Pastor at the Gawler Lutheran Parish 1989 – 1994
Born in Toowoomba, Queensland, Pastor Wockner worked as a printer before undertaking studies at the Lutheran Seminary in Adelaide. He was married and living at Freeling when he was called to the Gawler Parish. He was initially appointed as a locum tenens pastor before receiving a regular call to the Parish to replace Pastor Bergen.
Within a few months of Pastor Wockner serving at Gawler, his co-pastor, Pastor Peter Miller accepted a call to the ParaVista Lutheran Church. He was replaced by Pastor Peter Hartwich. Pastor Wockner generally maintained the program of the Gawler Parish until he accepted a call to Ipswich East in Queensland and left Gawler mid 1994. He was remembered particularly for his caring ministry, especially to people in crisis or beravement.
