Our ministry is seeing incredible things happen in the East Highland Neighborhood of Columbus, Georgia. We have launched a community-driven food drive that is a part of our Project Lifehouse initiative’s efforts in the community. This is just one example of what God is doing in our city!
The Bedsole Family moved from Oregon to come and serve in our city and to live in one of our missionary homes. They are excited to help partner with the neighbors in this community to help encourage and empower those living there to see redemption and restoration of the area. It’s amazing how we’re seeing dignity restored to the area as the community is coming together and serving!
Take the City is excited to be partnering with churches and businesses from all over the Chattahoochee Valley area to work towards transforming 10 neighborhoods in our area. The goal of “Project LifeHouse” is to fix up homes in impoverished areas and then place families and individuals in those areas to bring hope and transformation. We plan to do this through consistent service projects, outreaches, and by sharing the love of Christ while living there.

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!
