Introducing Candace: SEND Hospitality Assistant

By Lydia Gingerich

Over the next few weeks we will be introducing our 2018 SEND Interns. This group of seven REACH graduates will spend the year deepening their relationship to God and his Kingdom through serving at the RIC and being discipled by the SEND Department. RMM is grateful for their hard work and is excited to see them grow this year.


Candace serves as a hospitality assistant at the RIC. She is from Pryor, Oklahoma – making her the 2018 SEND Intern who traveled the farthest to get to Columbus.

During the 2016-17 REACH year, Candace was on Team Himalayas, and one of the things she appreciated about being in that part of the world were the thunderstorms. “You’d be sleeping and then all at once, it comes out of nowhere real fast. I just love that energy.” She also loves being outside when it is not storming and says that one of her favorite things to do is hang up her hammock and listen to the birds.

“His incredible outpouring of love in her life has been a deep comfort to her and she wants to spend her life sharing that with others.”It was also during REACH that she began to experience God as a close friend. His incredible outpouring of love in her life has been a deep comfort to her and she wants to spend her life sharing that with others. She feels especially called to work with teenage women and looks forward to getting experience working with young people in both City Challenge and REACH this year.

Please pray that Candace would continue to experience the love of God and that those around her would see and respond to that love.
