Pastor Matthew Kofahl

Meet Pastor Matthew Kofahl:

Pastor Matt and Mary Kofahl

I became the pastor of Hope Church seven years ago and in that time I’ve been stretched and challenged by the reality of being the church in our time and in our community. I love our church and I love the United Methodist Church. I am a life-long United Methodist, growing up nearby in Niagara Falls. I graduated Houghton College, attended Asbury Theological Seminary and finally graduated from Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School in 2012.

I am passionate about the ministry and mission of Hope Church. I have a desire to see the Gospel succeed in our community because I believe it the hope of the community and the world.

My hobbies include running a group cycling studio out of the church, running, music, and hanging out with my wife and three daughters. God has been good to me and I enjoy living life!
