Vision Night 2015

September 24, 2015

Since 2013 Take the City has mobilized hundreds of people into neighborhoods where we have seen thousands of lives impacted. In 2013-14 we worked with over 75 different churches and impacted approximately 9,500 lives. We saw 221 people come to salvation in Christ in those two years and fed over 5,800 people at our various outreaches and events. We have hosted kids clubs and bible studies that have impacted children and their families in inner city neighborhoods like Wilson Apartments in Columbus. We also hosted an 8-week intensive training where we had over 50 participants from various churches learn how to lead themselves and others into a lifestyle of evangelism. God has truly done amazing things as we have witnessed the body of Christ coming together to see our cities revitalized! As we look forward we believe that all of this is truly just the beginning of what God wants to do in our area. Our Vision is to transform our cities by serving in the areas of proclamation, compassion and justice. Imagine hundreds of churches and organizations from across the Chattahoochee Valley area coming together to love, serve and pray for their region. Imagine what could be accomplished if we built greater collaboration among civic, corporate, and church leaders spanning economic and denominational lines. Imagine the impact if we could help establish sustainable efforts unique to each neighborhood that would revitalize entire areas of our community. Please come join us for a night to celebrate all that God has already done and to also hear about how you can partner with what God is doing through the ministry of Take the City!...

We can transform a city!

August 7, 2015

We can transform a city…  The idea that we can actually transform an entire city can at times seem a bit overwhelming or even idealistic but if you look through the Bible you will see that God has a heart to transform cities. His desire is that entire cities and regions would be rebuilt, restored and renewed. He sent Jesus into the world not so that he could condemn our cities but rather so that He could save them (Jn 3:17). The vision that God has given us at Take the City is to see entire cities transformed by the power of Gospel. We believe that the only solution to the problems our cities are facing is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our area desperately needs the sons and daughters of God to bring this message of reconciliation. We believe that as the church serves our community by meeting basic needs and bringing the gospel message that our community will never be the same! This summer my family made a huge step of faith when we decided to launch into this ministry full time. We believe that God has huge plans for this area and that it is now time to invest ourselves 100% to seeing this area transformed. Would you be willing to help us as we launch this ministry by partnering with us on a monthly basis, joining our prayer team or helping in another way? We would love for you to prayerfully consider joining our partnership team to help us transform the Chattahoochee Valley area! For the Kingdom! – Andrew...

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.
