What we do
Take the City is a Christ-centered movement that unites and mobilizes the Body of Christ in the areas of proclamation, compassion and justice to see our cities revitalized. As the Body of Christ comes together in a spirit of unity and is mobilized into our community to bring the hope of the Gospel. Each month we offer training and take teams into target locations where we serve in practical ways, share the gospel and build lasting relationships. Over time we know that the transforming power of God’s love will change families, neighborhoods and cities forever.
Our goal is to see our cities forever changed for the glory of God.
Since 2013 we have 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!
Our mission has been to simply help unify and mobilize the Body of Christ to see this area revitalized.
It has been amazing to witness neighborhoods being transformed as we have gone back and ministered in the same places over and over again. God is truly doing a new thing in this area and we believe that this is just the beginning of a movement that will help to revitalize the area! Without the support and combined efforts of so many here locally none of this would be possible. This has truly been a collaborative effort to further the Kingdom of God in our area!
Our goal is not to build a single church or to grow a huge ministry.
Our goal is to serve the churches and ministries that already exist. Our hope is to serve local churches and communities in a way that will further the Kingdom of God. Our hope is that Jesus would be made famous in our community. We believe that God has given us a strategy that will help the Kingdom of God grow in this area. We hope to see schools, businesses and churches all over the community thriving and growing in a way like never before!
