Unity Inspires

November 10, 2022

Unity Inspires Elizabeth Canty Apartments  The quiet of the morning in the neighborhood was interrupted by a car creeping its way down the road, leaving the booming echo of the music in its wake. A group of five young teenagers followed its call to admire both the stereo and the car. At the same time, Tre Rager and Ben Whittaker emerge from their vehicle with several others because it’s “Harvest Day” – a Take the City monthly outreach into communities to build relationships and share the gospel. One of the group shares that Take the City’s outreaches started in this same area 10 years earlier with block parties that featured grill outs and bouncy houses.  Today, everyone is focused on a man, gun tucked into his belt, and his daughter who were standing on the sidewalk. They had been in conversations before, so he waved and welcomed the group over. Since their last meeting, the man had gotten married and shared that they were doing more things together as a family than ever before. He was glad to see them today, he said, because they were getting ready to move. Ben and the rest of the TTC group pray a powerful prayer over him before they part ways. The leader within the community, who had been touched by the Lord a few years earlier, has learned how to lead a Bible study for the people to be equipped. “You have vision for your family and now you’re being strong for other families too,” Tre told him, offering to help in any way he could and encouraging him in his prayer...

Local Outreach – Confession

July 28, 2021

Local Outreach - Confession 20 Years of Ministry In my nearly 20 years of serving the Lord in ministry I have been blessed to preach the gospel in different parts of America and even in other countries around the world. I have had personal evangelistic conversations with people I knew well and others I had just met. I have stayed mindful of verses like Mark 16:15 that gives us Jesus’ command to “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.’ Also, in Acts 1:8, Jesus says, “…and you shall be my witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”. We are so loved by God that He chose not only to save us but also to entrust us with His glorious gospel. He allows us to be the ones to share it with all people everywhere. What an amazing love! What a marvelous mission! Confession I do have a confession. Over the years I have made the mistake of remembering the nations but missing my neighbors. I have invested time, energy, prayer, and money to fulfill the call of God to go to “Judea, Samaria, and even the remotest parts of the earth”, but missed many opportunities to witness in “Jerusalem”. I have personally been challenged this past year to live out the command of Mark 8:31 to “love your neighbor”. I have intentionally looked to get to know my neighbors and share the love of Jesus with them. Not just neighbors who share my city but those who share my street. I no...

TTC led me out of darkness and into the love I’ve longed for my entire life, the love of JESUS.  They’ve taught me to love like Jesus by walking out my created purpose.  My Spirit has been healed, I am whole, because of their obedience to do God’s will.  They have introduced me to and welcomed me into a powerful tribe of women that love Jesus with their whole heart.  Women that strengthen, teach, support, and encourage one another with the power and authority given by the Holy Spirit.  I am eternally grateful for their ministry and humbled to be called family.
