Many adult film stars remain in the porn industry because Satan has convinced them they’re unworthy of love or redemption, adult entertainment star-turned-XXXChurch Pastor Brittni De La Mora says. 

Previously known by her stage name Jenna Presley, De La Mora was once a rising star in the adult film industry, raking in hundreds of thousands of dollars at the height of her career. She performed in hundreds of films, was named one of Maxim magazine’s top 12 female performers in porn, and placed second in Jenna Jameson’s “American Sex Star” on Playboy TV.

But despite her success, she was miserable.

“I wanted out of the porn industry after a year but I stayed for seven years because I believed the lie Satan constantly told me: That I was too far gone for redemption, that nobody would hire me, that I made my bed and I had to lie in it,” De La Mora told The Christian Post. “I was addicted to drugs and felt hopeless. There are so many lies that Satan places in the lives of the performers that it does make it hard to leave. I’ve been there, so I get it.”

It was during an adult film convention that De La Mora met a woman named Rachel, a member of XXXChurch, a ministry dedicated to helping people leave the porn industry and overcome addictions to pornography. Rachel shared the Gospel with De La Mora, sparking in her a curiosity to know more about Jesus.

“I emailed Craig because I wanted to connect with this woman who told me Jesus loves me,” the 31-year-old recalled.

Despite embracing Christianity, De La Mora found it difficult to leave the porn industry. It wasn’t until she read Revelation 2:20-23, a passage about the sin of sexual immorality and idolatry, that she was able to leave her former lifestyle and lucrative career behind.

“XXXChurch played a huge role in my conversion; they showed me that Jesus truly loved me and instilled in me a sense of worth,” she shared. “It’s an example of God being in every detail of your life.”

Now, De La Mora and her husband, Pastor Richard De La Mora, are preparing to take over XXXChurch as Gross focuses on his latest mission: to sell and promote marijuana for Christians through a new venture called Christian Cannabis.

“Through prayer earlier this year, I heard the Lord say, ‘Give XXXChurch to Brittni and Rich De La Mora to lead,’” Gross said in a statement, adding: “What God has done in her life in the last seven years is nothing short of a beautiful miracle. She knows the Bible inside and out and is an incredible depiction of redemption. It doesn’t surprise me in the least that God is calling her here.”
