Mrs. Jean Hobbs, Lay Minister

Mrs. Jean Hobbs (nee Bush) is one of St. Philip’s longest standing members, beginning her church attendance at the age of three. The daughter of one of its founders, her only absence in regular attendance was during the time of her husband Allen’s military service (USAF). Mrs. Hobbs began serving St. Philip’s as a lay minister sometime in the late 1970’s or early 1980’s. At this time, lay ministers were traveling from Jacksonville to provide their assistance and on one Sunday, the assigned lay minister didn’t attend. Her desire to serve the church was clear when she stood up, and kept the service running smoothly, leading Morning Prayer from her pew. Mrs. Hobbs has been married for 61 years and is the proud mother of four, grandmother of nine and great grandmother of four.
