Carving a distinct path away from vanity and towards service to others, Christian Miss helps young women shine bright in this world by becoming positive, bold, and uncompromising role models. Our program is designed to help each participant discover the greatness that already lies inside of her and use it to impact her generation and her community. Christian Miss stands as a consistent promoter of the enduring power of what the Bible calls unfading beauty (1 Peter 3:3-4), and the profound impact the one who possesses it can have on the world.
We are a pageant ministry, and we believe an eternal relationship with Jesus Christ creates an unfading beauty that causes inner beauty to emanate from a person's character. This form of beauty is what becomes visible to the beholder.

Christian Miss is a pageant ministry. It’s a place where young women discover who they are in Christ. This system sees the beauty that is inside of you. Competing in this pageant system helped me build my confidence and encouraged me to build my relationship with God. As the 2022-2023 National Christian Miss, I was able to be of service in my community and showcase my personal platform #LetYourFroGlow. Christian Miss is a beautiful sisterhood and I’m so grateful to be apart of it. It helped me grow into the strong and empowered woman I am today.

“I immediately fell in love with the Christian Miss pageant system right when I walked into check-in! I had an absolute blast at this pageant! Everything was so amazing! At the pageant, we had bible studies, formal wear, interview, platform presentation, and optionals. It was so much fun to get to know all of the girls and pray together daily. Our director, Yvette Barnes, had so much positive energy and is a true role model to me! ...This pageant truly bolstered my confidence in myself. I learned that I am God’s perfect image.”
~Vanessa Koelling, from the book Road To The Crown Vol. 2
"The Christian Miss National pageant was amazing. A week filled with positive energy and great pageantry. The event is held at the Historic Gorton Theater in beautiful Lake Forest Illinois. The stage was increadible and the seating very comfortable. Yvette and her team treated us girls like queens all week long. The staff was positive (only good vibes), joyful and professional. Cash prizes were awarded for optional titles in addition to the queens prize package. This pageant is good for both beginners and the pros. Six age divisions. I had a wonderful time and will definitely be back in the future!"
