On Saturday, May 22nd, 13 churches from the local body of Christ came together to take the city for Jesus and share the Gospel all across our area.
Five teams took to the streets, while one team stayed back to pray for the others. One young man made the decision to follow Jesus, 90 people were prayed for, and many more people were touched with the love of Jesus.
Of the people prayed for, God divinely intervened in the life of a young lady. One of our teams met her near the Elizabeth Canty apartments. They introduced themselves and asked her if they could pray for her. She said yes, and as our team prayed, something shifted for her. When the team finished praying, the woman admitted that she had a knife in her possession. She was about to use it, but since she received prayer, she decided against it.
We serve such an amazing God! He desires to use us as His hands, feet, and mouth to pour out His love to others.
We dream of dozens of teams spreading across our region each month sharing the Gospel and ministering to people. Our friends and neighbors desperately need to be touched by the love of God, and we are just the ones to do it! We long for the undeniable presence of God to be felt in every neighborhood across our city. Come and join us next month June 17 as we witness the power of the Gospel everywhere we go.

My experience with the Take the City crew was like coming into a family. Our team was welcomed in with open arms with like-hearted believers who love Jesus and have laid down their lives to serve the broken of the city! It was an honor to come alongside them, be welcomed into their homes, share meals, and experience the transformational work that God is doing in and through them to see His Kingdom come.
