CIU Alumnus Plants Church in his Hometown

June 13, 2012

Not everyone gets this opportunity.  Columbia International University alumnus Brian Hofmeister has returned to his hometown to plant a new church. 

Hofmeister, who graduated from CIU Seminary & School of Ministry with a Master of Divinity degree in 2004, is back in Muskego, Wis. where he grew up.  He is now pastor of Lakepoint Church which began forming in April, and already has 65 members.  The congregation currently meets at facilities in a retirement community, but hopes to rent facilities in the local high school soon.

Hofmeister, who has 11 years of ministry experience, told the local newspaper that he is glad to be home. 

“It’s very rare that a pastor gets to come back and be a pastor in his hometown,” Hofmeister said.  “I’m excited.”
