Rhona Hands – Worship Director

Rhona Hands has been on staff serving as Worship Director at Tidewater Central since April 2010. She has served in numerous ministries over the years, but her concentration has been on the music programs in the Church of the Nazarene since graduating from Mid-America Nazarene College (now University) with a BA degree in Church Music and Religious Education. Her passion for playing Christian music on the piano was developed in her teen years and she enjoys giving praise & worship to God through her music. Originally from Kansas, she grew up on a farm there, and then moved to New Orleans, Louisiana after graduating from college and began her ministry in a small Nazarene church there. She had gone to New Orleans on a 6 week college work and witness trip and was led to move there and continue working in that church after graduating. In Dec of 2001, she moved from New Orleans to the Tidewater area and began attending & being involved at TCN. Her outside interests include spending time with her sister & brother-in-law who live here also, gardening, reading, & vacationing back to Kansas or taking cruises.
