Hofen Family.png

Mission Church was founded in 2007 as Pastor Brent and his family moved to Bend, Oregon to start a brand new church. 

The heart and calling of Mission Church is to eventually plant eleven campuses that help to touch hearts and change lives all throughout the Pacific Northwest. We are on our way to this goal with a campus in Bend (planted 2007), Redmond (2012), online (2014), Madras (2016), and Portland (2018). We aim to partner with the Spirit in planting in his timing, and help to connect people's stories to God's purpose throughout the Northwest.

Brent Hofen -
Lead Pastor

about brent

Brent has a passion for blessing others and paying it forward with the love of Jesus Christ. Brent is passionate about paying it forward with creative acts of kindness that radically change people’s view of the church and inspire them to become a part of it. Through discipleship, he loves to see people freed from addictions, marriages healed, and broken situations redeemed for good. Brent is passionate about reaching people who are disconnected from a relationship with Jesus Christ. Brent is the founder and lead pastor of Mission Church.
