Meet The Tidwell Family



Our founding church Ponce Church was established in Ponce Inlet in 2003 after the Lord led Pastor Rick and his family to start the first church in the history of this beautiful town. We are a family that loves to serve Jesus by helping others in need. Jesus said, “You are the Light of the world…” and “Let your Light shine that mankind will see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Pastor Rick (founder of Ponce Church) loves to read, ride his Suzuki Intruder motorcycle with his beautiful wife Nina. He also enjoys the beach and SUP boarding.  Pastor Nina (Co-founder of Ponce Church) loves to write and enjoys photography. Pick up a copy of her New Book: LOVE AWAKENS at Ponce Church, also available on Kindle and Paperback at Amazon.

Both Pastors Rick and Nina published their first book together “The Main Thing” and their second book, “The Right Thing”.

Their youngest son Robert and his new bride and beautiful wife Mary are enjoying their new life together.  Robert is the founder of Tidwell Media – Graphic Design and Mary is studying to become a Midwife.

Their oldest son Rich  loves his beautiful wife Brandi and their children Reinette, Kingsley, Kylan and Tiernan. He is the founder and Pastor of our sister church: Ormond Church. Together Rich and Brandi are the Founders and Directors of The Legacy Housing Project – safe housing for girls aging out of the foster care system.

We are a family dedicated to the ministry of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Jesus commandment to love our neighbor with action by helping others in need and equipping God’s people to do the same. Jesus has made a difference in our life and in our family. He can do the same for you.
