The Partnership program is a two-year program that takes a cohort of established churches from around the U.S., partners them financially with a new church in a global city, and provides customized training from Tim Keller and the CTC team.
The International Church Planting Intensive has been Redeemer City to City’s (CTC’s) foundational training for nine years. The Intensive was originally held only in NYC, but in 2012 it became clear that the demand for this unique, month-long crash course in church planting was needed in the major cities of Asia Pacific.
Eighty network leaders representing 41 global cities and 26 countries met in NYC from March 7-9. A network is formed when leaders from the same city, region or even country develop relationships and formally decide to work together to plant churches and reach their geographical area with the gospel. NLF is a gathering of these network leaders.
I am humbled and yet confident that God has called me to lead this organization and fantastic team for this strategic time of opportunity and growth.

We met Caro in the first small group held at Fuente de Redención Church in Mexico City. Caro came with a friend, and she came hurting. Her husband’s unfaithfulness had led to their divorce, and many struggles continued between them as he had taken property that was hers. Caro never expected to experience this kind of family heartache. She was angry with God.
