WHO WE ARE
Doug and Christina Tipton
We find folks where they do life, and lead them to EVERLASTING life!
Doug and Christina reach out to the lost where they are at. They work as a team and raise up other women who can minister women at strip clubs, as well as those who are trapped in sex trafficking at massage parlors. The heart of their ministry is in loving these women where they are at, praying for them, showing them love, providing them personal items, and showing them that they have value far beyond their bodies and their sexuality.
When they first stepped into a strip club, they had thought this would be a ministry towards dancers at the Little Darlings Strip Club in Flint, MI, many of them began refusing to strip because they saw their value, resulting in the strip club’s eventual closure.
Little did they know it would be a ministry to the sex industry as a whole. They got some streets smarts when they moved out of their condo and rented a small apartment in downtown Flint, MI. They began to love the least of these, the homeless and addicts were now their neighbors. The people they would reach for Christ were those who they did life with. Through this season, they made community connections for resources and shelters.
