HARVEST HOUSE OF PRAYER- A YEAR IN REVIEW

May 26, 2021

HARVEST HOUSE OF PRAYER- A YEAR IN REVIEW Unexpected transition… It was about a year ago that the Lord moved my family and I from Orlando, Florida to Columbus, Georgia to serve at Take the City. Up until that time most of our ministry experience involved serving those recovering from life controlling issues. We never would have anticipated being placed in the leadership positions we are now in, my wife serving as the manager for Harvest Coffee, and myself coordinating the Harvest House of Prayer. Both of these ministries are within the context of the Take the City mission base here in Columbus.  A heart for prayer… Take the City is a very dynamic organization with all sorts of initiatives and projects aimed towards transforming cities with the gospel. At the center of it all, though, there is the prayer room. I have always had a heart for prayer and worship, and have always seen it as essential to any and all kingdom work. Even in my recovery and in the ministry therein I always found myself preaching on the subject of worship and prayer, and it has always been a priority and a core value in my walk with Christ.

East Highland Food Distribution

November 23, 2020

Our ministry is seeing incredible things happen in the East Highland Neighborhood of Columbus, Georgia.

The number of people coming and participating has increased every time! It’s amazing how we’re seeing dignity restored to the area as the community is coming together and serving!

If you would like to get involved with Project Lifehouse, call Louis Chalmers at...

I learned about Take The City through a young lady at our church about 5 years ago and after going on my first outreach, I was HOOKED. I fell in love with the family environment, organic evangelism, and genuine love that I experience here.  The training, connections, and opportunities that I’ve been blessed with here have been nothing short of life-changing!  God bless my TTC family.
