Chaplain Adrienne Hymes is the Chaplain and Director at the St. Anselm’s Episcopal Chapel Center at the University of South Florida (USF) campus.  As the Missioner for Church Extension for the Episcopal Diocese of Southwest Florida, Adrienne’s ministry is broad and includes church planting in Pasco and Hillsborough counties. She is a life-long Episcopalian, and is currently a Postulant for Holy Orders for priesthood in the Episcopal Church.

Adrienne is a clinically-trained chaplain, having completed a 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, to develop frameworks for the revitalization of existing ministries and to develop 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.

Adrienne 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.

Chaplain Adrienne enthusiastically envisions the re-emergence of St. Anselm’s, founded in 1960, as a vibrant spiritual resource, and a “city on the hill that cannot be hid, for the multi-faceted, interconnected academic and business communities.”

    Hi Adrienne
    What kind of items does the church need. It may not be anything big but I would like to see what I can do.
    Thanks fellow Falcon

  2. It was wonderful to hear your presentation this morning at Diocesan Council. I support your ministry and pray for “Evangelism” to continue with St. Anselm, a holy space carved out to proclaim the “Good News.” Calvary Episcopal Church on Indian Rocks Beach would enjoy opportunities in the future to cultivate a mutual ministry.

    With many high school students within our diocese, discerning where God calls them in their career pursuits through education, I wonder if we can identify them and connect them with St. Anselm in a meaningful way.
