Program areas at Redeemer City To City

Gospel in Life (GIL) became part or Redeemer City to City (RCTC) in January 2023. GIL stewards and distributes Dr. Timothy Keller's sermons, conference talks, articles and group studies and works closely with the Resource team to develop strategies to translate and distribute those materials through the RCTC networks in ways that enhance their local content development efforts. This represents an incredible opportunity to reach new people and get more resources into the hands of leaders across the globe. In April 2023, a dream of Dr. Keller and his wife Kathy Keller and the GIL team was finally realized when we were able to make all sermons and talks on the GIL website free. The GIL podcast averaged more than 2.5 million downloads a month and that number continues to grow, and people from 218 countries received GIL teachings and resources. More than 200,000 people subscribed to receive regular emails, new content and updates. A gospel message from Dr. Keller was heard over 41 million times, and there were over 30 million downloads of a GIL podcast.
Once a church is launched, we provide further training and coaching to support sustainability, and we connect these churches to other churches and ministries. We convene leaders for innovative learning and coaching. In fiscal year 2023, by working with partners around the globe, more than 14,000 leaders were trained. Some highlights include: Hosted an Intensive in French in Abidjan, training 34 participants who represent national, denominational leaders. Shared their vision to start new churches and saturate churches and the marketplace in Cte d'Ivoire with the gospel. In Kuala Lumpur, 6 women, trained to facilitate small Parakaleo groups, held an in-person seminar, giving a taste of Parakaleo to 12 attendees. As a result, 1 additional small group has been set up to support growing needs. Parakaleo is a ministry and training program designed to build gospel-based resilience and help women feel less alone in church planting. In the midst of war, the network in Ukraine still held Incubator online with 9 Ukrainian planters. Of these 9 churches, 3 are outside of Ukraine, planting for refugees, and 6 are in the country. The 2 in Kiev have relaunched after a period of evacuation. In North America, the African American Initiative convened leaders to strengthen a national collaborative movement for greater faithfulness and fruitfulness in African American church planting, missions, revitalization and leadership development. In London, 12 new coaches were trained in collaboration with the London Project, which sees coaching as a key element to their city impact strategy. In Buenos Aires, 12 new coach trainers from all over South America were trained. This training used the revised coaching manual translated into Spanish. CTC NYC continued to build up teams of evangelism leaders in churches throughout the city through i) learning cohorts ii) coaching and iii) special city-wide gatherings. 25 churches participated in evangelism learning cohorts.
The church planter program funds leaders and networks who start new churches and church networks in cities around the world. Our primary goal is to help start new churches that meet the spiritual and physical needs of their cities. In fiscal year 2023, the church planter program assisted leaders to launch 572 churches. And helped support church plants and networks across 5 continents in cities such as London, Frankfurt, Chicago, Miami, Mexico City, Lima, Gauteng, Abidjan, Accra, Dubai, Tokyo and Kuala Lumpur. To date the program has reached over 85 global cities where 1,633 churches have been started.
The Resource team is responsible for developing and carrying out a publishing strategy that equips gospel movements around the world through books, training and other content resources, such as articles, podcasts, videos and online courses, created by a diverse range of global practitioners. The Resource team created An Introduction to Curriculum Design to teach principals for developing cross-cultural training programs for adults in ministry. In collaboration with RCTC's director of coaching, the resource team completed the Gospel Coaching curriculum's assessment, analysis, development and implementation, with the aim of enhancing the effectiveness of gospel coaching. A second season of How to Reach the West Again Podcast was produced, focused on cities. The two seasons have received 130,000 listens. Eight seminal Dr. Timothy Keller sermons were translated into several non-English languages.
The Global Faith & Work Initiative (GFWI), a ministry of RCTC, equips ministry leaders to develop faith and work ministry within their current ministry context. GFWI published The Missional Disciple: Pursuing Mercy and Justice at Work, a six week course exploring how mercy and justice are central to the biblical story and at the heart of God's character. The book has sold over 900 copies. 53 pastors and ministry leaders were trained in the Designing a Faith & Work Initiative Intensive. More than 350 leaders have now participated in this intensive and are utilizing the training in their ministries around the world. A Pastor's Toolkit was created with resources for pastors and worship or lay leaders interested in linking the Christian faith to the workplace. GFWI premiered 3 new videos of Christians pushing against brokenness. These videos, with 7 other cultural renewal case studies, are part of the Pastor's Toolkit.
