I went to a strip club


I personally known a woman- a dancer, a loving mother, a recovering addict, a student, a human being – who was helped by a ministry like this. This gentle, humble ministry is what Jesus was all about.

strip clubA while back I was asked by a group of pastor’s wives to go with them to strip clubs.

That sentence alone sounds strange. But hang with me.

At first I was a little hesitant. And not for reasons you might think.

I love people. Especially ones who are broken; it’s part of my calling. But, given what I’ve walked through, I know how fragile broken people can be.

And I know how insensitive the church can be.

And I was uneasy.

But, these weren’t just any pastors wives.

They had a vision.

One that longed to love on women that society had thrown aside.

It reminded me a lot of Jesus.

So, I jumped on it.

Their plan was to visit these clubs once a month to deliver a meal and gift baskets. I joined them the first night and I’ll be honest, I had NO IDEA what to expect.

  1. Really enjoyed reading this peace. God bless u for sharing it

  2. I saw that earlier and thought it was beautiful. The part that really got to me was the dancer who told them they were a lot different from other church people, who write nasty letters. Really…

    • Yep. Lots of work trying to undo the hate and meanness that push people away. It’s a good thing love is ultimately stronger than hate, but we gotta get love out into the world however we can. Thanks for putting Just a Jesus Follower’s post out there to be shared.

  3. That was a beautiful story. it left me with a lot. I pray for our sisters broken and unbroken
