Personal statement

I am a native of Prince Edward Island, and my interests include religion and politics, faith and science, and South African Studies. In 2008, I spent three months in South Africa as a Theological Student International Intern, where I worked in UN refugee camps and with those affected by HIV/AIDS. I am currently completing the Doctor of Ministry degree at Trinity College, University of Toronto. I am also involved in the Anglican diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, having served on Diocesan Council, Human Resources VSST, as a Pre-ordination Assessor, and as a member of the Task Force for Diocesan Episcopacy. In 2013, I was a delegate of General Synod at the Joint Assembly in Ottawa, Ontario. I also sit on the Communications Committee for the National Church in Toronto, Ontario.

I am married to Dr. Julie Wagner, PhD, who works for the Nova Scotia Health Authority in Halifax. We love our son Elijah, and our dachshund Opie.
