Don Hoffert

Elder

Email

The Lord Jesus Christ caused Don Hoffert to be born again at age 15 during a school evangelistic event. He graduated from North Dakota State University in 1977, married Cynthia, and was blessed with a 30-year marketplace career.

The Lord led the Hofferts to Bethlehem in 2007 and they became members in 2009. Don leads an Employment Transitions group, Business As Missions, and shepherd groups at Bethlehem.

He also serves as Area Director to develop Christian Business Leaders Peer Forums, consisting of “business owners and professionals lit up by Christ, glorifying God in their life, business, and extended marketplace.”

Expository teaching, involvement with unreached people groups in Kenya, and the books Don’t Waste Your Life (by John Piper) and Heaven (by Randy Alcorn) have all had a major impact in his life. His life verses are Romans 12:1–2: “Present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind.”

Don & Cynthia live in Plymouth, Minnesota, and are blessed with two believing children and spouses, and six grandchildren as of 2017.
