We’re doing a Christmas Toy Drive!!!

December 5, 2017

Can you believe it? It’s the end of 2017 already and Christmas is just around the corner. This month we are partnering with “Zelmo’s Zip In Gas Station” to receive Toys for children and families in need. Last year, one of our team members was able to truly bless a family in need. Come to find out this family wasn’t planning on getting their children anything for Christmas due to lack of finances. Then surprisingly they both received a bonus from their jobs. They ended up buying presents and storing them in their car overnight. They woke up the next day to find out their car had been broken into and the presents had been stolen. The team was so compelled they went to the store to buy a kart full of presents for this family. While at the store, a women came up to the team and said God told her to buy everything in their kart. The whole team was ecstatic at how God showed up at the store. After the team wrapped all the gifts, they showed up at the families house to surprise them. The parents cried as the kids unwrapped their gifts. The whole family was so blessed by what God did. The impact was powerful that even today our ministry is in contact with them. Every year we get the wonderful opportunity to surprise and bless families all across the Chattahoochee Valley Area. We want to invite you to come be apart of what God is doing. Below are few ways you can help. How can you help? 1. Donate a Toy –...

Sponsor A Family. Provide A Turkey This Thanksgiving.   When you think of Thanksgiving, what comes to mind? I’m sure you’ve just been flooded with thoughts and pictures of family gatherings with all your favorite holiday dishes – roasted turkey, sweet potato soufflé, green bean casserole. Can you imagine all the families in our area who may be struggling with a financial crisis? Did you know that 26.7% of Columbus residents live with an income below the poverty line. That’s 3 out of 10 people living in poverty. I wonder how many families in our area will go without a family dinner this Thanksgiving. What would happen if we put our hearts, minds and resources together. Could we see our city forever changed? As the body of Christ, I believe that together we can see our city transformed. We would like to invite each of you to partner with us by sponsoring a family for Thanksgiving. We are looking for 100 families to donate $25 to help us provide 100 turkeys for needy families. If you are interested in donating, click here and fill out the donor information. Don’t forget to comment “Happy Thanksgiving. Be A Part of City Wide Transformation.     On Friday November 17th at 6:30pm will meet atHighland Community for “United in Prayer,” which is an initiative to engage believers to pray and intercede for their city. We believe during this time our prayers will prepare the way for lives to be impacted by the love of Jesus during the outreaches the next day. Click here for more info.

November 2016 News Update

December 5, 2016

Every year during the month of November, Take the City hosts an event called “Thanksgiving Food Drive.”  During this event, we invite the local church and community to link arms to help provide Thanksgiving meals for those in need.  This year our goal was to give away 500 bags of food. Fortunately, with the help many people from different churches and backgrounds coming together, we were able to feed 500 families in need. Many people helped by donating canned goods, giving financially and volunteering their time to help pack and give away the food. Why do we do this? A lot of the communities that we go into are low income communities. Many times we run into families or individuals who are facing a financial crisis. While our heart beat is to see the lost saved, the sick healed and lives restored, we love to create and build long lasting relationships. We’ve realized that meeting peoples needs is one of the best ways to show love.  If it’s clothes, we clothe them. If it’s prayer, we pray for them. If it’s food, we feed them.On the day of the event, 9 teams were sent out all across our city to neighborhoods, trailer parks and apartments to give away FREE food for Thanksgiving.  Each team was equipped with +50 bags of assorted thanksgiving goods. The teams would give away the bags to anyone that wanted one. They would also take time to pray and to share God’s love with them. Featured Testimony. “After praying with a father and his family, the father wanted to pray a blessing over us. As he did, he thanked God for brining us to his home. Taking his two bags of...

Powerful Testimony – Take the City

September 30, 2016

On a monthly basis, Take the City gathers with local churches to train, equip, and activate people to share the love of God with their local community.  Averaging 75 to 100 people per event, these gatherings consist of people from all across Columbus and Phenix City area.  Sometimes 20 to 25 different churches from the area gather together in unity to support this mission. After a time of teaching and training, the people are sent out in groups to various locations. Each group is sent out to flood neighborhoods, trailer parks, strip malls, housing authorities, and high risk areas to share the love of God. This past Take the City, my outreach team had a grill out in the historic district. Most of our team went out into the neighborhood to invite people to get a free hot dog, while Quadasi and I stayed back to prep the food.  Soon enough a young homeless man came walking up. He had such a big smile on his face. I greeted him with a smile and told him “man, Jesus loves you so much!” He seemed shocked at first, yet he looked back at me with that big smile, as if what I said had truly touched his heart.  I asked him for his name, and he said, “My name is Demetrius.” After praying for him, Quadasi and I fed him. Demetrius hung out with us for the rest of our time on outreach.   At the end of the outreach, Demetrius asked me if he could come to church with me. We exchanged numbers, and I told him I would...

Bikers Come to Jesus

July 7, 2016

This past month after my team had just hit the streets we stumbled upon a liquor store. Moments after arriving, we saw a group of bikers go into the store. As they went in, we had just finished talking and sharing God’s love with someone. We were about to leave, but we all felt we should stay. So we hung around for a bit. As soon as the bikers came out of the liquor store, I complimented on how nice their bikes looked. After introducing myself, I asked the group if they would care if I prayed a prayer of protection over them – in which I had no intention of them actually saying yes- then one of them spoke up and said “sure.” So I invited them to get in a big circle and we would prayed over them. As I began to pray, I felt the Lord moving. One of the men came in agreement with my prayers saying “yes and amen.” Immediately I felt God nudging to give an alter call. So I did. As I prayed with the group each man lifted their voice asking Jesus to come into their lives and professing Jesus Christ as Lord. The moment was so amazing. And It seemed as if God’s grace, truth and love was covering them. Afterwards we all shook hands and went our separate ways. As we left we noticed a local “freemasonry ”badge on their jacket. Personally, we may not know much about these men, where they come from, or what exactly they believe, but we do know is God is pursuing each of them with...

TTC led me out of darkness and into the love I’ve longed for my entire life, the love of JESUS.  They’ve taught me to love like Jesus by walking out my created purpose.  My Spirit has been healed, I am whole, because of their obedience to do God’s will.  They have introduced me to and welcomed me into a powerful tribe of women that love Jesus with their whole heart.  Women that strengthen, teach, support, and encourage one another with the power and authority given by the Holy Spirit.  I am eternally grateful for their ministry and humbled to be called family.
