This is a blog about art, culture, spiritual formation, and leadership multiplication.
Root48 is a title that captures the life and mission of Brian Hofmeister. Mark 4.8 tells of a seed that takes root in good soil, grows and multiplies thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times what it once was. By experiencing Jesus, needing each other, and making it all about someone else, the seeds of Jesus can have the same effect in us.
Brian is a father, husband, pastor, artist, small group coach/trainer, organic church planter, childhood cancer survivor, and disc golfer. He wishes he was a sky diver and a swimmer, but does not have the guts to jump out of plane, or enough confidence to wear a speedo. Brian’s favorites include fresh Fall air, coffee shops with his wife, learning in dialog, and Chinese buffets (as long as they’re serving crab ragoons)! Brian is the Lead Pastor and Church Planter of Lakepoint Church and graduated with a Masters in Divinity from Columbia International and a Bachelors from UW-Platteville.
