Story
Tagline
Dr. James Hofman (Christian, Husband, Father, Pastor, College Instructor, former professional magician)
Introduction
I grew up in Delano California and was active in the First Baptist Church youth group. While at Bakersfield College and later at Fresno State University, I was very involved in Campus Crusade for Christ and Campus Baptist Church in Fresno. My hobby (sleight-of-hand magic) turned into a career for a short time after college. I returned to Fresno, married Patti Curtis, and later we moved to Portland Oregon where I attended Western Seminary. I interned for Bill Perkins at Lake Baptist Church in Lake Oswego while I attended Seminary. My first pastorate was back in Fresno (Grace Evangelical Church) for three years and then I spent the next 12 years in Los Banos California as Sr. Pastor of Westside Community Church.  Now I am in Central Oregon where I pastor Living Water of La Pine and teach college speech classes for C.O.C.C. in Bend. 
Bragging rights
I am Patti's husband, Stacie and Katie's dad, and soon to be Sean Ewing's father-in-law.
