REDEEMER CITY TO CITY INVITES YOU TO
AN EVENING WITH TIM KELLER
Redeemer City to City is a nonprofit organization that prayerfully helps leaders start and strengthen churches to advance the gospel together in their city.
Last year, Birmingham partnered together to give $1,219,000 to the global work of Redeemer City to City.
On Monday, November 11 at 6pm the Birmingham community of supporters will gather together. We will hear a ministry message and global update from Tim Keller and other special guests.
ABOUT CITY TO CITY
Redeemer City to City (CTC) is a non-profit organization that prayerfully recruits, trains, coaches and resources leaders who start and strengthen churches in global cities. CTC was co-founded and is chaired by Tim Keller. The team is based in New York City and overseas, and is at work in the global cities of Africa, Asia, Australia, North America, Latin America, the Middle East and Europe.
As of January 2019, CTC has helped start 632 new churches in 70+ cities and trained or connected with 24,000+ leaders in city ministry and evangelism.
All of this is done to help bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to cities.
Check out one one of our videos or download our annual report to learn more.
Tim and Kathy Keller moved to NYC to start a church. New Yorkers responded positively, and other leaders in other cities noticed. They asked for help.
City to City was born because ministry leaders needed help to reach the most influential places on earth: cities. Churches in cities are under-resourced and too few while cities are exploding in growth.
WHY WE EXIST
City to City exists to help leaders start and strengthen churches to advance the gospel in cities.
HOW WE MEET THE NEED
We help churches focus on how the good news of Jesus Christ creates personal and social change. We equip them to address the specific questions of the time and neighborhood, collaborate for the good of the city, and multiply.
HOW WE MEASURE IMPACT
If resourced and trained leaders start churches and churches work together, lives and cities will change through the Holy Spirit. We’ll know it’s working through stories of change and through the number of churches started and churches involved.
You’re invited to join this work. See it up close. Pray for millions of new and strong churches in cities. Give to this work. And invite others to do the same.
