Because You Give…One Man Met Jesus Before He Passed Away

December 18, 2023

Because You Give...One Man Met Jesus Before He Passed Away  Into the night hours one Friday a month, Outreach volunteers head out to connect with those whom God loves in hotels, dance clubs, and the streets. Though often dimly lit, the group is recognized and welcomed with a smile. There’s anticipation in the smoky air as everyone greets each other and releases what they’ve been waiting to tell, to ask, to pray. After years of getting to know each other & building trust and friendship, outreach leaders occasionally hear from people who want to stay connected or have a need. This was the case when a call came from a dancer, saying that the club’s doorman was near death from his battle with cancer. The dancer shared that he had unexpectedly made it through the night but asked if anyone from our team could come pray for him now while there was still time. Outreach Coordinator Kristina McKenzie immediately rallied together five team members and headed over to his home where his family had gathered. With their assurance that he would be able to hear them, the team surrounded him and held his hand as they prayed a prayer of forgiveness and salvation. Hours later he passed away. The dancer let our team know how much the visit had meant to her and the family. As believers, we respond to the urgency of the Lord’s prompting. Stopping everything on a Monday afternoon to offer a dying man the opportunity one final time to spend eternity with Jesus is a privilege to be celebrated! It’s because you help make it...

Because You Give…We’re Reaching the Next Generation

December 7, 2023

Because You Give...We're Reaching the Next Generation Dear friends,   Jonathan attended our Harvest Conference this year and was completely blown away.   “I was coming into the conference after the whirlwind of the previous few days feeling pretty sad but Friday night was really eye-opening, and then Saturday was just life-changing. I loved being in that environment,” Jonathan exclaimed.   Since then, Jonathan has become a regular part of our community, partnering with the Harvest House of Prayer in leading a worship set once a week and serving during our monthly community Harvest Night of Worship. Inviting people to become part of what God is doing through Take the City on behalf of the community is what we do.   We’d like to offer you the opportunity to invest in more young men like Jonathan by partnering with Take the City in its ministries. Our goal for the end of the year is $30,000. Yes, I want to help! Changing Lives. Reviving...

Because You Give…Prayer Changed Everything

November 30, 2023

Because You Give...Prayer Changed Everything Dear friends,   Meet Angela, who noticed the Take the City building from across the road one day and was immediately drawn in.   “I walked into the prayer room, and it was like nothing I’d ever experienced before. I left feeling like it was the best day of my life! I went home and prayed with my grandchildren and the next morning, the atmosphere in the whole house was different. The kids were different. I was different,” Angela said.   On that day, Angela had walked right into a group of women from Redeem praying together. Since her first encounter, this dear lady has returned to Redeem and the Harvest House of Prayer many times. It was the Lord who brought her to us and as a result, her life and the lives of her family will never be the same! We love the high-impact events we hold each year and the discipling groups that build long-term relationships. The one-on-one encounters, though, where you look into a person’s eyes and see a light come on? That’s a joy like no other.   Today we’d like to offer you the opportunity to help more women like Angela by partnering with Take the City in its ministries. Our goal for the end of the year is $30,000. Yes, I want to help! Changing Lives. Reviving...

Because You Give…Another Addict Was Set Free

November 21, 2023

Because You Give...Another Addict Was Set Free Dear friends, We love the divine appointments the Lord leads us into with lost and broken people in our city. At an outdoor worship event we were hosting, Jon wandered into the tent to listen to the music. As we struck up a conversation, he confessed that he was an alcoholic, and unburdened his heart about the many years he had spent in addiction– how it had robbed him of his house, his family, and his possessions. He was tired… and ready to make a change.   We shared testimonies of how God had totally changed our own lives through the power of the gospel. Asking how he could have that same experience, we led Jon to Jesus then and there and asked if he wanted to be water baptized. He said yes! With 20 other believers as witnesses, we gleefully baptized this man who had just been made new and was now radiating with joy and hope! It really is the last line in the famous Starfish Story… “Made a difference to that one.” We’d like to offer you the opportunity to invest in more men like Jon by partnering with Take the City in its ministries. Our goal for the end of the year is $30,000 Yes, I want to help! Changing Lives. Reviving...

Because You Give…One Woman’s Life Has Been Changed Forever



Because You Give...One Woman's Life Has Been Changed Forever Dear friends, Jennesee Dean is now in the Army. That’s a big deal because it had been her dream since participating in JROTC in the 9th grade. That dream, while not crushed, succumbed to life’s pressures and choices which left Jennesee facing probation and needing to complete community service hours. Enter Take the City. Faithfully serving at least once a week through the Redeem Boutique, she not only successfully completed the requirement, but her fines were rescinded and she was released from probation six months early! Sitting in Harvest Coffee one day with Redeem’s coordinator, Cindy Gardner sharing the tasks she still had ahead of her, Jennesee was approached by a frequent HC customer and friend of TTC. He offered to help her accomplish her list, including obtaining a copy of her Social Security card. The customer also invited her to join in on an outreach led by college students who were handing out food & clothes in Auburn. “It was the first time I’d ever done anything like that,” Jennesee said. “Now my relationship with God has become stronger and I pray more.” To Take the City, that’s a big deal. We’re thankful to have a part in changing women’s lives through Redeem. We’d like to offer you the opportunity to help transform lives by partnering with Take the City in its ministries. Our goal for the end-of-the-year is $30,000. Yes, I want to help! Changing Lives. Reviving...
