Pastor Hoffman - Pastor / Administrator
Greetings to you in the Name of Jesus! My name is Pastor Hoffman and I am the fifth of five children. I grew up in Washington State. After graduating High School, I attended University of Alaska where I met my wife Christine. We were married in 1991 and have two sons. Currently, I hold degrees in Computer Science, Business Management and Communication as well as a Master of Divinity. After Seminary, I was called to serve in Anchorage Alaska and in 2015 was called to serve as the Pastor and School Administrator of Christ Lutheran Church & School. Brining Jesus and a top-notch education to the people of our community has been one of the single greatest joys of my pastoral career! I look forward to getting to know my students and their families!

Mary Robson - Fourth & Fifth Teacher
Greetings Christ Lutheran Church and School families! My name is Ms. Mary Robson and I am thrilled to be joining this community of worship. God has called me from Cheyenne, Wyoming to come to Coos Bay and teach on the beach. I am a blessed mother of 3 daughters and one son, as well as a granddaughter and two grandsons. I have been a faithful follower of God my entire life, and an elementary educator for 12 years. I enjoy horseback riding, hiking, walking on the beach and the company of my family. I am honored to be joined by my youngest daughter Amber, who is 16 years old and we are both thrilled to be together on this adventure the Lord has provided us. I look forward to working with the amazing team of teachers at the school, as well as being part of the congregation of fellow believers. Thank you for this amazing opportunity! I look forward to meeting all of you.
