Meet Tim Keller at Desiring God Blog

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.

Watch him tell his story over at Desiring God Blog here and here.

In my former life I was a history teacher at Irvington High School in Fremont. I love watching and discussing movies (but not at the same time), playing board games, hiking, visiting local cafes, and watching and complaining about (at the same time) Bay Area sports.
