The Rev. Mother Adrienne R. Hymes
Priest, Church Planter
The Reverend Mother Adrienne R. Hymes is the Missioner for Church Extension for the Episcopal Diocese of Southwest Florida. Mother Hymes’ ministry is broad, and includes church planting in Pasco and Hillsborough counties.
Mother Hymes is a clinically-trained chaplain, having completed a full-time, one-year Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) residency at Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater, and one-year as an ER trauma chaplain at Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg. Her more than 13 years of experience as a seasoned public relations and marketing executive in Los Angeles and Washington, DC, have uniquely equipped her to engage and access frontiers traditionally closed to the Church. Leveraging these skills has enabled her to develop frameworks for the revitalization of existing ministries and the development of new ministries. She is an internationally-published advocate for the specialized practice of workplace chaplaincy, and has studied the practice extensively in the U.S. and the U.K.
A life-long Episcopalian, Mother Hymes earned her Master in Divinity degree from the Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria, VA in 2014, and her B.A. degree in Rhetoric and Communications Studies from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA in May 1994.
Mother Hymes enthusiastically envisions the emergence of a vibrant worshiping community, in the rich Anglican tradition of the Episcopal Church, in Wesley Chapel.
