The Power of Prayer and Mission: Lessons from Church History

June 26, 2024

The Power of Prayer and Mission: Lessons from Church History In our latest podcast episode, we delved into the profound impact of a life dedicated to prayer and mission, drawing inspiration from the early church and notable historical examples. The early church was a vibrant community marked by a deep commitment to fasting, prayer, worship, and the relentless spreading of the good news. This foundational model offers timeless lessons for us today. One of the most remarkable stories comes from Hernhutt, Germany, where a group known as the Moravians ignited a prayer movement that lasted an astonishing 100 years. This fervent commitment to prayer was not just a spiritual exercise but a driving force behind one of the most prolific missionary movements in history. The Moravians’ dedication to prayer fueled their passion for mission, leading them to carry the gospel to every continent. Among their notable achievements was the conversion of John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement. Wesley’s encounter with the Moravians had a profound impact on his faith, ultimately leading him to spark the First Great Awakening in America during the 1700s. This revival brought a wave of spiritual renewal across the American colonies, highlighting how a community deeply rooted in prayer can influence the course of history. Church history is replete with examples of what God can do through a community devoted to prayer and mission. The Moravians’ story is a testament to the enduring power of prayer and the incredible ways God can work through those who are committed to His mission. Their legacy encourages us to cultivate a life of prayer and to...

Hope Inspires

December 21, 2022

Hope Inspires//Cindy Gardner It’s our joy to conclude our Inspire Campaign stories with someone who is a true inspiration to us, as well as to so many in the community. Cindy Gardner is the Follow-up Coordinator for Redeem’s Beautiful Exchange Boutique at Take the City. Her story really began when someone handed her a card they’d been given through a TTC outreach. She called the number, and the rest is now a three-year history. Today, you might find Cindy driving someone as far as Montgomery, AL to a treatment center, taking blankets out on the street, or with her host of volunteers, organizing donated clothes. The boutique, which was remodeled this year, has racks of clothes in all sizes, accessories, shoes, and handbags, as well as hygiene kits. “Not only do women come in from the street, where they can also get a shower and use the laundry facilities, but women who need an outfit for a job interview or other appointments can come in. Nothing is sold here– it’s all given away,” Cindy said. Her volunteers have seen the changes in the women who come through and have heard their stories. “It’s what it’s all about,” said one volunteer with tears in her eyes. “I cry even just looking around the boutique, because it represents giving God our best.” Cindy has a vision for the future that Redeem will offer its own rehab program one day. If anyone can see it done, Cindy, who does nothing without the Lord, has the inspiring faith needed that will lead to reaching more and more women. Inspired by Cindy’s testimony? Become...

My experience with the Take the City crew was like coming into a family.  Our team was welcomed in with open arms with like-hearted believers who love Jesus and have laid down their lives to serve the broken of the city! It was an honor to come alongside them, be welcomed into their homes, share meals, and experience the transformational work that God is doing in and through them to see His Kingdom come.
