Take the City Testimony – Quadasia

March 7, 2016

In February 2016 we had over 150 people from various churches and organizations all come together to serve our community. Here is a testimony from someone who was at the event.  “This is a blessed organization where all churches and any person can come together as one body in Christ to go out and spread God’s love and the Good News about Jesus throughout Columbus, Georgia.  I first heard of take the city from people just talking about it. Then, one night I saw it on the 11pm news. Then I got invited to it on Facebook. That’s when I knew… I had to go! Just being there you knew the spirit of God was present. Still, I was nervous and uncomfortable because I barely knew anyone and I’ve never evangelized before. But they were all very inviting and warm. There were people from all over the US there. I couldn’t believe people even knew where Columbus was. We worshipped to get our spirits right before we left. I remember the director talking about how the same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwells within us. It’s a hard concept to believe at first… Until God reveals His glory! We were about to depart in our groups when a family brought their deaf and mute son to be healed. People started laying hands on him and he was healed!!!! Before my very eyes! I can’t believe God allowed me to see something so powerful! Afterwards, we went out in our groups and prayed for people and spread love. God lead me to pray for people I never thought I’d encounter....

Vision Night 2015

Since 2013 Take the City has mobilized hundreds of people into neighborhoods where we have seen thousands of lives impacted. In 2013-14 we worked with over 75 different churches and impacted approximately 9,500 lives. We saw 221 people come to salvation in Christ in those two years and fed over 5,800 people at our various outreaches and events. We have hosted kids clubs and bible studies that have impacted children and their families in inner city neighborhoods like Wilson Apartments in Columbus. We also hosted an 8-week intensive training where we had over 50 participants from various churches learn how to lead themselves and others into a lifestyle of evangelism. God has truly done amazing things as we have witnessed the body of Christ coming together to see our cities revitalized!

As we look forward we believe that all of this is truly just the beginning of what God wants to do in our area. Our Vision is to transform our cities by serving in the areas of proclamation, compassion and justice. Imagine hundreds of churches and organizations from across the Chattahoochee Valley area coming together to love, serve and pray for their region. Imagine what could be accomplished if we built greater collaboration among civic, corporate, and church leaders spanning economic and denominational lines. Imagine the impact if we could help establish sustainable efforts unique to each neighborhood that would revitalize entire areas of our community.

Please come join us for a night to celebrate all that God has already done and to also hear about how you can partner with what God is doing through the ministry of Take the City!
