another person’s problems and call it
"Service". We reverently reflect upon the Bible, and call it "Truth". Together we see that God is providing Real Faith for Real Life for each of us.
