Who We Are

Passion Partners provides leadership and funding to existing ministries,
as well as emerging ministries around the world,
with the express goal of walking alongside our partners in a collaborative effort,
allowing them to be more productive in THEIR call and in fulfilling THEIR passion.

Her Passion, Our Mission

On June 4, 2007 Candice’s life changed forever. Her husband, a cardiac surgery resident, was killed when his Life Flight jet crashed into Lake Michigan while transporting life-saving organs. At 34, she was left with a 4 year old, a 2 year old, and an infant with Down’s Syndrome.

Less than two months later, she was invited to share her story for the first time. “I didn’t even know what my testimony was going to be, much less be able to speak positively about it, but I trusted God with the opportunity to bear witness of a ‘hope and a future’ (Jer 29:11) and accepted the invitation.” And she’s been teaching ever since.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD,
plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future.”


In January 2010, Candice felt God was impressing upon her to expand her teaching ministry to include reaching . . .
being the hands and the feet of the Gospel.  That was the beginning of Passion Partners.

Passion Partners recognizes that external ideas are not always internally effective. In other words, American ideas don’t always translate into viable answers to questions that seek sustainable solutions in other countries, particularly underdeveloped countries. We value the human resource and talent in the communities that we support and are committed to building partnerships with local organizations and leaders.
