Episode 5: Crazy Church Ladies!

Gina’s guest has an incredible story to tell! Gwen Adams is an everyday mom and grandma who God called out of the church she was serving to be the church way out on the margins of society. It all started with a simple missional challenge from the Lord to pray. And those prayers have led to a profound movement of crazy church ladies who are having an amazing impact combatting sex trafficking in Alaska.

Mentioned in this Episode:

What happens when ordinary churchgoing women heed the radical call of an extraordinary God? The sex trafficking trade is an ugly, messy, and complicated crisis in desperate need of intervention, but it is easier to stay out of it and pray from a safe distance.

However, the church is not called to be safe. In Crazy Church Ladies, Gwen Adams recounts how she and her group of church ladies became crime-fighting machines to upend the world of trafficking in their city.

Crazy Church Ladies lays out a blueprint for the church to be the church. In a world with so much conversation about the church and social justice, this story shows how the church can live into its primary calling, to make disciples and impact the surrounding culture in ways that no government, law enforcement, or community activism can.
