Candy Christmas is the Founder and President of The Bridge Ministry, Inc. Candy has spent her life giving to others through music. She began her career as an adolescent, and quickly climbed to the top of the Christian charts. Later, she married and happily settled into family life, but she wanted a way to continue her ministry of giving. Her heart's desire is to make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate. That is what prompted her to start The Bridge Ministry in 2004.
The Bridge Ministry is now a vital part of the city. Feeding the poor and the homeless, they're fed at the beginning of the service. Then they're invited to stay for church under the bridge. At the end of the evening, Candy and her team give away brand new clothing, toiletries, and groceries.
"I was born into a record deal," Candy recalls. "It was just what I did. Now I do this because I have a purpose."
