Tim's Talk on Psalm 88


Redeemer City to City (CTC) is a non-profit organization that prayerfully recruits, trains, coaches and resources leaders who cultivate gospel movements 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.

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.
