Since God miraculously healed Dianna Hobbs, award-winning founder of Empowering Everyday Women Ministries, Inc., she has hit the ground running.

Today it was officially announced that she and her husband, Kenya Hobbs, both licensed ministers in the Church of God In Christ, have accepted the roles of Executive Pastor and First Lady at an urban startup ministry on the east side of Buffalo, NY.

Evangelistic Temple COGIC appointed longtime community leader Elder Hobbs during Sunday service flanked by his wife and the pair’s four children.

Both are reportedly excited to lead this new effort to address the spiritual and practical concerns of community residents.

“We are intentional in our focus to operate a church that looks outward to helping the community to thrive and grow both spiritually and naturally,” said Elder Hobbs.

“A good friend once told me ‘Love is what love does,’ and we intend to be doers of God’s word by getting out into the community and helping where we can to improve the conditions and concerns facing many residents,” he added.

Evangelistic Temple was initially planted in August of last year by Bishop Joseph Brinson, Sr., 81, father of Evangelist Hobbs. He realized the work was too great for him and sought out the assistance of the very capable 19-years-married pair.

The small church building located at 84 Rickert Ave. in the heart of the inner city of Buffalo has its work cut out for it. It is surrounded by many abandoned lots, homes in need of love and a struggling business economy. But the Kingdom-minded couple is undeterred.

“We are so humbled and honored that God would choose us to fill such a weighty role as pastor and first lady. We in no way take that lightly,” said Evangelist Hobbs.

“We will do all we can to honor God, love and build up His people, and serve with integrity, while always teaching a doctrine that is rooted in the word of God,” she added.

Elder Hobbs says he and his wife are looking forward to engaging with residents, business owners, law enforcement officials, and other community residents to harness all the resources available to strengthen this community hobbled by disinvestment, high unemployment rates, and crime.
