Strippers for Jesus: Former Dancer Makes It Her Mission to Save Others


Hindman said the dark side of this tawdry business tends to get lost in a culture where pop stars like Rihanna celebrate the sexiness of pole dancing, as she recently did in her music video, "Pour It Up." And, according to Hindman, the only difference between Miley Cyrus twerking at the Video Music Awards and getting a lap dance at a strip club is just the venue and the performer.

"You watch people like Miley Cyrus, or Rihanna, doing her video about stripping, it's for the girl that wants to be loved, and doesn't come from a good environment, and looks to these stars to resemble and, be like, 'oh, that must be how it is to be sexy,'" Hindman said. "How do you repair all the damage that you set yourself up with? It's years of layers of uncovering, to heal all that brokenness."

Her belief that other dancers also feel trapped, just as she did, is what motivates Hindman to go into clubs. She believes in her group's mission and prays she can help others find the path to redemption.

"I felt like I was stained and God could not remove that and he has," she said. "There's reason for everything in that God did something good with my story and all of our stories and every weekend I go back I get in awe of how great God is and it is all worth it."
