Rev. H. Robb French, or Uncle Robb as may people knew him, is remembered as a pioneer and founder of FEA ministries in Hobe Sound, FL which has been blessed by God. To a greater degree, though, he is remembered by people all across the holiness movement as an evangelist whose heart was on fire for the Lord.
Born in Denver, Colorado to a preacher/lawyer father, he began his lifetime of preaching and ministry when he was only in his teens. His ever growing zeal to preach the gospel led him to become a general evangelist in the Wesleyan Methodist Church as well as a pastor and church planter. In the 1940’s, he felt the call of God upon his heart to found a center for prayer and revival in Florida. In 1947, as a result of the labors of Brother and Sister French and the Zuchs, the Florida Evangelistic Association was founded. During his lifetime, with the help of other saints, this grew to include Sea Breeze Camp, Hobe Sound Bible College, FEA Missions, Sea Breeze Manor and a Gospel literature ministry. Ever committed to the holiness way, he helped to found the Inter-Church Holiness Association of Churches.
Although H. Robb French is well remembered as a man that has accomplished many things, he will be remembered and honored as a man that loved the Lord.
