United in Prayer – Chattahoochee Valley

May 17, 2019

What is United in Prayer? United in Prayer is an initiative of Take the City which unifies local believers for worship and intercession to prepare the way for lives to be transformed by the love and power of Jesus. What does the Church need today? “What the Church needs to-day is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use — men of prayer, men mighty in prayer.

We’re doing a Christmas Toy Drive!!!

December 5, 2017

Can you believe it? It’s the end of 2017 already and Christmas is just around the corner. This month we are partnering with “Zelmo’s Zip In Gas Station” to receive Toys for children and families in need. Last year, one of our team members was able to truly bless a family in need. Come to find out this family wasn’t planning on getting their children anything for Christmas due to lack of finances. Then surprisingly they both received a bonus from their jobs. They ended up buying presents and storing them in their car overnight. They woke up the next day to find out their car had been broken into and the presents had been stolen. The team was so compelled they went to the store to buy a kart full of presents for this family. While at the store, a women came up to the team and said God told her to buy everything in their kart. The whole team was ecstatic at how God showed up at the store. After the team wrapped all the gifts, they showed up at the families house to surprise them. The parents cried as the kids unwrapped their gifts. The whole family was so blessed by what God did. The impact was powerful that even today our ministry is in contact with them. Every year we get the wonderful opportunity to surprise and bless families all across the Chattahoochee Valley Area. We want to invite you to come be apart of what God is doing. Below are few ways you can help. How can you help? 1. Donate a Toy –...

The Pressure is Off: Just Be You and Let Jesus Do the Rest

September 12, 2017

I recently went with Take the City to Madison, Indiana to put on an evangelism training conference. We have been able to travel to several cities over the past year, and God has shown up powerfully as we’ve seen the churches and communities begin to unite and go out to share the love of God.   Just as He had done on every other trip we have been on with Take the City, my expectations were high that Jesus would show up. This time, however, I felt pressure to make a difference for Jesus. We had spent the weekend equipping the community for outreach. I thought to myself, “Would my words hold the same weight if I didn’t produce what I preached?” Jesus says in John 15:8,  “When you bear much fruit, you prove you are my disciples…” I took a moment to honestly pray before we headed out to the streets, “I really feel the pressure to bear some fruit right now, Jesus, to perform the works that prove that I am your disciple. I pray that good things would happen today, that someone’s life might be impacted for the better because I stepped out in faith.”   I heard the whisper of the Holy Spirit, “Let me take that pressure off of you. You don’t have to do anything. Let me fill you with my love.”   The true meaning of John 15 means the pressure is off. It means that as we abide in God’s love, we naturally produce good works. Our fruit is a byproduct of our time spent with Jesus, letting him be the Gardener and...

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.
