Show your Appreciation for First Responders

Snohomish Candle Co. has created a Special Edition candle to show appreciation to our Nation’s First Responders and support the work of Mission First Alliance.

“Real Hope for Heroes” is a 100% natural palm wax candle. The fragrance is a stimulating and rejuvenating blend of orange, lavender, fir and sandalwood. Available in either blue or red.

Snohomish Candle Co. crafts pure palm wax candles by hand, one small batch at a time, using the finest ingredients, so your candle experience can be beautiful, natural, and healthy. They use wax produced from the fruit of the oil palm tree to create a long and clean burning candle with no soot. It is an environmentally friendly product. Their candles have a unique marbled appearance that melds beautifully with natural color dyes and scents, producing a translucent, glowing effect when lit.

Snohomish Candle Co. is owned by John and Laurie Stuckey. John is a retired Fire Captain and spent 15 years after retirement traveling the country administering promotional tactical exams for fire departments.

20% of the proceeds from each “Real Hope for Heroes” candle purchase will be donated to Mission First Alliance. We are grateful for this partnership with Snohomish Candle Co. to offer a unique way to show your appreciation for First Responders and support the Alliance.

Jeremy Wade is the Executive Director of Mission First Alliance. He served for the Seattle Police Department for 13 years, but struggled with his identity in Christ vs his identity in the badge early in his career. After a few years on the department he fully surrendered his life to the Lord, which started an amazing journey that the Lord has been blessing along the way. While not free from challenges like the Seattle riots, and many critical incidents, Jeremy could see God’s hand in directing his paths. On the Seattle PD, Jeremy was awarded Officer of the Year, and Medal of Valor. He worked in patrol, in the training unit, as a peer support coordinator, and assisted in developing the department’s first wellness unit. He co-founded the SPD Beds for Kids Program with Ryan Gallagher, which continues on today. Jeremy also served as the executive director of the Seattle Police Chaplains Association and came alongside many other local and national first responder ministries. In 2021, Jeremy, his wife Ketryna, and four kids felt God calling them to move to Tennessee and step out in faith to do full-time ministry, supporting first responders nationwide. This led to serving as the Training & Development Coordinator for the Fellowship of Christian Peace Officers- USA until God started directing his path and opening doors to start Mission First Alliance.
