    The Retirement of Craig Gross

    150 150 Strip Church

    This one is bittersweet to write.  I (Michelle) have been with Strip Church since its launch on the Las Vegas strip over a decade ago.  I’ve seen this ministry go from an idea that was birthed out of XXXchurch to a full-blown on-the-ground ministry in over 200 cities across the United States, Canada, Mexico, and…

    150 150 Strip Church

    photo by Olivia Alnes Those three words have been known to land us all kinds of looks. From the hope and wonder found in the eyes of a woman in the dressing room of a strip club to the laughs coming from ignorant church and non-church folks alike.

    I was eating breakfast, just taking it all in, and wondered how I even got here.

I have been traveling to Mexico for several months to…

    I walked into the club with my friend and was greeted by the doorman. I had been praying for this first strip club outreach for a year, and now I was inside the club with gift bags in hand. I had painstakingly put the bags together the night before. Christmas gift bags loaded with makeup,…

    “Because You Bought Me Cigarettes, You Can Tell Me About Jesus.”

    150 150 Strip Church

    I remember the first time in ministry that I didn’t know what to do. It was five years ago when this ministry was just a thought, and I found myself in a car with a young woman traveling from Tallahassee to Panama City. As she was in the midst of detoxing from IV Methamphetamine use…

    Self-Care. It Isn’t What You Think.

    150 150 Strip Church

    Ministry of any kind requires practicing self-care, making sure your heart and mind are right before God and others. “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life” (Proverbs 4:23). Self-care is not just a stereotypical day at the spa.  It can feel quite the opposite at times. It means going…
