Take the City Conference is an event for followers of Jesus Christ from various denominations and backgrounds to come together and discover new ways to impact their city and culture. This event is directed to men and women, teens and young adults who desire to be used by God to impact their city wherever God has placed them! Each person attending this conference will have a chance to hear engaging speakers, encounter God’s presence during life-changing times of worship and meet fellow believers from all walks of life.
This is our first ever Take the City conference and we are so excited to host International speaker and author Robby Dawkins as our Keynote speaker. Robby and his wife Angie have been married for almost 20 years and have 6 boys ranging from 2 -19. Robby is a fifth generation pastor who was born to missionary parents in Japan. He served as a youth pastor for 12 years for churches between 50 to 14,000 members before he and Angie planted a Vineyard church in the downtown area of Aurora, Illinois (Chicago area) 15 years ago. Their church has many gang members, drug addicts, and prostitutes and just simply down and outers as well as a few middle class. Yet God has shown up to powerfully change these people’s lives through this pastor and church. The mayor of Aurora along with it’s chief of police recently bestowed upon Robby and the Vineyard an acknowledgment that he and his Vineyard church have made a significant difference in Aurora’s crime rate reduction. For the 1st time in 66 years Aurora, IL was declared homicide free in 2012.
Robby has a deep passion to equip the Church and he ministers extensively to do so (in the U.S. and in 38 countries) in various Denominational and Nondenominational circles in Power Evangelism. He was most recently featured in the movie documentaries “Furious Love” in 2010 and “Father of Lights” in 2012.

Take the City has had a huge impact on me and my daughter. When God led me from one place, this door was wide opened. I had the great ability to experience more of God and see the signs that follow them that believed. *Mark 16:17-20*
The people I've met have showed soooooo much love to us and I'm grateful for that. Not only do they teach on truth, but they walk in the power of the Holy Spirit and encourage others around them to do so also! God has also allowed me to be a part of a ministry as well. I want to say thank you thank you God first and thank you to Take the City!!
