Tennessee Night Club Partners with Christian Church for Worship Services
The owner of a night club in Knoxville, Tennessee, has partnered with a local pastor to open the venue's doors for worship services once a month in an effort to give attendees the opportunity to hear the Gospel in a casual environment.
Studio X Nightclub and the congregation from Word of Life Ministries recently launched the church services after nearly a year of thoughtful planning, organizers said.
"My mother had the idea of doing a Sunday service in a club atmosphere and I thought it was kind of wild at first and then I pretty much came up with the conclusion that you can have church practically anywhere," said Boo Jackson, the owner of Studio X, reports NBC affiliate wbir.com....
"In February, another church in New York was hoping to buy a strip club for church services as well however, they failed to raise enough money."
Hmmm. Interesting. I can't imagine why any church would seek out buying a strip club unless the leadership had ulterior motives. Kind of like, "I was only viewing child p**n as a research project so I could witness to abusers."
