Rachel Ward

Interim Director of Discipleship

I am honored to serve as Interim Director of Discipleship at Providence. My time includes organizing Christian Education for our children, collaboration on the Wednesday night family programming, educational outreach to the community, and fellowship building activities for our congregation. In short, I encourage Providence to learn about God and grow closer to each other!


My husband and I moved to Hilton Head in the Spring of 2018. We moved here due to the great opportunities and warmth offered at Providence Church and - oh course - because it is Hilton Head Island. Previously, I had served as a Clinical Psychologist and, in my early career, a high school teacher. Over the next year, I will be also working in psychology in Beaufort County.

Bill and I are parents to two adult sons: Jon who is 22 and Will who is 25. I enjoy reading, swimming in the ocean, camping, eating, family, and learning. Our entire family dotes on and is exasperated by our rescue dog, Gracie.
