Welcome to our Official Website ​

Welcome to Take the City National! We are ready to change lives and make this world a better place for our children. Taking over, one city at a time! Join the revolution!



Take The City National (TTCN) is a powerful, inner-city outreach to youth and families of all ages. It is time to take our cities for Jesus Christ. TTCN is the heart and conception of our founders Stacy Bart and Ralph Oliver. TTCN is seeking to EMPOWER the lives of our youth, their families and communities for many generations to come. Join us as we establish a Godly foundation for our youth. Our prayer is that you will be blessed by this website with God’s divine favor and that you live in total freedom. We pray that you dream your dream. We pray that you exercise your gifts and talents.


“If we are able to cleanse our tongue of what is spoken in our homes, we can then start changing what is spoken in our communities to prevent from killing our youth. Let us begin to cleanse our communities, so our youth can empower the nation.”
