Project 41 seeks to rescue, value, and transform women through the power of Christ, who have been victims of sex trafficking or have been exploited by the sex industry. Birthed from a simple awareness event called "The White As Snow Gala" in 2014, Project 41 was started by a small group of women who wanted to bring change to our city and reach those enslaved by the sex industry.
It's our mission to abolish slavery in our state through a focused pursuit of "the one" as outlined in Luke 15: 1-7. We believe that every human being has a destiny and purpose inside them and that true revival begins with the restoration of those who are the most broken in our cities, even if it's just one.
Luke 15:1-7 says:
" Tax collectors and other notorious sinners often came to listen to Jesus teach. This made the Pharisees and teachers of religious law complain that he was associating with such sinful people—even eating with them! So Jesus told them this story: “If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them gets lost, what will he do? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine others in the wilderness and go to search for the one that is lost until he finds it? And when he has found it, he will joyfully carry it home on his shoulders. When he arrives, he will call together his friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.’ In the same way, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away!"
Jesus says in this passage that the good shepherd will leave the ninety-nine sheep to go after THE ONE sheep that is lost. We believe that even just ONE person, ONE soul, matters to God and that ONE transformation can effect an entire generation around it. Since, we are made in the image of Christ and it is our goal to be like him, we are also chasing after the one lost sheep.
The desire of Project 41 is to love women the way Jesus would, teaching them that they are enough, showing them that they have been created by God for a beautiful purpose and walking them to a healthy life both physically and spiritually.
Through outreach, friendship, and biblical community we want to lead women to full restoration in Christ, even if it's one soul at a time.
