Hello, my name is Kyle Hoffsmith and I am the Pastor of High School Ministry at Old North Church. My wife Jenna and I moved to Canfield, Ohio from central Pennsylvania where I have lived for all of my life. High School ministry is exciting as these years in a student’s life are important and serve as a launching pad for the rest of their lives. I believe that we need to prepare students for life after high school and that high school youth ministry is a great place to do this!
The longer I am in youth ministry, I have found that three of my life passions align with youth ministry. They are as followed; reminding people that true life is found in Jesus, breaking down generational barriers within the family of God, and encouraging students to look at their schools as their mission fields.
Besides enjoying the opportunity to serve as a Pastor in High School Ministry, there are some things you should know about me! I am a BIG soccer fan. I grew up playing soccer for many years in my childhood and now enjoy watching the U.S.Men’s National Team. I also enjoy reading, spending time with friends and family, playing table tennis, running, and eating ice cream.
My wife Jenna and I met when we were both in college at Millersville University in Pennsylvania. I have an undergraduate degree in Business Administration and am currently pursuing a masters degree from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
I look forward to seeing what God has in store for our youth ministry as we aim to be a student ministry that sees students come to Christ and become disciples who make more disciples.
