Washington D.C. Testimony!

This summer, we offered an internship program called Occupy for high school and college students. Occupy is a 6-week program that is geared toward helping students grow in their identity and intimacy with God by going deeper in the Word of God, prayer, and evangelism. The internship offers the opportunity for students to learn the backbones of ministry by working closely with Take the City staff in administration, social media, and videography.

While in the program, the students took a trip to Washington D.C. to pray for people on the streets, share the Gospel, and participate in an event called Together 2016. Here is a testimony from one of our students named Ashley:

“During our time in D.C. we had the opportunity to pray and worship with the founder of Men for All Nations, Dick Simmons.  We had the privilege of praying in Dick’s personal prayer room called the “War Room,” which is located in the upper room of his apartment and beautifully overlooks the supreme court.  While we were praying, I started to feel God’s presence more and more. I began praying over two of our leaders, Bryan and Kursti.  I noticed when I prayed for an anointing to rest over their lives, my whole body would get hot.  Whenever I would stray away from what the Lord was showing me, my body would get colder.  I’m amazed at how God continues to reveal Himself as a supernatural God. Experiencing this has opened my eyes to a new level of discernment in the place of intercession.


Amongst the many amazing experiences I’ve had with God, I must share this last one. During our trip there was such a grace to speak and use the gift of tongues. Each day I spoke in tongues more and more.  And as I spoke in tongues more, the presence of the Lord grew sweeter and sweeter. It was almost as If I could taste it.


I can honestly say I left Washington D.C. praying differently and more aware of the reality that God’s goodness does not have a limit.” -Ashley Faulker

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.
