About Rhonda
  • Education: B.A. from the University of New Orleans M.Div. from Asbury Seminary
  • What my parents think of my sermons: My parents have always been supportive of my ministry, and loved my sermons... but also offered creative feedback. My Mom has even used some of my sermons as a guide when she has been called upon to preach.
  • Books that have had an impact: "The Contemplative Pastor" by Eugene Peterson was one of the most challenging books I have read lately. It causes one to really examine motives for ministry and our perpetual "busy-ness".
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: No matter who you are, where you are, or what you have done, God loves you, and is constantly seeking to draw you closer to Himself.
  • What I want on my tombstone: She went where she was sent!

    God changed Abram's name when he made the covenant with him. In the Bible, changing of names often indicates something significant happening in a person's life. When we let God into our life, things are different. God wants to enter into covenant relation

    Changing our Name Do ya’ll remember the show “let’s make a deal”? That was kinda fun, seeing who would wind up with the best deal from what they traded. They all traded hoping to get something better in exchange. How many of us try to make a deal with God in much the same more
