As we seek to know God, He uses everyday people like us to meet real spiritual needs.
The Hoffman Family
Pastor John Hoffman is the founding pastor of The Grove. Before, he had spent 16 years serving as a student ministry pastor at Foothills Christian Church. Born and raised in La Mesa, he received his undergraduate from San Diego State University and his Masters Degree in Theology from Bethel Seminary San Diego. In 1989, he married his high school sweetheart, Gina, principal of Foothills Elementary. God blessed John and Gina with three amazing sons and two wonderful daughters-in-law. One of the great blessings of their lives is to serve in ministry together at The Grove.
