Last fall, Redeemer City to City (CTC) and the Birmingham community came together for a special evening that raised $1.5M. Since then, we've worked together to start new churches that bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to global cities.
On Monday evening, November 6, we will gather once again at The Club to celebrate and support this mission and hear from Tim Keller, who transitioned to CTC full-time for this very cause.
CTC looks forward to seeing old friends and welcoming new ones into this vibrant, innovative community of Birmingham partners.
More details to come.
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 423 new churches in 56 cities. CTC has also trained 13,000+ new leaders in city ministry and evangelism, published 28 resources to help recruit, empower, and develop these leaders, and helped to form 50 gospel networks around the globe.
All of this is done to help bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to cities.
