419 Tents of Worship & Prayer in One Weekend

November 5, 2019

The weekend of October 17-19, we had the opportunity to participate in Tent America, a grassroots movement of day and night worship, prayer and missions, especially focused on the U.S. For this event, people were invited to set up a tent of worship for 50 hours straight wherever they would like: work places, city parks, churches, college campuses, etc. 419 people stepped up to orchestrate 50 hours of prayer and worship in their areas. October 17-19, hundreds of people across the U.S. joined together in prayer for our nation and our cities to encounter God. Prayers were answered as many people did experience Christ’s love. The following stories are testimonies from our tent at Take the City. Louis and Nancy Chalmers along with a few other people were worshiping the Lord from 4am-8am Saturday morning. Around 5am, a guy walked up to the tent. He met the Chalmers and stayed for a long time. At the very end of the night on Saturday, he showed back up at 10pm. He had felt led to come and help tear down the chairs and help where he could. This was an answer to prayer for our team who had been there all day. We told him so, and he felt SO ENCOURAGED! He wasn’t sure if he should come at all; he didn’t want to be a burden. Not at all! Many hands make light work, and he was an incredible help! Later that afternoon, we sent out a few teams of people out across the Chattahoochee Valley to share the Gospel and pray for people. One of our leaders had...

Local Outreach – A Woman Gets Healed!

May 1, 2019

During our local outreach on April 20, one of our staff prayed with a woman near his home. The woman expressed that she wanted freedom from her addiction and to know Jesus. Steve led her through a prayer of salvation, and she rededicated her life to Christ. Directly afterward, Steve asked her if she had any pain in her body, not realizing she had been leaning on the side of the building the whole time, struggling to stand up. She had had hip replacement and still was in a lot of pain. Steve prayed for her, and God healed her immediately from all the pain! She began to move side to side in disbelief. Then she walked up and down the street and even danced a little! This 72 year old woman who had walked up with a cane said, “I don’t need this anymore!” Praise...

Tampa Testimony by Mariel Villarreal – Great American Cookies Treasure Hunt

March 19, 2018

This month, we held a Take the City conference in Tampa, Florida with the goal of gathering the body of Christ in the city and surrounding areas to receive equipping to do outreach and then to go out into the city to use the tools we learned to evangelize. An anticipation filled the room as we shared testimonies of salvations, healings, and miracles God has done on past outreaches when we simply reached out to those around us with the love and power of the Gospel. What is a Treasure Hunt? Before outreach, my team gathered to prepare for a “Treasure Hunt” , a type of evangelism where we pray and ask God to give us specific clues about where we should go, what we should do, and who we should meet. We would take note of the clues we received during prayer. While those clues would become the treasure map that would lead us to the people we share the Gospel with—our treasures. It’s a fun way to partner with the Holy Spirit and rely on His leading to impact people and situations that are on His heart. Your Clues will Determine Your Treasure Map. As we prayed, someone spoke up and said, “I feel like God wants us to go to the mall food court!” After another moment, I felt like the Lord was showing me a picture of a cookie store at the mall. With two clues for our treasure hunt in hand, we decided—let’s go to the mall and see what Jesus wants to do! Your Treasure Map will Determine Your Destiny. When we arrived...

TAKE THE CITY outreaches have been so special to me. I love being able to see the hand of GOD move in peoples lives as they are healed and families restored. GOD cares about every detail of our lives and he reaches the places that only HE can only heal! Its been an honor to see all the teams go out and share the LOVE that GOD has instilled and filled the teams with, and let it pour out to all the community. Having physical needs met also assures all we encounter, the faithfulness of our Father. So many times I have cried seeing what GOD is doing… Being able to see people brought into the KINGDOM and freedom Spirit, Soul, Mind and Body. Is the greatest treasure in my life. I am grateful for TAKE THE CITY allowing me to have front seat and seeing GOD move in peoples lives!
