Jack is the pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church of Paris, IL.,
an independent Baptist church.
I am soon to be 51 but young at heart, actually
a little nutz at times. I love a great variety of Christian music
of various styles and direct our church choir. I am an avid hunter,
primarily bow hunter having taken some really great whitetail bucks
and we eat the meat. To see a picture of me with my last two whitetails,
go to American-Hunter.com or monsterbucks.com.
My wife of thirty one years in June is Jill,
you know, Jack and Jill. We have three sons, two here on earth and
one in heaven, two daughter-in-laws and four grandchildren, the
oldest being in second grade.
I have a bachelors and Masters degree from two
different institutions of higher learning. I write a weekly newspaper
column for our local paper, the Paris Beacon News, called Fresh
Air, Outdoors with Jack Hoffman.
I am a state certified hunter safety course
instructor, teaching at least two classes of students each year.
I got saved at 7 years of age and I love the Lord Jesus Christ with
all my heart.
As you probably guessed I really enjoy writing
and hope to be able to develop my gift until the Lord comes or He
takes me home.
My wife and I like to go to concerts and auctions
together, and we love to travel, camp out, and go boating and fishing
I believe in writing out what I have in my heart
for if something impacts me, it probably will someone else. I believe
in being brutally honest and practice transparency and have no pretension
about who I am. I hope that I can be used by God to help someone
In the future I hope to open a web site
that will have my various writings and devotionals available, etc.
