We are a group of women captivated by the unconditional love of Christ, elevating our voices for the purpose of sharing this love with women in the sex industry, as well as other marginalized women here and abroad. Our goal is to intentionally serve them right where they are while bearing witness to the truth that there is a God who loves them beyond measure. We are rooted in God's word, planted in His body, and gathered under the authority of the local church. We have a passion to be a part of restoring the grace, beauty, and worth of Eve. Our desire is that these women would experience the breaking of chains and healing of wounds through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Issues Impacting Women:
More women are employed by the sex industry than any other time in history. There are more strip clubs in the United States than any other nation in the world. The shame and secrecy surrounding sexual abuse make it difficult to get accurate data regarding incidents among women in the sex industry. The studies that have been done reveal that between 66-90% of women in the sex industry were sexually abused as children. The women in this industry face a myriad of issues that impact their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Stripping or sex work is often a symptom of a larger root issue. These girls are largely an unreached population and many feel desperately isolated and alone. Even those who would contemplate going to church wonder if there truly is a place for them there. Will they find the restoration they are seeking in the house of God?
What We Offer:
Each month, the EVE team visits strip clubs employing hundreds of women and gives out gift bags filled with cosmetics and jewelry and the simple message that the women working in these clubs are 'loved beyond measure, daughters of the King!' Each woman who contacts EVE receives an individualized care package with books and resources intended to bring inspiration and to encourage her in her faith. Passionate, trained volunteers follow up with each woman who contacts EVE and offers lay counseling and life coaching for those who desire it. Support is also offered in the form of referrals for employment opportunities, professional counseling, and other services that will assist her on the journey of flourishing into the woman that God created her to be.
