Because You Give...Another Addict Was Set Free

Dear friends,

We love the divine appointments the Lord leads us into with lost and broken people in our city. At an outdoor worship event we were hosting, Jon wandered into the tent to listen to the music. As we struck up a conversation, he confessed that he was an alcoholic, and unburdened his heart about the many years he had spent in addiction– how it had robbed him of his house, his family, and his possessions. He was tired… and ready to make a change.

We shared testimonies of how God had totally changed our own lives through the power of the gospel. Asking how he could have that same experience, we led Jon to Jesus then and there and asked if he wanted to be water baptized. He said yes! With 20 other believers as witnesses, we gleefully baptized this man who had just been made new and was now radiating with joy and hope!

It really is the last line in the famous Starfish Story… “Made a difference to that one.”
We’d like to offer you the opportunity to invest in more men like Jon by partnering with Take the City in its ministries. Our goal for the end of the year is $30,000

Changing Lives. Reviving Communities.


My first encounter with Take the City was going to Wilson Apartments in Columbus GA. We were met by a man from that neighborhood who prayed with us before we began the outreach. We set up an area for the kids to play and others went door to door witnessing and praying for people. It truly was a humbling experience. Another time I got to pray at an abortion clinic which was another humbling experience. The worship services the night before are always dynamic and spirit led. However I will conclude with the best part for me was being an eight week participant of Take the City boot camp. All of the leaders were simply AWESOME and I learned so much during those eight weeks. I thank God for all these wonderful opportunities!
