W.A.R. Weekend – Redeem – Power & Transformation

January 31, 2020

This past weekend, our Redeem ministry team rented out a local motel room and had constant prayer, worship, and outreach. Friday January 24th started out like any other day. Jessica Cronin along with a few volunteers ran around taking care of last minute items to prepare for the weekend. The team met up at the hotel and began their weekend with worship and prayer. Even from the first note, the atmosphere began to shift. Music filled the air, and guests staying in the motel were drawn to Jesus. In the first night alone, the Redeem team were able to help a woman and her two children get off the streets, and see 4 people give their lives to Christ. The next day, the team split up into groups of two to three people and walked around the area. Their heart in going out was to minister and share the love of Jesus. In route, Jonathan Cronin and a friend of his met a man named Kevin and his wife Alana. Kevin had been bound to a wheelchair all his life. This inspired the guys to pray for him, believing that Jesus would heal his legs and that he would be able to stand up and leave his wheelchair. Laying their hands on the man’s shoulders, Jonathan and his friend began to pray. As they did, the power of Jesus showed up in great measure. The man began to feel strength in his legs. Encouraged, the man tried to stand up. He did!!! He even began to walk forward!!! His wife wanted to cry but she was too elated to...

May 18, 2016

Once per year Take the City hosts a community event called “Revival on the River.” With the overall focus of celebrating unity within the local churches and sharing the love of Jesus with the surrounding communities, Take the City has partnered with Chick-fil-a and many other organizations to make this event possible. Below is a testimony from Sydney Brasseaux of what God did in her life at Revival on the River. “Hey Andrew, my name is Sydney Brasseaux and I’m from Rivertown Church. Prior to me coming to Unity Night, I didn’t really believe in God or live my life like a Christian. I’ve been baptized twice before. The first time I felt pressured to do it. And the second time I did it just because I wanted to make sure I would go to heaven. I thought I was doing it for the right reason, but even afterwards nothing changed.     That night at Revival on the River, something was different. I can’t fully describe what happened to me, but I know I felt something different. When you gave the invitation to come up to the front for prayer, I met a lady at the front of the stage. I started sharing with her about how I’ve been dealing with a lot of depression.  As If she knew exactly what I was going through, she started asking me if I dealt with suicidal thoughts, self harm or drug abuse. Immediately, I felt the Holy Spirit move on me.   As we prayed, God began to heal my past hurts and memories. I saw a light and I...

“Getting to be a part of Take the City was such a blessing both in seeing how God moved in the lives of the people I met as well as how he moved in my heart. I was so encouraged to be surrounded by people willing to passionately pray for their city and the people in it. As we worshipped, people would stop and ask what was going on and we got to talk and pray with them. I felt a greater desire to pray for our nation grow in me as we sang and prayed together.”
