Rev. J.C. Hibbard went to his eternal home in Heaven on January 8, 2017.
Jordan Carl Hibbard, Jr. would have turned 86 years old on January 16, 2017. Jordan’s love for his family was deep and unconditional. He was an amazing husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He will be sorely missed by his wife Marie; his children and spouses Judith Hibbard, Bruce and Julie Hibbard, Sandra Hibbard, and Elizabeth and Randy Speegle; his grandchildren and spouses Nikki Garland, Melissa and Hamid Rahmanian, Joshua and April Judkins, Sarah Sellers, Zac Speegle and Jacob Speegle; his great grandchildren Christian Garland and Sophie Rahmanian; and his siblings and spouses Dee Elkins, Ron Underwood, Jaynell and Ronnie Songstad, and Darlene and Mervin Walker. And of course, many other family members, his extensive church family, numerous friends, and sweet pups Einstein, Harry Winston and Luna. He is preceded in passing by his grandchildren Joseph Cotton and Melanie Hibbard, father J.C. Hibbard, Sr., mother Lillian Grewie Ash and sister, June Marie Underwood.

Jordan’s great passion for life was contagious, and he lived big - he was a musician, singer, songwriter, artist, author, inventor, historian, student, golfer, mechanic, cook, builder, and genius (just ask him). And of course, he was a preacher. He grew up in Dallas, Texas as the only son of a preacher, Rev. J.C. Hibbard, Sr., and as a young boy he joined sisters June Marie and Dee, and along with their father, they ministered to many thousands of faithful listeners singing and preaching on KSKY Dallas radio every morning before heading off to school. He was active in his father’s ministry until he was called to preach at the tender age of fifteen. As a teenager he evangelized all across Texas until at the age of twenty-three he took his first job as pastor at 4th & Grand in Dallas.

Jordan went on to pastor for three years in Richmond, VA before moving to Oklahoma City in 1960 when he began his fifty seven-year tenure as pastor of Full Gospel Assembly, later named Covenant Fellowship Church. He loved Oklahoma City, and it was here, with his precious Marie by his side, where he spent the remainder of his life upholding his promise to faithfully serve Christ by loving and serving the body of Christ. Throughout his ministry, he and Marie experienced countless struggles, but more often than not – and he would be the first to testify - many countless blessings. The impact of his ministry has touched and changed the lives of so many across the country and around the world. His witness to countless miracles over the span of his life and ministry left him with an unwavering faith in God that would be his legacy. He would not hesitate to declare that his life had been a testament to the un-merited faithfulness, mercy and love of God. Over this past Christmas, and for the last time, his family had the joy of sitting around the piano with him in the living room and singing all together his favorite song, Great is Thy Faithfulness. And as a testament to his life and to his legacy, today we sing, “Great is thy faithfulness, Oh God my Father, There is no shadow of turning with Thee, Thou changest not, Thy compassions they fail not, Great is Thy faithfulness Lord unto me”. Reverend J.C. Hibbard, Jr., January 16, 1931 - January 8, 2017.

Called to preach at the age of 19 in Dallas, Texas, J.C. "Jay" Hibbard, Jr. has been bringing the message of salvation and grace to crowds of hungry souls for over 50 years.  "Where the souls of men are refreshed" has been a phrase that describes his message and the mission of his congregation at Covenant Fellowship Church, which he established in 1961 in Oklahoma, City and continues to pastor today.

A dynamic ministry of faith, healing, evangelism and deliverance, Jay Hibbard is anointed to set the hearts of captive men and women free, and teach the refreshing Gospel message to those hungry for power and authority in their everyday lives.  His messages of the "Gospel of the Kingdom" and the "Seven Sheddings of the Blood of Christ" have been ahead of their time and have been received by tens of thousands of men and women.  As a 70+ year old "covenant" man, Jay Hibbard is far from retirement.  In fact, as he rolls out another phase of his ministry, he does so in complete health - spirit, soul and body - and with a powerful equipping by the Holy Spirit for teaching the Gospel to the 21st century Church.  His mission is clear for these critical times - to deliver the good news of the Kingdom to those thirsting for a deeper knowledge of God, and to unify and strengthen the body of Christ with the enduring message of the love of God in action.

Maintained an underground church for Jewish believers in Jerusalem during the late 1970's and early 1980's.  During that time, his passion for the Jewish people led him to an opportunity to define the Balfour Agreement, or the "Historic Law of Return", which was tried and upheld in the Supreme Court of Israel.  The court decision ruled that a Jew is a Jew by birth, not religion.  As a result, a Jew can no longer be deported from Israel for accepting Christ.

Established and supported the Gospel Hootenanny concert series in Oklahoma City that ran from the late 1960's to the late 1980's.  The summer concert series was used as an evangelism tool using music and testimony in an outdoor setting to attract the sinner.  The Gospel Hootenanny became a standard local summer event, introducing thousands of people, young and old, to Jesus Christ, changing their lives forever.

Having had the opportunity to share the Gospel with the world, this ministry has seen the healing of a multitude of diseases as well as miraculous deliverances from crippling bondage and demonic possession.

Earned a Doctorate in Biblical Studies from the Christian university in Hawaii.

Has authored the Eschatology of Hope, a historicist's view of the book of Revelation, soon to be published.
