Candace loves the Urbana Team’s emphasis on seeking God’s voice and the chance to speak into the lives of world changers. Her parents encouraged her to serve others from a young age, and after spending time in Haiti, Nicaragua, and Europe, she’s developed a passion for the vulnerable and homeless. One of the most profound moments of her life has been praying for people who share that no one in their life has ever prayed for them. She believes that this should drive Christians to take God’s message of hope everywhere. She currently lives in Madison, Wisconsin.
