  • Dear Fellow Warrior for Christ,

    Thank you for prayerfully considering an investment of your time and resources to be trained for this unique type of ministry. Today the sex industry is a 63 billion dollar worldwide business & we live in a sex-saturated society. It is almost impossible to look anywhere without seeing the effects of it. It is the largest mission field in the world, desperate for laborers and it’s time for the Church to raise up a standard to reach & rescue those affected by it. I am very excited about your desire to do something & want you to know that you are an answer to prayer.

    When God birthed this ministry through me, He laid upon my heart, not only a burden to reach & rescue those in it & affected by it, but also to train up the body of Christ to make an impact on this, the largest & fastest growing industry in the world. This training is an accumulation of experience that has been developed from the LORD’s leading, as well as observations, mistakes & lessons learned over the past 6 years.

    It is my desire & passion to see an army of end time warriors raised up, properly equipped & united in purpose, to push back the forces of darkness & take back what the enemy has stolen through the sex industry. There are countless souls that have been lured into captivity & there is a need now more than ever to do something about it.

    Jesus said that He came to set the captives free & deliver the prisoners. He called us to be His hands & feet. He commissioned us to make disciples & promised us that when we lived committed lives trusting & obeying His Word that we would do even greater things. Key to being these warriors is understanding the power & dominion that Christ has given us through the Holy Spirit in us and who we are in Christ.

    This type of ministry is not for the weak of heart & you need to know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you are called to it. You also need to be adequately trained and equipped for the task. It is no coincidence that you are reading this & I believe that you have been chosen & appointed by God Almighty for such a time as this.

    Please understand that this training is not a black & white command on how to do this type of ministry. It’s our recommendations & suggestions. We encourage you to seek the LORD as to what your ministry will look like & the functions of it. We are not all called to be the same organ of the body, but we are to make up different body parts that fit together as whole.

    We at Beauty From Ashes Ministries are committed to seeing you become everything that God purposed you to be & will help you in any way we can. It is our prayer that you receive everything God desires for you through this unique and specialized training.

    In His passionate love & service,

    Julie Shematz CEO & Founder, Beauty From Ashes

  • up. Schedules of service times, etc. are also good items to include. We will provide the BFA tri-fold color outreach brochure with Julie’s testimony and the plan of salvation and our toll free help line. The number of club(s) and workers determines the number of gifts. For a typical training session, we assemble 50-100 gifts. The local host can call around to the closest strip clubs to find out how many girls are working on a typical night, keeping in mind they normally exaggerate the numbers. Usually 50 – 100 gifts will cover 2- 4 clubs depending on the size of the club. Gift items should also be made for the men employees.

    NOTE: We are flexible and willing to adjust training content, size, schedule, costs, etc. to accommodate trainee’s needs and available resources, as we are able.
