Founder/Director - Candace Riner
Princess in His Image Ministries was founded in 2010 by Candace Riner. Candace has a passion for helping preteen and teen girls have a reverent understanding of their Creator while embracing their value and true beauty in the Lord. She is committed to teaching the principles of inner beauty and a Christ-centered life while inspiring girls down the narrow path to live a fully consecrated life for Christ. Candace’s desire in life is to see Christ glorified and for girls to grow in a personal relationship with Him. She realized the desire God placed on her heart and is now equipping girls with sound biblical instruction to be princesses in the image of Christ by giving Him the honor and glory for all things.
Candace is uniquely qualified for her role with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Speech Communications. Candace has been in play productions, a musician, a performer, and a beauty queen. She is an active member of First Baptist Church Hatfield, AR where she serves with her husband Andy. As a couple they work with their youth group as Sunday School teachers and assist with children’s events as well as plan and attend mission trips. Candace has over fifteen years experience as an instructor of dance and baton twirling, is a four-time Miss Arkansas Scholarship Pageant contestant and competed in various pageants for ten years winning seven local and district titles and one state title. Candace is currently a contributing writer for the Life & Style Publication of the Ouachita Trading Post and works part time as a Ministry Assistant for the Ouachita Baptist Association.
