XXX Church Moves to Vegas

www.xxxchurch.com

XXX Church, which we covered a few weeks ago, has recently moved their ministry from Michigan to Las Vegas. This makes perfect since because it is a capital for the Adult Entertainment Industry.

This is a place where 40 million people visit each year. Over 10,000 prostitutes work in Las Vegas. The sex industry alone in Vegas racks in 6 billion dollars a year. 

Here is an excerpt from the XXX Church site of why they have moved there:

Las Vegas centers around an area called “The Strip.” There are churches in the suburbs surrounding downtown, but nothing on the strip. Although the neon lights shine brightly on the Strip, this area is one of the darkest spiritually in our nation. We must not blame the dark for being dark, but instead need to blame the light for not shining on the darkness. It’s time for all of that to change. It’s time for the people who live and work on and travel to the Strip to have Isaiah 9:2 become a reality, “The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.” Jesus said, “I have come to seek and save the lost,” and Jesus called us to go into the darkness, to meet people where they are at, and to save the lost. For this very reason we have decided to bring XXXchurch to the strip. Something new, something different, something totally unexpected for those who live and work around the strip and the millions of people who visit Las Vegas each month.

So many Pastors and Leaders are criticizing them for what God has called them to do. They sometimes get more hate mail than encouragement from believers around the world.

Jesus did call us to go into all the world. Even the darkest places to show the light. 

Please take some time to pray for Craig Gross and his team at XXX Church.  Visit their site for ways that you can support their ministry.

  1. Hi, Sean

    I’ve heard of this ministry before and I don’t understand why anyone would object to it unless they don’t understand what it is. Looking at their front page, I can see how some people might get the wrong idea. I feel a little uneasy with it, like “I wonder what this is . . . should I be here?”, but I’m not exactly their demographic. At any rate, what they do is badly needed and not just by prostitutes in Vegas.

    I checked out your other links. A church I know in Cheyenne was doing the One Prayer thing. They were talking about it in their blogs and since I can’t attend their services, I wasn’t sure what it was all about. Really neat.

    I’ll have to look around at the bible site some more. I was tired the other night when I was checking it out and signing up and all and couldn’t quite figure out how it worked. I’m sure I’ll find my way around eventually. Thanks for sending me there. 🙂

    God bless,

    Cindy

  2. Hey Cindy, Thanks for writing. It is good to have you here. It is amazing was XXX Church is doing, because they also support Pastors and Leaders and anyone, with software that keeps them accountable online. I never knew but surveys have shown that 50% of Pastors deal with pornography. Wow that is a large number.

    One Prayer was really cool. You can visit the site http://www.oneprayer.com, they archived all of the messages.

    The bible site you version is awesome, just another way to have access to the word.

    Thanks again for reading, look forward to more conversations with you.
