Sharing the hope & love of Jesus with exploited & trafficked women in Atlanta

Nearly 15 years ago when I walked into a strip club for the first time, I was simply following the Lord’s direction. I gathered a group of women and their husbands and we began praying and fasting for the Lord to open doors in our city! God never fails, and about 18 months after committing weekly to this prayer time the Lord opened the first door to the clubs.

I believe God is already preparing the hearts of women in the industry in Atlanta. He is passionate about these women and will move mountains for us to reach them!

With your help, we can bring our model of outreach, discipleship, and career development to this city. To do this, we need prayer, volunteers, and funding. Please consider how God may be calling you to support our mission in Atlanta.

Let’s go!
