Message from Tim Keller

Last November, the leadership of the Redeemer family of churches decided to host a gathering of congregants from all of our churches called Redeemer Night. We scheduled it for May 19. In God's good providence, it was the day Tim Keller went to be with his Savior. Redeemer Night suddenly took on a new meaning. Tim was asked several weeks ago by our network pastoral leadership team to share a few thoughts on video about his vision moving forward for our network of churches and ministries. What had not been anticipated was that it would be his final word to the congregants of our five Redeemer churches. We share it with the hope that it will encourage and strengthen all who view it to love and serve Jesus in whatever context you find yourself.

Timothy J. Keller (September 23, 1950 – May 19, 2023), who was the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, co-founder of Redeemer City to City, and the author of several books, died at the age of 72 on May 19, 2023, trusting in the sure and certain hope of the resurrection. He is survived by his wife, Kathy, his three sons and their wives, a sister, and seven grandchildren. A live stream worship service followed by a memorial will be held in the coming weeks. More details will be provided at timothykeller.com.
