Jim And Rhonda Catanzaro To Lead Nell Mohney Singles

Thursday, June 29, 2017

The search committee for the Nell Mohney Singles Sunday School class at First-Centenary United Methodist Church announced that beginning July 2 the class will be led by Jim and Rhonda Catanzaro.

The class meets in the Oak Street Center from 9:30-10:30 a.m. each Sunday.

Under Nell Mohney’s leadership, the Singles Class grew in size to over 150 members and impacted singles throughout East Tennessee and North Georgia. After her death last year, a search committee was organized to seek leaders who would continue to grow and nurture the class in Nell’s footsteps. Dr. Catanzaro has been a frequent substitute teacher for the class and Mrs. Catanzaro a soloist and song leader.  Dr. and Mrs. Catanzaro were the overwhelming selection by the class to lead, inspire and return the class to a regional center for adult singles ministries, said officials. 

Dr. Catanzaro earned his Ph.D. in Philosophy of Religion from Claremont Graduate University in California after earning a divinity degree from Talbot Theological Seminary.  He taught college courses in philosophy, world history, and religions of the world for over 50 years, and he served as president of four colleges over 38 years before his retirement from Chattanooga State in 2014. He has written and spoken nationally and internationally about spiritual well-being as well as on educational leadership issues. He is currently senior advisor to leading learning technology firms.      

Mrs. Catanzaro earned her Masters in Education from UTC and retired from the field of education in 2011.  She is a well-known community theater actress, and has served as soloist and song leader for United Methodist Women’s conferences at Lake Junaluska and area churches. 

The Nell Mohney Singles Sunday School class is an oasis for anyone who is single by circumstance or by choice, and is open to everyone from any or no particular denomination, said officials. More information may be found by calling First-Centenary United Methodist Church at 756-2021.
