Lace Ministries started in December 2015 with a first outreach to 20 women in one San Angelo, Texas strip club. Today we reach about 200 strippers and strip club staff in nine clubs throughout the greater West Texas area, stretching from Amarillo to Abilene.
Our outreaches are an opportunity to give each entertainer a gift bag filled with cosmetics, jewelry, and other girly things, along with the simple message that they are loved and valued, and that we are here to support them. We also provide prayer and a listening ear when requested.
Lace Ministries visits drag queens in their venues to proclaim that they are loved by Christ. By providing love and acceptance, we are able to focus on Christ's desire to have a relationship with these entertainers using a non-judgmental approach. Based on the philosophy that hate stems from misunderstanding and fear, we also strive to educate those outside of the drag community to bridge the gap that creates conflict with this treasured population.
Prostitution is viewed as an economic necessity by some women in certain regions of Mexico, brought about by conditions of extreme poverty. With this necessity often comes a shunning from the family and the community. Our outreaches in Mexico are similar to the United States, in that we take a message of Christ's love and hope to the streets, meeting with la prostitutas where they are.
The mission of Lace is to display the love of Christ through no-strings-attached relationships with women in the sex industry, whether still working or retired but in need of support. Through this relationship, Lace desires to become a resource for hope and healing when the need arises. It is not our desire to judge anyone for their actions but to accept them for who they are with a love that is given freely and without obligation. Lace desires to create awareness, educate others, and facilitate restoration. Lace Ministries is a division of Lace Warriors, Inc.
Lace Warriors / Lace Ministries was formed as 501(c)3 non-profit organization December 2015. We initially began serving in the San Angelo, Texas area but grew to include the entertainers of Abilene in 2016. We didn't stop there, as God called us to expand to Odessa in 2017 and Amarillo in 2018. In 2019 we began outreaching in Lubbock, and in Acuna, Mexico.
