TIM KELLER, CHAIRMAN AND CO-FOUNDER OF CITY TO CITY, AND JOE STOWELL, PRESIDENT OF CORNERSTONE UNIVERSITY, INVITE YOU TO ATTEND TOGETHER FOR THE CITY
More than half the world’s population lives in urban areas. Tokyo has 38 million people. Shanghai has 23 million. Lagos has grown to nearly 10 million in less than a decade. It’s estimated that two-thirds of people will live in cities by 2050.
As cities grow, so does the need for more urban churches. At Together for the City, Tim Keller will talk about his passion for cities and why he is devoting the rest of his life to investing in future ministry leaders who will work to spread the gospel to city dwellers around the world.
We will also hear about a new book, written by church planters Neil Powell and John James, titled Together for the City. The book tells the story of a group of leaders from across denominations who came together in a brand new way, creating a vision for their city called 2020birmingham. You can learn more about the book here.
This event is for pastors and ministry leaders who are working together for the spread of the gospel in their cities.
We hope you can join Tim Keller and Joe Stowell for this special event. You can purchase your ticket below.
ABOUT CITY TO CITY
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.
