Philip Wagner was born in 1953 to Eddie Wagner and Betty Kurowski. He earned a Bachelor of Arts from Vision Christian University and did his graduate studies at Fuller Theological Seminary.
The pastor, who is now 70 years old, felt a calling to ministry early on, but he didn’t pursue it until later when he met his wife, Holly.
Philip Wagner and his wife, Holly Wagner, got married on January 12, 1985, and they’ve been married for over 30 years.
Holly Wagner grew up in Venezuela, Indonesia, and England before moving to Los Angeles. She worked as an actress in films and television for more than 10 years and is also an author with several books to her name, including GodChicks and Daily Steps for GodChicks. She has appeared on various TV shows like The View, Praise the Lord, the 700 Club, and Dick Clark’s The Other Half.
The couple is passionate about helping couples thrive in their relationships, and they share this passion through seminars, conferences, and books. They have co-authored several books, including their latest one titled Love Works, covering topics like dating, love, and repairing marriages.

The couple resides in Los Angeles, CA, and has two grown children, Paris (born on August 26, 1991), and Jordan (born on May 17, 1987).
Philip Wagner felt a calling to ministry when he was a young boy but initially ignored it, getting involved in other areas of ministry. He worked as a music leader, youth director, and assistant pastor before deciding to start a church. It wasn’t until he met his wife, Holly, that he realized ministry was his true calling, and coincidentally, she felt the same.
Oasis Church, planted 30 years ago, began as a small Bible study in Beverly Hills with around ten people. According to Pastor Wagner, the church started with about thirty people, and it took some time to figure out their identity and ministry approach. Initially, he emulated people he admired.
Oasis is recognized for its local and global outreach, especially to the impoverished, focusing on orphans and widows and funding clean water projects. The church is also known for its racial diversity, with no racial majority, according to Pastor Wagner.
Philip Wagner is not only a pastor but also a public speaker who has spoken in churches and seminars worldwide. As an author and blogger, he inspires people to live their best lives and discover and reach God’s purpose for their lives.
Oasis Church recently moved to a new location on Wilshire Blvd, which is in a building built in 1926 and considered a Los Angeles historic landmark designed by architect Robert H. Orr. This building was recognized as Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #209 in 1979.
Back in 2010, the church had over three thousand members and is well-known for the diverse backgrounds of its members. Oasis Church sponsored the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Jesus Christ, unveiled in 1998, aiming to create a “Walk of Faith.” The star was placed in front of one of the church’s previous locations.
Pastor Wagner, associated with Oasis Church, has been featured on various TV channels and online platforms, including TBN, CBN, Day Star, NY Times, EOnline, and Forbes.
