Though it’s not often talked about, ministry can be scary. Stepping out on faith and trusting that God has given you everything you need to accomplish your call can be overwhelming. God will often send someone to help you through. Someone to help you navigate the new territory, and that person is Candi. As a coach, Candi does exactly that! However, she not only gives you direction and guidance, she supports you with an enthusiastic love and care that is so needed. She’s a consummate professional demonstrating great expertise in coaching. She’s knowledgeable with the ability to function in various contexts. She just doesn’t have a gift of leading, but a God-given gift of affirmation, edification and encouragement. That’s what she did for me and my church. You know Candi is pulling for you to succeed and for God to get the glory!
