New Outreach Team in Phenix City

October 28, 2020

Jeff Struecker came on board as a part of the Local Leaders Coalition in August. However, he has served the community for many years as a pastor and teacher and leads 2 Cities Church. He has a heart to share the Gospel with those around him and to serve those in need. On Saturday October 17, Jeff led a team from Take the City across the river to the Riverview Apartments. He and his team of 7 people connected with SO MANY PEOPLE! Women, children, men, and families. Jeff and his team got to connect with them all. They weren’t totally sure how people would react. Our team maintained social distancing and wore masks but still had a heart to make connections and build community. They had nothing to worry about though, because the neighbors were VERY WELCOMING! They were EXCITED that Jeff and his team came, so much so, that Jeff and his team got to pray for 50 people! A few of the neighbors even let Jeff and his team come into their homes and pray for people inside! Even with social distancing and the wearing of masks, our neighbors across the river at the Riverview Apartments were open to hearing about Jesus and sharing their needs with our team. Jeff and his team are excited to go back next month and continue to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.  If you are interested in joining his team or others, contact...

February 2, 2017

Being a leader can be an enormous challenge and a huge privilege all at once. One of the biggest blessings you have as a leader/ parent/ teacher is getting to watch those you lead grow.

When the hay is removed and new growth appears and the grass from the hills is gathered in, the lambs will provide you with clothing, and the goats with the price of a field. You will have plenty of goats’ milk to feed your family and to nourish your female servants. (Prov 27:23-Prov 27:27 NIV ) A Few Things we can learn: God’s greatest treasure he’s given us in the ministry we work in is not the donors, the assets or the events. The greatest treasure are the people He’s entrusted us with. Think of your team this morning and allow God to show you how they are treasure that He’s entrusted you with. Take a few minutes to pray over them. Prayer is a powerful way to help improve your team! Take an honest assessment of your “flock”. Who’s on your team and how are they really doing? Do you sense any conflict, strife or...

Melissa – YWAM Boston

“Getting to be a part of Take the City was such a blessing both in seeing how God moved in the lives of the people I met as well as how he moved in my heart. I was so encouraged to be surrounded by people willing to passionately pray for their city and the people in it. As we worshipped, people would stop and ask what was going on and we got to talk and pray with them. I felt a greater desire to pray for our nation grow in me as we sang and prayed together.”
