Big Announcement: Major Change Coming

July 27, 2017

This past weekend I made a big announcement at The Door about some major changes that are coming up. The following is an overview of what I shared during that service. I wanted to let everyone know as clearly and as effectively as possible about some of the changes that are taking place. Over the past two years our ministry, Take the City, has had the incredible privilege of partnering with Teen Challenge in the use of their building off Hurst Drive here in Columbus, GA. We were informed this summer that because of some big changes within their ministry and because of growth they now need to assume full use of their building. They have given us until September 1st of this year to use the building for our regular ministry activities like Take the City Weekends and The Door Sunday night services. First off, I just want to say how thankful we are to Teen Challenge for all of their support! The use of their building has been a blessing for a long list of reasons. We have thoroughly enjoyed being able to be there and totally understand their need to use the whole building. Our plan during our final The Door service at Hurst Drive is to take up a special love offering to bless them and their ministry. God is doing amazing things there! Secondly, I want to share a little bit about how this transition will affect our ministry and the various things that we do each month. Starting in September we will no longer host our Take the City worship, prayer and outreach events at...

I am beyond excited to announce to you that we are hosting our 2nd ever Take the City Conference coming up this September 21-23rd here in Columbus, GA. The mission of our ministry is to see the body of Christ unified and mobilized to see cities revitalized. We are passionate about seeing christians of all ages, races and creeds equipped to reach their neighborhoods, workplaces and cities with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This year at the Take the City Conference our singular focus is that we would all become better equipped to bring the transforming power of God’s Kingdom into our schools, neighborhoods, workplaces and the cities we live in. We believe that if you come to the Take the City Conference that you will never be the same! What you can expect from the TTC Conference: The weekend is going to be filled with incredible times of worship, clear and relevant teachings and powerful encounters with God’s presence. You will not only receive information but will also have an opportunity throughout the weekend to put into practice what you have heard. One of our featured speakers is author and evangelist, Chris Overstreet. He is the Outreach Pastor at Bethel Church in Redding, CA. Chris is the author of the book, A Practical Guide to Evangelism Supernaturally and is featured in the christian documentary film, Finger of God.

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). May God continue to give us the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him as we press on towards the high calling in...

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.
