The Plan

The New York Project is a strategy that will take 10 years.

To accelerate a gospel movement in New York, it will take much more than a single church or a single denomination. It will take a network of hundreds of gospel-centered churches from many denominations; it will take hundreds of trained pastors and lay leaders equipped for the challenge of ministry in New York; and it will take a long-term commitment to the neighborhoods of New York through permanent ministry homes for churches and their neighbors to share.

New Churches

Communities loving and serving the city

Cost: $15 million

New Leaders

Trained in New York, for New York

Cost: $20 million

New Homes

Church buildings that serve neighborhoods

Cost: $45 million

The first phase is estimated to cost $80 million. 

This ambitious goal of $80 million for the first phase (2016-2019) will only be possible if God provides. Through the Rise campaign, the Redeemer church community has pledged $32.5 million to date. We are seeking the remaining funds through partnerships with gospel patrons across the country who believe in the vision of accelerating a gospel movement in New York. 

A new collaborative partnership will lead the movement forward.

Redeemer Churches & Ministries and Redeemer City to City—both founded by Tim Keller—will work collaboratively to lead the New York Project.
