There is only one Lutheran Church in Des Peres MO.
MO has death certificates scanned online and there is a Paul E. Wagner that d. 1959 in St Louis County and has Clergyman for the Luthern Church for occupation.

1920 census Paul E. Wagner is a minister for the Lutheran Church in Central Township, St. Louis County, MO

1930 census for Central Township, St Louis County, MO also notes "Unincorporated place: Des Peres" has occupation as "Chaplain - Lutheran Orphan Home".

So it looks like your father was baptized at either the church or at the Home itself.
