St. Paul's Anglican Church, Summerville
316 West Carolina Avenue Summerville, SC 29483
The Rev. Jeff Jacobs Jeff was born and raised in the community at St. Paul’s. When he was 15, two pastors independently prophesied that Jeff would become a priest one day. A year later, he heard a call from God to move to North Africa. Jeff graduated from the University of South Carolina with a BA in Religious Studies, a minor in Hotel, Restaurant, and Tourism Management, and a desire to take that knowledge to North Africa. Not long after, Jeff spent two years in Morocco learning the language and developing a business plan with Kristin. Kristin had joined the team at the same time, and at the end of their internship, they got married here at St. Paul’s. Though Jeff has not always been physically a part of life here at St. Paul’s, he has always had one foot in our community. St. Paul’s sent him to North Africa, then to seminary, and has now graciously welcomed him back to Summerville for a time. Jeff and Kristin as well as their two children, Uriah and Eden, still have an eye on North Africa, but they are glad to be here, too. “Wherever you are, be all there.” -Jim Elliot.
