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 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!
