ABOUT OUR FIRST LADY
Candee McKibbins is the First Lady of Church of Atlanta Lighthouse, under the leadership of Pastor L. Timothy McKibbins. Bishop-Elect Timothy McKibbins and Lady Candee have been happily married since 1992. Together they have two wonderfully talented sons, Christopher & Bradley McKibbins, who are the leaders of the video/sound and music ministries. First Lady loves being a wife, as well as a mother, and she exemplifies how to balance home and work for the Kingdom. Bishop-Elect Timothy McKibbins and Lady Candee aspire to be an example for other Christian couples to know that you can live, love and lead like Christ in marriage.
At the age of twenty-one First Lady was in a head-on car crash, which altered the trajectory of her life. This accident has led to over twelve major surgeries, but to God be the Glory for his miraculous healing and keeping power. Lady Candee has an unwavering faith and total trust in God for her life. Her favorite scripture is Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
Lady Candee became a licensed minister in 2012 and was ordained in 2014. First Lady strives to unite the Lighthouse women, and to be an example of how women should see themselves and encourage others. Through her work for the ministry, First Lady birthed the idea of the women's ministry known as "God's Intentional Women" with the theme - Living on Purpose. One of her goals is to help women discover their God-given purpose and to utilize it to transform others for Kingdom service. Lady Candee also established "Gods Girls", a youth ministry for girls ages 1018, to have a safe haven to discuss important topics, and real-life situations they currently face as our youth.
First Lady proudly wears many hats for our church, which led to the start of the bi-annual "Hats and Pearls Affair" luncheon for ladies. Lady Candee hosts events such as this to celebrate and unify the women of God.
God called First Lady to a higher level in 2016 and she was elevated as an Elder. Her motto is to "see people the way God sees them, and to love them the way Jesus loves them". Lady Candee embodies the key principles of being a Preacher, Teacher, and Doer of God's Holy word. She believes people can feel the Love of the Lord through each smile, embrace, and encouraging word she gives them. First Lady is a Christian woman of faith, wisdom, poise and compassion, affectionately referred to as the Fragrance of Our House!
