Called to Africa
Before they were married in April 1996, Chad and Sara both knew that they would one day serve the Lord in Africa. All of their early experience in business, ministry, and family life served as preparation for the calling that would eventually relocate the Hoffmans to South Africa in September 2009. For one and a half years, they worked in South Africa networking with local pastors, initiating rural evangelism, and facilitating church planting. In April of 2011, the Hoffmans shifted their primary ministry focus to East Africa in a partnership with Christian Mission Aid. Partnership with CMA has afforded the Hoffmans the opportunity to reach further into Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and South Sudan.
A note from Chad
We are honored to be a part of what God is doing on the African continent. Throughout the years, I stand amazed at how our steps have been ordered by the Lord. There were many times when I felt like I was hanging at the end of my rope; asking myself, “How can our family possibly continue this ministry?” More than once I caught myself staring over the proverbial fence, convinced that the grass on the other side was a shade or two greener than my own. Then came the reminder… The race that God called us to is not a short distance sprint. Long-term fruitfulness in ministry always requires endurance.
My calling is to Africa; and after the last several years, our journey is only beginning.
