Dr. J. Jeffrey Hoover is a missionary with the General Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church assigned since 1979 to the Democratic Republic of Congo, formerly Zaire. Dr. Hoover is a professor at Katanga Methodist University, both in the theological college as professor of church history and in the School of Information Technology.
Jeff also serves as chief librarian, overseeing a computerization and recataloguing project, and has served as founding dean of the School of Information Technology and as a vice-dean for the theological college.
Dr. Hoover has been involved in international accreditation isssues, development of Congolese faculty, and the development of both concepts and curricula for the new colleges of the university.
Jeff shares that he is deeply committed to the development of a viable United Methodist-related university at Mulungwishi which can help address the critical needs of the Congo that are emerging after three decades of the Mobutu regime and five years of war. In a country where French rather than English is the principal international language, a Congolese university can better and more cost effectively serve the needs of its country while following the principles and values of an African University for English-speaking Africa.
Jeff continues to maintain his ties with the public University of Lubumbashi, one of the three Congolese state universities which for two decades had a monopoly on higher education. He teaches pre-colonial African history, the field of his research, and is also interested in Bantu historical linguistics and social anthropology. He continues to concentrate on teaching beginning undergraduates as well as facilitiating the development of Congolese staff.
In addition to teaching, Dr. Hoover has also served as a consultant to government and international organizations involved with development projects in Katanga province. From 1985-92 he served as administrative director of a medical infrastructure project with the cooperation of USAID, the Zairian government, and several Christian denominations, all managed by the Southern Congo Annual Conference.
Dr. Hoover received his B.A. degree in history and biology from Luther College in 1969, and earned his M.Ph. degree in 1972 and his Ph.D. in African History in 1978, both from Yale University.
He is married to Dr. Ellen Titus Hoover, who is also a GBGM missionary serving in the DRC. They have a daughter, Jane, and two sons, Jeremy and Mark.
Jeffrey Hoover is available for Covenant Relationship support in Baltimore-Washington Annual Conference, Susquehanna Annual Conference, Iowa Annual Conference, Mississippi Annual Conference, New Mexico Annual Conference, North Georgia Annual Conference, Pacific Northwest Annual Conference, South Georgia Annual Conference, West Michigan Annual Conference, Western Pennsylvania Annual Conference .
