Following the Footsteps: Walking Where Jesus Walked



After two years of working on this film project, we are excited to announce the release of our upcoming film: Following the Footsteps! This non-profit feature film documentary is a gospel-centered project that follows a small group of pilgrims who walk together in the historic footsteps of Jesus. “Following the Footsteps” beautifully captures the Good News, as Jesus lived it out, and explores the impact that the Gospel still has on people today. We want as many people as possible to experience the tangible life of Jesus, to know Him personally, and to truly walk where He walked. We are excited to say that premiere screenings of the film are scheduled in four continents, eight countries, and nearly 70 locations. We are hoping for 100 screenings of the film by Palm Sunday weekend. GET MORE INFO ABOUT THE FILM ABOUT FOLLOWING THE FOOTSTEPS Bob and Pam Rognlien lived in the Old City of Jerusalem in 1989-90 where Bob was conducting post-graduate studies in New Testament archaeology and sociology at the Ecole Biblique et Archeologique. Watching tourists come and go past their front door everyday made them realize a typical Holy Land tour misses much of the actual history and culture that illuminates the Way of Jesus. For that reason Bob began to design a unique kind of experience that would go off the beaten track to focus on the most imporant and authentic sites to help people encounter the real Jesus more powerfully.  For over thirty years now we have been leading this historically-informed, spiritually-focused pilgrimage based on the life of Jesus and have seen it literally change many hundreds of lives, as...

The History of Labor Day

August 29, 2022

The History of Labor Day Observed the first Monday in September, Labor Day became a national holiday on June 28, 1894, when President Grover Cleveland signed a law that recognizes the many contributions workers have made to America’s strength, prosperity, and well-being. Before it was a federal holiday, Labor Day was recognized by individual states starting in the 1880s. Who first proposed the holiday is not entirely clear. Some records show that in 1882, Peter J. McGuire, general secretary of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and a co-founder of the American Federation of Labor, suggested setting aside a day for a “general holiday for the laboring classes” to honor those “who from rude nature have delved and carved all the grandeur we behold.” However, recent research supports that it was Matthew Maguire who proposed the holiday in 1882 while serving as secretary of the Central Labor Union in New York. Both Maguire and McGuire attended the country’s first Labor Day parade in New York City that same year. Still celebrated today with parades, picnics and parties, the festivities remain very similar to those outlined in the first proposal for the holiday. American labor raised the nation’s standard of living and brought us closer to the realization of our ideals. It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pays tribute on Labor Day to those who contribute so much to the nation’s strength, freedom, and leadership – the American worker. We invite you to take a moment and remember all those who have contributed to our nation’s strength, prosperity and well-being as we go into celebrating this year’s 2022 Labor...

I have been serving in some way with Take the city since October 2013. I spent a lot of time on the prayer team in the beginning and encountered God’s heart for the city in a life changing way. When the teams came back and shared testimonies, it was always fun to see that our prayers coincided with some of their testimonies in special ways. More recently I have had the privilege of leading a team to a nursing home where I used to be an employee. I used to pray over the facility every day, and it was such a miracle to see an old friend who lives there give his life to Jesus on one of our outreaches a year later. God sure has a way of answering prayers. And Take the City is an answer to so many prayers that have gone up here.
