Ep. 49: Interview with Annie Lobert, Founder of Hookers for Jesus

Annie Lobert is a survivor of more than a decade of sex trafficking. She worked as an exotic dancer and a high-class escort and was prostituted in Hawaii, Minneapolis, and Las Vegas. Annie is an internationally recognized expert and advocate to men and women in the commercial sex industry from her personal experience. She is also a survivor of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), domestic violence, sexual abuse, cancer, drug addiction, abortions, miscarriages, pornography, anorexia, and bulimia. In 2003, after a serious drug overdose and an epiphany with God, Annie began her personal journey of healing and recovery to emotional, physical, and spiritual wholeness.

Annie’s mission was to go back and reach the ladies she had left behind who were working in Las Vegas as prostituted women/sex trafficking victims. What started as a pioneering, grassroots outreach soon became a non-profit and in 2005, Hookers for Jesus, was birthed. It was through her endless efforts to rescue women and give them hope for their futures that Destiny House was officially founded. Destiny House is a safe place for women to live while healing from the serious trauma of being sex trafficked.

Annie has been featured on many national and international broadcasts: The Dr Oz Show, Dr. Drew Life Changers, Fox News Network, MSNBC, The Today Show, The Blaze, The Alan Colmes Show, Nancy Grace, Nightline, 20/20, Joy Behar, The Tara Banks Show, Joyce Meyer’s Enjoying Everyday Life, Patricia King Live, Life Today, Help Line TV, the 700 Club, the Jim Bakker Show, TBN’s Praise the Lord, I Am Second Flim and many more.

Governmental organizations, judicial offices, police force trainings, and educational systems, in addition to community groups and churches are effectively utilizing Annie’s inside view and background to assist in educating the public and stirring them to action regarding prostitution and sex trafficking.

Annie wrote a book called Fallen published on 17, 2015. It is a personal real-life story of sex trafficking in Las Vegas and how the sex industry almost ended her life, but was instead used to propel her into full time ministry.

When Annie is taking time off of her busy schedule, she spends time with her husband, Oz Fox as he tours with his rock band. Oz Fox is a founding member and current guitarist and vocalist for the heavy metal band Stryper.
