Staff – Stephen Hoffman



Hey there! I’m Stephen! I’m originally from New Jersey and have lived in Oregon since 2001. I have been attending Morning Star since 2020 after moving here from Portland. I am married to my amazing wife Erin, and we have three children, Brendan, Kiley, and Madisyn.


My passion is music, and I am involved in all aspects of the worship ministry here at Morning Star. I’ve been playing acoustic and electric guitar for over 20 years, and I love using the gifts the Lord has given me to be able to serve Him. I am also attending Liberty University and majoring in Worship Studies with an emphasis on Commercial Music.


When I’m not working, playing music, or serving at Morning Star, my family and I are outdoors. You can find us hiking or somewhere at the Oregon Coast or Central Oregon. I’m also a huge sports fan. I love football and soccer the most and root for the Philadelphia Eagles and Oregon State Beavers.


It’s awesome being able to work in a job where every day you get to minister to others and serve Jesus. I am so thankful for the people here and the work that I do.
