What if Jesus was serious when he identified you as the “light on the hill,” the one who is meant to “go and be a light unto the world”? What if He had a plan to deeply impact the lives of hundred or thousands of women through you? Would you want to be part of that plan?
We believe that’s exactly what He desires. We believe God wants to equip you to meet the needs of the women in your city by His love and connecting in ways that allow you to speak life and bring encouragement.
Keep reading to find out more about how you can be fully trained to start a ministry in your city and have ongoing encouragement, resources and support through the Strip Church Network. Welcome. Don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions!
You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.
Jesus Said GO
He met with His disciples and He told them to GO and make disciples of ALL nations. He wasn’t passive, He didn’t say “if you go” He said GO. Have you ever been comforted through a rough situation in your life? Given hope by someone? God tells us that He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. Jesus had a special place in his heart for women in these situations. He spent time investing in these women, listening to their hearts, demonstrating His love, and encouraging them. He asks you and I to do the same.
Strip Church Network
The Strip Church network is the best place to start developing your ministry team to reach women working in the sex industry. You will find encouragement, experience, prayer, resources and power for ministry. The network membership is a privilege and not an entitlement just because someone is in ministry. We are a team and anyone who wants to be a part of our network and can align with our Strip Church vision can fill out our online application to request membership which includes all of your training. We want to be like-minded so it is important if you are going to link arms with Strip Church that you understand our foundation and premise. We know that there are different styles of outreach and ministry. We know that not everyone will always see eye to eye on things but as long as our foundation and our basic ideas about how to serve women are the same we’re excited to champion you in your efforts!
Tammy was a dancer in a Philadelphia strip club but now she just got baptized and loves Jesus. What changed? Tammy met Kelly.
Who is Kelly? Kelly is a stay at home mom of five who has been showing up at Philadelphia clubs with gifts and her light. Kelly never asked Tammy to quit or for anything else. She just kept showing up with love and encouragement, to let Tammy and the other dancers know that they were on her mind and worth investing in.
Thinking, “No way could I ever do that?” Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Just about every one has used that excuse but God can and wants to use YOU.
What Others Are Saying
“I never would have thought I would go into a strip club for any reason but things changed. I was reminded of my own friends who had worked in clubs and how desperately I wanted them to be impacted by God’s love. Why wouldn’t I go and do that for the women in my city?
“I once held disdain towards women that dressed provocatively due to problems in my marriage. They were in some way a threat to me who was trying to live right. Until one day God showed me how He see’s these women… and it was exactly as He see’s me. Some may say ” BUT IN A STRIP CLUB?!” Yes! He didn’t say to just go into the tidy and comfortable places– He said ALL the world and EVERYONE. My life has never been the same. I can honestly say today THIS is where I would rather be called to serve than anywhere else.”
Join With Us
We started XXXchurch.com in 2002 inside an adult expo. We were solo. The only religious people that ever thought of doing this went outside with megaphones. We went inside with love. Over the years, we have been invited to exhibit at all the major shows across the world. We have been to 100 of them in 15 years. At different shows we have come across other ministries that have taken up booth space and part of us feels like we have paved the way and the other part of us wishes they would just reach out and join with us. Not every wants to work with you. Working together is difficult. Some groups have come and gone over the years and very few have stuck around like we have. Some Christian groups have given away popcorn and taken prayer requests, other Christian groups have told porn stars they have STD’s and they needed to stop. We don’t agree with what every group does but in the end we don’t have to. The moment we think that what they do over there might hurt what we do over here or might not be as cool or good as what we’re doing.. we miss the point.
