Dr. Jeanne Hoeft

Ministry as a theological educator is, for me, a continuance of local church ministry.
When a roomful of students sits before me in class I see not just an individual pastor
but the many congregations they are likely to serve in their years ahead.
In educating church leaders seminaries have a vital role in the church and society . . .


United Methodist Church (UMC), Elder
