Salem’s New Pastor

Salem has welcomed Pastor Eric Hoffer as our new pastor. Here is a little about him.

Pastor Eric Hoffer was called to Salem in December of 2018 and is so excited to be Salem’s pastor. He was born and raised in Edina, MN and went on to graduate from Luther College (2008), where he studied English and French, and Luther Seminary, finishing with a concentration in Congregational Mission and Leadership (2012).

Pastor Eric has a lot of interests, from cooking to reading to sports. He and his wife, Kirsten, enjoy relaxing at home with their kitten, Harriet, as well as going on adventures around Minnesota. Pastor Eric is called to share the gifts of Word and Sacrament, help discover what’s next for Salem, build relationships around the neighborhood, and work for justice in the community.
