Pastor Jacob Hoff
I was born in Helena, MT, but spent most of my childhood in Livonia, MI. As the son of a Lutheran pastor, I have been involved with ministry work since I was young. I attended Michigan Lutheran Seminary, a ministerial prep high school in Saginaw, MI. After high school, I continued my preparation for full time public ministry at Martin Luther College, in New Ulm, MN from where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts. Part of my college studies included learning the biblical languages of Hebrew and Greek. In 2013, I earned my Master of Divinity (M. Div.) from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, in Mequon, WI.

As part of my training, I served an internship (“vicarship”) at Christ the King Lutheran Church, a mission church in Palm Coast, FL. Upon graduation from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, I received a call to serve as a mission pastor at Christ Our Savior Lutheran Church in Sterling, VA. At the beginning of 2016, I accepted the call to serve St. Paul’s in Franklin, WI as Pastor of Outreach.

I am married to Laura, and God has blessed us with three children (and a fourth on the way, due August 2016!), Gideon, Molly, and Ezra. I look forward to meeting you and helping in any way I can.
