A “Strip Church” ministry in Tennessee that aims to give love and support to dancers throughout strip clubs in Nashville, Tenn., is being credited by a former stripper for helping her leave the job and have a transformed life. The ex-stripper gives much of the credit to Erin Stevens, the founder of the ministry.
The ministry, which began after Stevens received direction from God to “go feed the strippers,” entails Stevens’ visiting strip clubs to provide home cooked meals for the women while providing moral support.
Sarah, (whose name is being withheld to protect her identity) 23, was just one of the women who Stevens came across during one of her visits. The former exotic dancer had moved to Nashville in search of a fresh start for her children and herself after her marriage dissolved following her husband’s extramarital affairs. However, after attempting to make ends meet by sewing custom-made clothes, she realized she needed another financial outlet, leading her to become a stripper to pay bills.
“I slept on two quilts stacked on the floor because I was not making any money,” Sarah said. “I had never used my looks to make money and that was the first time I had to resort to it.”
