About Us

Find Out a Bit More about Our Team and History

We serve, teach, and equip women across the world who share a heart and calling to reach those in the sex industry.

We train new leaders to do strip club and sex-industry ministry in their home cities. We do this through an online training workshop platform with our top leaders.  We also will come to any church who wants to host a training event for a start up ministry in their church or surrounding cities.  Our Strip Church Network is supported through ongoing interaction with members of our staff as well as members of the network through networked websites, calls, resources, blogs, prayer, and branded materials to use inside the clubs as well as on your own websites. Strip Church is led by forward-thinking women and men who are reaching out into the sex-industry in incredible ways. Through our private network-only discussion pages, blogs and alumni events, you will hear from a range of leaders who are having incredible impact through their separate ministries. Strip Church was started in 2008 by the team behind XXXchurch in Las Vegas and quickly grew to a network of like minded ministries from across the world.
