Dr. Earl Waggoner is passionate about connecting students with the rich traditions of Christianity. The collective thought and monumental events of the church not only tell a great story, but they offer effective resources for contemporary ministry.

Earl arrived in Southern California in 2012, bringing with him ten years of Golden Gate Seminary teaching experience, primarily at the Rocky Mountain Campus. California ministry includes supply and interim preaching & teaching. In Colorado he served also as an interim pastor, supply preacher, and a minister to the professional baseball community.

At this point he refuses to trade his National League loyalty from the Colorado Rockies to the Los Angeles Dodgers, but he is an American League Angels fan. Prior to his Golden Gate experience, Earl served ten years as pastor to several churches in Louisiana.

His wife, Kris, is a registered nurse, homemaker, and musician. The Waggoners have three adult children: Brooke (and her husband Brad), Luke, and Philip (and his wife Becky).
