REACH ATLANTA

October 30, 2019

Conyers Reach training We had an incredible time in Conyers!!!  There were ten churches represented from five denominations; it was a powerful time with the Body of Christ.  Many were activated in sharing their faith, proclaiming the Gospel, and hearing God’s voice.  We breaked for lunch and then had a quick outreach to put the training into practice. We sent out 8 groups and in less than 2 hours over 40 people received prayer. So many people were impacted by simply going out and doing what they heard: testimony after testimony of everyday believers realizing how easy it actually is to love the one in front of you!!   One person in particular received significant personal breakthrough in their own life as they sat with their outreach team for lunch.  Sometimes we need to receive a deeper revelation of the Father’s Love before we can love the way He loves.  From this training we have launched Reach Groups that will continue to reach Conyers.  We are also planning a follow up meeting for all of the leaders involved with the training to discuss ways to reach Conyers together.   Host a Reach Training The vision of this campaign is to launch hundreds of “Reach Groups” around the cityof Atlanta. We want to see these groups impact communities all over the metro area,resulting in growing local churches! Our team wants to serve local churches all over Atlanta. We have 18opportunities over the next 2 years for churches to host their own Reach Atlantatraining. Each training will gather local churches together to learn how to better reachtheir communities with the gospel. If you...

Community Outreach – Chattahoochee Valley

June 14, 2019

During our May Community Outreach Day, a team of 8-10 people went to the Elizabeth Canty Apartments to share the Gospel. The team split up into groups of two or three. A couple teams went around to different apartments while the others set up a table to pass out 200 slices of pizza! While they were there, one of the leaders, Tre Rager, and a friend encountered a man, who was known as the father of the neighborhood. Tre and his friend prayed that God would increase the man’s wisdom as a father and allow him to minister to more and more people in his neighborhood. A little while later, they encountered a few teenagers. Tre received a word of knowledge that one of the teenager’s parents had been praying for her to have a stronger faith in God. Tre shared this with her and her eyes grew wide. She couldn’t believe that God could show up in this way! She listened intently, wanting to know everything God had to say to her. Tre and his friend shared about Jesus and asked if they could pray for her. As they prayed over the girl, her eyes welled up with tears. God really spoke to her and ministered to her heart. Sometimes all we need to do is stop for the one, and God will do the...

Would your Church like to become a Lifehouse Ministry Partner?



Thanks to Pastor Chuck Hasty and Grace Presbyterian Church for becoming our first Lifehouse Ministry Partners at our Bradley Circle Lifehouse. What a blessing and encouragement they are to Andrew and Ellen and their community ministry. They donate monthly to fund the cookouts and community outreach, work diligently in the community garden, and lead the Fall and Spring home Bible studies and discipleship. We are praying for God to call out three additional Lifehouse Ministry Partners this summer. We currently have two completed Lifehouses that stand in need of a Church like yours to step into these ministry opportunities to plant and plow in God’s kingdom in East Highlands on 26th St and in Bibb City on Young Ave.   Our third ministry opportunity is a house in South Columbus on Garden Dr. off Cusseta Rd. This house is waiting for revitalization and repairs to make ready for an urban missionary family to become a neighbor and share the light and love of Jesus through prayer, encouragement, cookouts, community outreach, and home Bible studies.  Your Church family can invest in remodeling the kitchen and bathroom, replacing doors and windows, and installing an HVAC system. Please contact me, Louis Chalmers at louis@take-the-city.com  or Andrew Chalmers at andrew@take-the-city.com to learn more about how your Church family can become a LifeHouse Ministry Partner with Take the...

I have been serving in some way with Take the city since October 2013. I spent a lot of time on the prayer team in the beginning and encountered God’s heart for the city in a life changing way. When the teams came back and shared testimonies, it was always fun to see that our prayers coincided with some of their testimonies in special ways. More recently I have had the privilege of leading a team to a nursing home where I used to be an employee. I used to pray over the facility every day, and it was such a miracle to see an old friend who lives there give his life to Jesus on one of our outreaches a year later. God sure has a way of answering prayers. And Take the City is an answer to so many prayers that have gone up here.
