Organizational Statement of Faith


Journey Out (formerly The Mary Magdalene Project) was created by a grant from the Presbyterian Women of America (PWA) in June 1980 at the prompting of West Hollywood Presbyterian Reverend Ross Greek. The Sunset Boulevard location put him in contact with prostituted women working the streets right outside his church.
