Encounter Outreach

January 28, 2018

What is Encounter Outreach? Take the City is partnering with Every Home for Christ to equip and activate the local believers to see our WHOLE city reached with the GOOD NEWS. We believe it takes ONE ENCOUNTER WITH GOD to shake up and transform a person’s life, to give hope to the hopeless, restoration to the broken and healing to the hurting. How can we respond? We have been given the honor of playing a pivotal role in sharing the Good News with the world, inviting others to experience the saving love of God. When we intentionally interact with the people around us, we see amazing things happen! Come join us for ENCOUNTER OUTREACH. We will have a time of equipping, activating and sending. As well as a time afterwards to dialogue about what God did during the outreach and how we can implement this in our personal lives. This event will be in partnership and hosted with “City Gate Church” in Phenix City, AL. www.facebook.com/citygatehometeam ...

United in Prayer

January 26, 2018

What is United in Prayer? United in Prayer is an initiative of Take the City which unifies local believers for worship and intercession to prepare the way for lives to be transformed by the love and power of Jesus. What does the Church need today? “What the Church needs to-day is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use — men of prayer, men mighty in prayer. The Holy Ghost does not flow through methods, but through men. He does not come on machinery, but on men. He does not anoint plans, but men — men of prayer.” ― E.M. Bounds, Power Through Prayer Will you join us? Join us along with men, woman and families as we gather together with unifed hearts and minds to pray for our city! We will be meeting at City Gate Church. Which is right across the street from the Phenix City post office. Also, the time zone for this event is scheduled in...

Local Company Donates to Project: Lifehouse

January 5, 2018

We are so excited to announce that at the end of 2017 the local company, Barge Waggoner Sumner & Cannon, Inc. made a large donation towards our Project: LifeHouse initiative. Our ministry is so thankful for local businesses who believe that it is important that we make a difference in our city. They made this $2,500 donation to help us finish our very first Project: LifeHouse home which is located in Bradley Circle which is a small part of the city-village area of Columbus, Ga. This month we plan to have completed our very first ministry home and we (The Chalmers Family) will be moving into this neighborhood. Our dream is to move families in who will help to sponsor and adopt communities that are in need of revitalization.  So far we have 4 of these homes that we plan to fix up before the end of this year and move people into these neighborhoods. Our dream is to have 10 of these Project: LifeHouse homes up and running by 2020. We believe that as people incarnate the Gospel of the Kingdom into neighborhoods that have been plighted with crime and poverty that we will see entire neighborhoods transformed. If you would like to get involved by volunteering, making a donation or even want to consider moving into one of these communities please contact us!  Andrew Chalmers Founder and Director, Take the...

Melissa – YWAM Boston

“Getting to be a part of Take the City was such a blessing both in seeing how God moved in the lives of the people I met as well as how he moved in my heart. I was so encouraged to be surrounded by people willing to passionately pray for their city and the people in it. As we worshipped, people would stop and ask what was going on and we got to talk and pray with them. I felt a greater desire to pray for our nation grow in me as we sang and prayed together.”
