Reach. Restore. Redeem.
“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are!”

of women in the sex industry say they want out, but see no other means for survival.
of women trafficked end up working in the commercial sex industry.
of exotic dancers have been physically assaulted in the clubs they work at.
of women in the commercial sex industry experience PTSD equivalent to veterans of combat war.
Since 2014, we have worked tirelessly to bridge the gap between the church and women in the commercial sex industry. Our ministry brings a message of hope to women involved in any facet of the commercial sex industry. Facets include the legal side of the industry (strip clubs, adult stores, sugaring, camming, and the porn industry) and/or the illegal side (erotic massage parlors, escort agencies, pimping, and survivors of sex trafficking or sexual exploitation). Our core values are unconditional love, compassion, and relationship. We seek to reach, restore, and redeem. Lavished Ministries reminds women that their story is not over.
The women in the commercial sex industry face issues that affect their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. They are a largely un-reached population, and many feel desperately isolated and alone.
“The harvest is plentiful, the laborers few,”
Negative stigmas coupled with fear of condemnation, judgment, and rejection keep many women from speaking up, seeking help, and finding the resources they need.
This is why our dedicated team of compassionate women at Lavished Ministries visit numerous sexually-oriented businesses on a monthly basis. Through bringing gifts, understanding, empathy, and the deep love of Christ, we build relationships with the adult entertainers and staff. Every month we reach over 140 individuals during outreach. Over the past 8 years, we have made over 15,000 points of contact with those impacted by the adult entertainment industry.
