Local Outreach – Answered Prayer

February 1, 2020

Saturday January 18, we split up into teams and went to different neighborhoods to preach the Gospel and share Christ’s love. Over the past few months, one of our outreach leaders, Dasi, has felt led to take a team and go to her own neighborhood in the Staffordshire subdivision and share the Gospel. When she went this past time, God answered a woman’s prayer. Dasi and a new friend ventured to her neighborhood. After they parked at her house, they prayed and asked the Lord where they should go. They began walking and simultaneously were drawn to a house nearby. Dasi and her friend knocked on the door and what happened next was God and God alone. The woman yelled, “Come in!” To her surprise, Dasi found the door to be unlocked and slowly opened it. They walked down the center hallway and found the woman in the kitchen. The woman had been praying all night and had asked God to give her a sign that He was there and cared about her. Dasi and her friend introduced themselves and explained that they were there to pray for her. The woman grasped Dasi’s friend’s hand and responded through tears, “I know Jesus loves me, because God sent you both here to me today.” The three women sat and exchanged stories. The Lord’s power began to fill the room as they prayed for each other. The women connected and let go; they wept together and rejoiced as the Lord moved in their hearts. The Lord ministered to each woman with specific words of encouragement, and for the lady of the...

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...

Redeem Outreach

November 26, 2019

During one of our outreaches this month we saw many miracles happen within our city. Prior to going out on the streets, we spent a while worshipping and praying. During that time, we asked God to show us what He wanted to do tonight. Everyone in the room heard something in relation to downtown Columbus. We finished praying and split into three teams. We drove downtown and began walking around, sharing the love of Jesus everywhere we went. Among our teams, we were able to minister to people in many different walks of life: atheist, homosexuality, and military families. The love of Christ knows no borders and is available for everyone. We saw many peoples’ hearts opened by the love of Jesus in us, and their hearts being delivered from bondage. We know the call on our lives is to love God and be radically obedient to His leading. We are seeing our team come alive as we go to the lost and experience what they were created for: being His hands and His feet.  Be Praying! We are still following up with those we met and are believing for great breakthrough!  Email Jessica Cronin at jessica@take-the-city.com to get...

Young teens answer the call to salvation

May 20, 2016

Here’s a short testimony about Melissa Chatman and her youth group’s experience at Revival on the River. “We travelled from Albany to Columbus, which took us about an hour drive. Upon arriving we ate our free Chick-fil-a meals. After eating we told the kids they could roam around but not to leave past the gates. Well, of course being young, they ended up going past the gates.  When I found them, they were way down the river walking on the path. And yes, they were in trouble.  But we decided to give them a second chance (Isn’t that what we are supposed to do?).   Anyways they sat on the brick wall down toward the front of the amphitheater. In my mind I was thinking these kids aren’t paying any attention at all. They think it’s social time.   When it came time for the invitation, even then they didn’t seem to be paying attention.  But something happened.  All of a sudden I looked and I saw two of our boys down front.  Then another followed. We all were ecstatic and began praising Jesus.  That night, several gave their hearts to Jesus and one of our boys was baptized. We’ve never seen them get so excited for Jesus. It truly goes to show that the Holy Spirit can work in someone’s life even when they seem like they’re not paying attention.   This whole experience has changed our lives forever! We will never be the same.  Thank you for all the hard work and dedication you guys put into this...

TTC led me out of darkness and into the love I’ve longed for my entire life, the love of JESUS.  They’ve taught me to love like Jesus by walking out my created purpose.  My Spirit has been healed, I am whole, because of their obedience to do God’s will.  They have introduced me to and welcomed me into a powerful tribe of women that love Jesus with their whole heart.  Women that strengthen, teach, support, and encourage one another with the power and authority given by the Holy Spirit.  I am eternally grateful for their ministry and humbled to be called family.
