God is Raising up an Army

June 13, 2016

These past few months God has been moving mightily during our meetings and as we’ve reached out to our local community.  It’s been exciting to see how God is raising up a company of Christ followers to share the good news of God’s love and reconciliation with our area. This past month, we were fortunate to have one of our team members, Yvette Turner, donate several boxes full of food to pass out during Take the City. These boxes gave us just enough food to fill a total of 96 bags with each bag able to feed a family of four. As we gathered together, 108 people were present from 17 different churches from a wide variety of denominations. We sent out 10 teams to various neighborhoods, trailer parks and housing authority developments. Each team was equipped with bags of food to pass out to those in need and to pray with those who need prayer. Of the +200 people prayed for, 18 people received physical and spiritual healing and 2 people received Christ as their Lord and Savior. Truly, God is moving amongst us, yet we are just beginning to scratch the surface of how powerful it is when we come together with one mind and one heart as the body of Christ. Our ministries’ hope is to continue operating as a unifying agent here in this area. Our hope is that we might make every effort in keeping the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace for the local church of Columbus Georgia and Phenix City (Eph. 4:3).

News Update – September 2015

September 14, 2015

As I look past over this past month and all the lives have been touched here in the Chattahoochee Valley area not only through Take the City but also by all the other amazing ministries and churches I am really excited. I believe that the Kingdom of God is truly advancing in our area and that God is doing a great thing here through His Church. As more and more churches and organizations are connecting and working together I see that the Church is only getting more strong and effective in reaching our city that desperately needs the HOPE that can only be found in Jesus Christ. One exciting thing I noticed this past outreach event was how diverse the Church is in our area and how much of a blessing the diversity is. I noticed this when one of our outreach teams returned overflowing with joy and excitement because of all they had seen God do. The thing I noticed was that the team was made up of a middle-aged white brother, middle aged black sister, two young Hispanic brothers and a young black brother. I sat and thought about it and realized that they were all from different churches and cultures but they had all been able to come together and agree that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is worth sharing to our city. God is bringing people together from various races and denominations in our city in ways like never before! I wish I had more time each month to simply write down and record the testimonies of all the amazing things we have been seeing!...

My experience with the Take the City crew was like coming into a family.  Our team was welcomed in with open arms with like-hearted believers who love Jesus and have laid down their lives to serve the broken of the city! It was an honor to come alongside them, be welcomed into their homes, share meals, and experience the transformational work that God is doing in and through them to see His Kingdom come.
