In 2002, we showed up at a porn show. Not outside with signs and megaphones.
We showed up inside because we care. All these years later, we are still showing
up in your world because we still care about you.
Pretty simple Jesus Loves Porn Stars. You can read about our belief in Jesus here. We are serious about this.
We long to live and love like that. In 2002 our then very small X3team went into the first AVN convention to love on both the consumer and the workers there. This approach was very different from other “religious” organizations present outside of the convention with their posters and megaphones preaching a message of law and hate. Over a decade + later our love is just as strong if not stronger for those inside the walls of the sex industry.
The JLPS tee first debuted in 2004. Our friend Jason Locy created the original art. The message is simple that no matter who you are or what you have done, Jesus loves you. We give out thousands of these shirts every year for free at the porn shows we attend. The shirt is the most popular shirt we have for sale at the X3store as well.
The JLPS Bible debuted in June of 2006 at the Erotica L.A. convention in Los Angeles. We gave out over 3,000 of these Bibles for free in less than 24 hours. The Bible outreach was covered by Time magazine, the LA Times, ABC World News Tonight, and was one of the top stories of 2006 according to the Associated Press. In 2007, we gave out over 15,000 of these Bibles at four different porn shows we attended.
We have been blessed to help a number of people from the adult industry through our Esther Fund Project
Here are a few that we can tell you about.
There are many others who have asked us to keep their stories confidential.
We have numerous resources available in many cities throughout the United States. If you are in the sex-industry and need assistance, please fill out our Get Connected form if you would like personal assistance and resources.
We have spent over twelve years working with people in the sex industry and have attended over 70 porn conventions across the world. One thing we have consistently heard is that working in porn is not the first choice for many who end up there.
We understand why/how people get in the industry and why they continue to work there. We don’t judge or criticize people for choosing this type of work.
After attending a training, you are invited to join the Strip Church Network an exclusive group of 80+ ministries around the world reaching out to their local sex industry. The Network is supported through monthly training conference calls, additional resources, networked websites, private blogs, prayer, and branded materials to use inside the clubs.
This sounds formal but it is anything but formal. We have learned a lot after doing this kind of work for many years. So many people have a passion for this but don’t know how. We have found the very best of the best people out there that are doing this type of work and have connected them together in this network.
First, let me tell you that you are not alone. We get emails and phone calls regularly from parents who discover their children are involved in pornography, stripping or escort/prostitution work. While we are not counselors and we don’t have all the answers, we can offer encouragement and support and some suggestions to help you love your son or daughter right where they are. Here are some suggested Do’s and Don’ts:
