Redeemer City to City (CTC) is a nonprofit organization that helps leaders build gospel movements in global cities. CTC was founded and is chaired by Tim Keller. The team is based in New York City and overseas, and is at work in cities around the world.

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

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

What is hub?

A hub is a focal point. It’s a place in the center that draws in energy and activity, and sends it out again. A hub can be a home, neighborhood, airport, city, or a neighborhood church.  

HUB is what we call CTC’s annual donor investor weekend. In 2017, we’ll host the 7th HUB Weekend in New York City at the JW Marriott Essex House, and we hope it is the most engaging yet. The weekend is made up of shared meals, conversation, plenary and breakout sessions, and organizational briefings.

Led by Tim Keller and working through local leaders, our team hopes to further a gospel revival that is also shouldered by many partners, advanced through prayer, follows in the steps of the Apostles, and already underway.

The HUB Community has grown into a group of close friends that reunites around CTC’s cause, and new friends are added each year. We are excited to meet you!

Please join us.

When needed we can give more advice about travel to New York City.


There is no minimum donation to attend. During the weekend we will formally invite guests to invest in this mission.

We find that guests at HUB give in a varying range according to their call, resonance with CTC's mission, and capacity. A typical HUB gift is about $25,000 per fiscal year. Overall, gifts tend to be in the range of $5,000 - $2M per year per household. Often a gift will involve one-on-one conversations with Tim Keller and our team leadership, and HUB is the perfect place for conversations like that.

CTC is committed to building meaningful, ongoing relationships with our current and potential donors. We are encouraged, humbled and inspired by all of our supporters, and we thank God for each one.
