We are seeking 200 donors to raise a portion of the $500,000 cost of purchasing, furnishing, and maintaining The Lisa Hoff House. Along with your gift, we encourage you to share on social media how Dr. Hoff's ministry impacted you, and to invite others to give to this fundraiser.

"We want many of you to be able to give gifts, even if they are small, so that you can say that you are a part of creating the Lisa Hoff House for future professional-in-residence at Gateway Seminary."

President Jeff Iorg

Gateway Seminary experienced a tragic loss this year with the passing of Dr. Lisa Hoff. The Hoff House is our effort to continue her legacy of training leaders to reach the nations with the gospel. We are commemorating her life and ministry by purchasing her home to establish a second professional-in-residence (PIR) house for the seminary. The Hoff House will provide furnished housing and transportation for visiting PIRs.

Gateway's PIR program allows students to interact with ministry practitioners serving internationally in cross-cultural contexts. The PIRs teach classes, host student fellowships, and provide mentorship for aspiring cross-cultural ministers.

Lisa Hoff was passionate about preparing Gateway students to take the gospel to the ends of the earth. The Hoff House honors that passion by giving students opportunities to learn from boots-on-the-ground experts in sharing the gospel internationally.

Through our collective efforts, we can help Gateway shape leaders who will expand God's kingdom around the world. 

Campaign is over but you can still give

The campaign is over and we had over 260 individuals give towards the Hoff House. Due to overwhelming demand, we will keep the Hoff House page open through the end of December. Thank you for your immense support, warm memories, and continual prayers as we establish the Hoff House.

Several members of Dr. Hoff's last Capstone Project cohort gave to the Hoff House. It is wonderful to see the impact that Dr. Hoff continues to have upon students in the Gateway community.

Active matches!

We have three active matches right now. How exciting! That means every dollar you give will be matched by three additional dollars from our generous donors. If you give $25, the Hoff House will receive $100. If you give $100, the Hoff House will receive $400. For the next $1000 that you give, the Hoff House project will be blessed by a total of $4000. Would you partner with us today, and multiply your impact?
