Redeemer City to City (CTC) is a non-profit organization that helps leaders start new, gospel-centered churches in global cities. Please join us as CTC launches long term engagement with the City of Birmingham and gives $1M to this global effort.

CTC is currently meeting many leaders in the Birmingham community in hopes of communicating the global mission of CTC and rallying support around it. We are so thankful for the spirit of friendship that has been extended to us, and we look forward to working with you for years to come.

On Nov. 7, we will draw this community together in order to share the cause of CTC and hear from CTC’s Chairman of the Board Tim Keller.



Redeemer City to City (CTC) is a non-profit organization that helps leaders start new, gospel-centered churches in global cities. CTC was founded and 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.

CTC’s core competencies are urban church planting, leadership development, and content creation.

To date, CTC has helped to start 381 new churches in 54 cities. CTC has also trained 11,000 new leaders in city ministry and evangelism and published 28 resources to help recruit, empower, and develop these leaders.

All of this is done to help bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to cities.
