Everyone knows that the source of a well run organization can be found in the excellent people that keep it running smoothly each and every day!  For more than twenty years, Divine Redeemer Lutheran Church & School has been blessed with such a person- Mrs. Renee Kandler.  Though her official title is Business Manager, it won’t surprise anyone to know that she very successfully wears many different “hats” of responsibility.  Whether she is keeping good checks and balances on financial matters, organizing day to day needs, preparing financial reports for church and school, or assisting with audits, Mrs. Kandler continues to be one of the backbones of this organization!

Renee Kandler ~ Mrs. Kandler wasn’t even thinking of going back to work full time while taking care of her two young children at the time, Ryan and Rebecca (Becca).  But when the secretarial position at Divine Redeemer Lutheran School became available, she quickly found the Lord had special plans for her!  She accepted that position and a decade later she became the full-time Business Manager until she became the CFO in January 2017.  Prior work experience included helping at her families’ restaurant called “Kandler’s on Keesus”.   She loves the family atmosphere of the school and presently is involved in Bible studies at the church.  She is married to her husband, Rick, and they have two adult children.  Her son, Ryan, is married to Lorna, and they blessed Renee with her first grandchild, Karter, in July 2015.  They live in the Merton area.  Becca, Mrs. Kandler's daughter, is the Assistant Daycare Manager here at Divine Redeemer and she loves taking care of the children.  Mrs. Kandler is looking forward to spending time with her grandson and she enjoys time on Lake Kessus and watching Packer games!  She predicts the Packers will win the Super Bowl again this year!
