About The Family

Home  >>  About The Family


Pastors Rick and Nina Tidwell  founded Ponce Church, the first church in the history of Ponce Inlet – Established in 2003.

The Tidwell family 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 enjoys riding his motorcycle and loves to help others discover God for themselves through reading the Bible.  Pastor Nina loves to write and enjoys photography, and has a passion for seeing Homeless Women off the street and in safe, permanent housing, which has inspired their vision for Ponce Village – Homeless Women Housing.
Both Pastors Rick and Nina published their first book together “The Main Thing” and their second book The Right Thing.  Pastor Nina Tidwell has recently published her book: LOVE AWAKENS on Amazon.

Their youngest son Robert has recently married his new bride, Mary. Their oldest son Rich  loves his wife Brandi, their daughter Reinette, their son Kingsley James, and their new bundle of Joy, Tiernan Caleb. Rich is the founder and Pastor of our sister church: Ormond Church. Although Pastor Nina is the Visionary of Legacy House, Rich and Brandi founded the Legacy Housing Project in Ormond, our first home for girls aging out of the foster care system.

They love serving the Lord as a family in the beautiful town of Ponce Inlet and Ormond Beach –  helping those in need by helping the orphan, feeding the hungry and giving water to the thirsty (Matthew 25:31-46) and providing housing for homeless women.
