He served in the United States Naval Reserves for 14 years as a chaplain. Wade married Pamela Bungum in Rochester, MN on August 2, 1992.

Wade ministered parishes in southwestern North Dakota before returning to his beloved childhood church, First Lutheran in Minot, where he was called to be the directing pastor. Eventually, he moved to Minnesota and served as as an interim pastor in Hayfield and West Concord before Central Lutheran in Winona issued him a letter of call. He retired from Central in 2002 and immediately began as interim at Highland Prairie and Elstad Lutheran churches. After ten years, Wade retired once again, although he remained active in ministry-supply preaching, performing weddings and funerals, and eventually became known as "Rent-a-Rev" in the Winona area.

Wade was active until the end of his life, he enjoyed tap dancing, fly fishing, downhill skiing, traveling, playing the piano and wood carving. He also enjoyed volunteering with elementary children and at the Minnesota Marine Art Museum.
