Saturday, March 2, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (EST)
Cherry Hill, NJ
Have a heart to impact the adult industry with the love of God?
Who comprises the adult industry and why should I care?
How can I possibly make a difference?
- Did you know that more women are in the sex industry than any other time in history?
- Did you know there are more strip clubs in America than any other country in the world?
- Hollywood releases over 11,000 adult movies a year.
- The USA produces 89% of all pornographic web pages
- Up to 95% of women in the sex industry have been sexually abused as children
- Sex industry workers suffer PTSD at the same rate as returning soldiers
Join us for a one-day intensive training. You will be inspired and challenged as you gain insight into the sex industry and the real people behind the scenes. You will learn creative ways to reach sex industry workers and practical ways to make an impact. For those who already have an outreach team, we will help you take your ministry to the next level. For those who don't know where to begin.....we will help you launch.

Glad you asked:
Are men allowed to attend? Yes, we encourage it. The wealth of knowledge offered at training is quite beneficial for all. Fact is, many people in your church, your family, your job, are sexually broken. Training will be jam packed with statistics, experience, and factual info that will help you understand the heart behind the brokenness. Although our ministry is predominantly for the women in the club; we do interact with male managers, bouncers and employees whose hearts are touched as well. We need men who are trained who will be able to reach men from this background. However, this training is not an endorsement for men to wonder off as lone rangers on a mission. Accountability, responsibility and wisdom must prevail. We only take women into the clubs, but do have male drivers.
What age may attend? 18+ (under 18 with an adult and parental permission)
Is training for me? The training we offer will give you a great depth of insight into the sex industry. We are reaching close to 300 women a month in the South Jersey and Philadelphia area. These numbers will grow as our teams grow. It is imperative that churches and individuals understand their hearts, their brokenness and their specific needs. Simply put, this training is quite beneficial.
Will I be part of Emerge Strip Church afterward? Our teams are growing and training is mandatory to partake in our outreaches. However, attendance does not secure a spot on outreach team
Can I partner with Emerge but not go into strip clubs? Absolutely yes. This will be discussed in detail at training.
