Our Mission

“The Hoffmann Institute, an outreach arm of the Department of Theology and Ministry at Concordia Saint Paul, equips God’s baptized people for witness and service in today’s multicultural and increasingly urbanized world.”

Our Vision

“A growing group of partners acknowledges the Hoffmann Institute as a leader in multicultural and urban awareness and engagement, through its application of best practices, within a solidly Lutheran theological framework.” The Hoffmann Institute is a God-gathered combination of God’s servants who incorporate their diverse experiences, gifts and callings to follow this 2 Timothy 2:2 principle to engage in God’s mission to save all people:

“What you have heard from me through many witnesses, entrust to faithful people who will be able to teach others as well.”
2 Timothy 2:2 NRSV
