LOS ANGELES — Stripper-turned-Christian evangelist Heather Veitch has announced that 24-year-old porn star Sophia Lynn has retired from adult entertainment and accepted a secretarial position at a South Dakota Church.

The performer's transition was enabled by Pastor Keith Loy of Celebrate Community Church in Sioux Falls, whose church is providing Lynn with a home and a college scholarship in addition to the secretary's job.

"This is like a dream. I hope I don't have to wake up from this," Lynn said. "I feel like my life has been saved."

According to Veitch, many girls want to leave the business, but find it challenging.

"It takes the kind of commitment we're seeing from Celebrate Community Church, Veitch said. "This is the story of the little church that could."

Celebrates Community Church became involved with Lynn after her appearance on an ABC News report. While Lynn initially declined the church's offer to visit, Veitch flew to South Dakota to educate church members as to the size and scope of America's sex industry and encouraged churchgoers to pray for Lynn and others like her.

They did.

"Three weeks later my phone rang, and it was Sophia," Veitch said. "She told me she was ready to make a real life change and wanted some real help. I called Pastor Loy and told him God held up his end, so now what are we going to do?"

Six hours later, Sophia Lynn was on a plane to a new life in South Dakota.

Vietch, whose ministry JCsGirls.com was profiled in the documentary "The Pussycat Preacher," is calling for more churches to emulate the Celebrate Community Church example.

"I'm calling it 'One Church for One Girl' program," Veitch said.
