My name is Rachel and I am 25 years old and have a five year old son. I spent all of my teens and early twenties partying, drinking, and abusing drugs. I was in and out of clubs all over Atlanta. After many years of this crazy life I was exhausted, far from God, and the relationship with my son was almost non existent. I came to the end of my rope and hit my rock bottom one night in a club and thankfully there were some godly woman in the club spreading the gospel and their words gave me hope. Shortly after meeting them I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal lord and savior and my life completely changed. My idea of Christianity was all twisted, and I thought that as a christian I wasn’t aloud to have “fun” any more. As a new christian I just wasn’t “getting” it, I didn’t understand the bible all that well but I did know that I felt the peace that surpasses all understanding and that was enough reason to stay on the path I was taking. I attended a City Takers concert and it blew my mind, I had no idea Christians could be so awesome and transparent about their issues, taking their hurts and struggles and bringing the glory back to God through hip hop music. My first concert for me was a little bit of heaven, My brothers and sisters in Christ Going Wild for Jesus and being free to worship, dance, and sing openly and freely with no one judging, starring, or making comments. I left filled up instead of the empty horrible feeling I use to have from living the party life. I left with a whole new understanding of the gospel, and knowing I don’t have to be ashamed of my past, I can be proud of what God pulled me out of. City Takers has shown me you don’t have to put God in a box. Now my son and my mother both attend with me and we look forward every month to the concerts, we wear out Jesus Piece proudly 🙂
