Who is Tim Keller? He is the lead pastor at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City. He planted Redeemer in 1989, a time when people said that an evangelical church could not survive in New York. Redeemer started with 15 people. Their weekly attendance is now over 5,000 people. He’s also a prolific writer and the leader of a growing urban church planting movement. Above all else Keller is an amazing preacher with an unique gift for teaching the Bible with a relentlessly Christ centered focus while engaging the prevailing secular ideas of today. He’s one of my heroes.
