Since 2014, the Tidwell Family, Ponce Church and many volunteers have served over 30,000 meals to the Homeless Community in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Over the years they have had the privilege of connecting with them, look them in the eyes and smile. Some choose to not look up for fear of being judged, but when they do lift their head they meet love – A love that points no fingers; a love that says,  You are Welcome here.

Pastor Nina Tidwell, has had many opportunities to talk and pray with a number of Homeless Women, learn their names, give them hugs, and let them know they are loved.

Nina and her family share the same heart – to care for the orphan, widow, and the poor. James 1:27.

Both Ponce Church and Ormond Church are active in helping those in need within their community.

In 2015 studies estimated there are 565,000 Homeless in the USA on any given night – 40% are Women. Over 1 Million people experience Homelessness each year.

TABITHA’ HOUSING of Ponce Village Homeless Women Housing:

The Tidwell family has had an ongoing desire to provide Housing for Adult Homeless Women, the Widows, in our community.
(James 1:27, Matthew 25:31-46)

TABITHA’S HOUSE of Ponce Village – is not a temporary shelter, but a Long-Term solution. Since providing meals for the homeless community, Pastor Nina developed a strong desire to not only provide a Home, but a Family, with opportunities they would not have in any other environment.  

Pastor Nina provides Love and Godly counsel, as we have provided for our Legacy Family.

Jesus said it perfectly, “I was hungry and you fed me, thirsty and you gave me something to drink, naked and you clothed me, sick and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me, homeless and you gave me shelter…if you’ve done it to the least of these, my brothers and sisters, you’ve done it to me.” Matthew 25:31-46.

Pastor Nina has been a Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ for 40 Years:

Pastor Nina has been a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ for 40 years, and has been in Full-Time Ministry as a Pastor and Teach for 20 years after the launch of Ponce Church, the First Church in the History of Ponce Inlet, FL.  She teaches the commands of Jesus to Love and what that Loves means according to the Word of God and she also teaches the Authority of the Believer; who we are “In Christ Jesus” the the Authority Jesus has given to His church, the body of Christ. (Luke 10:19, Ephesians 1, 2 and 3.) She has also been called by God to “Encourage My Daughters” where she teaches women their rightful place given them in the body of Christ as Ministers, Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers (Ephesians 4, Jesus gave Gifts to the “church” the body of Christ.) As the Apostle Paul commends 5 Women Ministers in Romans 16. Pastor Nina also teaches Wives that men are not Superior to women, see her blog, “Did God give Adam Rule Over Eve” and “All One In Christ Jesus.”
Galatians 3:28, There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
