John F. Hoffmeyer

Associate Professor of Systematic Theology

The Rev. Dr. John F. Hoffmeyer’s work centers in the doctrine of the Trinity and its ongoing challenge to theology: (1) to be centered in the profoundly not self-centered person of Jesus Christ; (2) to call attention to the open-ended plurality of ways in which the risen Christ is present by the power of the Spirit; (3) to marvel at the mystery of a God who always transcends our theologies.
