Occupy Internship Testimony from Nic Chavers!

This summer, we offered an internship program called Occupy for high school and college students. Occupy is a 6-week program that is geared toward helping students grow in their identity and intimacy with God by going deeper in the Word of God, prayer, and evangelism.

The internship offers the opportunity for students to learn the backbones of ministry by working closely with Take the City staff in administration, social media, and videography. The following is a testimony of what God did in one of our interns while in the program.

Testimony from internship:

“I am a sophomore at Columbus State University. I was so excited when I found out that I was accepted into the Occupy Internship. Over the past weeks, I have gained a wealth of knowledge and wisdom about Christ and the authority we have in him through my leaders and our guest speakers.

I have developed an understanding of my identity in Christ and have learned the importance of intimacy with him. Occupy has given me an awesome foundation for doing ministry, and I want to maintain a close walk with Jesus each day here after.


As an Occupy group, it has been great to see the fellowship that we have developed among ourselves. I look forward to seeing myself and the rest of the Occupy Interns develop more in their walk with Christ. May God be glorified as he uses us to advance his kingdom.”-Nic Chavers

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!
