The Hoeffs Family
Pastor Todd accepted the Lord's calling to serve in Winnipeg having spent nearly 12 years in Edmonton. He, and his wife Jennifer, came to Edmonton fresh out of the St. Catharines Seminary in Ontario. The Lord has blessed them with 3 children; Jonah and Nick , and Georgia.
Pastor Todd was born and raised outside Buffalo, NY (USA) in a community of 5,000 known as East Aurora. Pastor Todd attended Daemen College, near Buffalo, NY, earning a Bachelor in Art Education in 1995. After teaching for a year in Catholic schools and adult education, he followed the Lord's path and entered Concordia Lutheran Theological Seminary in St. Catharines ON and finished in the spring of 2000. Pastor Todd was sent to Grace Lutheran Church, Regina, SK for his vicarage year, under the mentorship of Rev. Donald Koch. Early into his vicarage Pastor Todd met his lovely wife and they were married at Grace in 1999.
His wife, Jennifer, was born and raised in Winnipeg and attended Good Shepherd Lutheran in Transcona. She attended the University of Regina, SK, and received her Bachelor of Education with distinctions. She has taught in public schools In Edmonton and most recently ran a preschool program.
Paster Todd states "Our boys were born to us through open adoption. We welcomed them into our family when they were only a day old. Georgia came along as a surprise "miracle baby". Our eldest, Jonah, has multiple special needs due to a stroke he suffered at birth. All of our children are active, loving and enthusiastic."
Pastor Todd and his family look forward to getting to know all members of the "Redeemer family" in Winnipeg. They pray the Lord's blessing upon the work He gives each one of us to do as His light in the world.
