Tim Keller to Step Down as Senior Pastor at Redeemer Presbyterian Church
NEW YORK - After July 1, Tim Keller, founding pastor of the multi-campus Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, will no longer be at the church's helm.
Bethany Jenkins, a church member who directs a faith and work initiative for The Gospel Coalition, first revealed the move in a tweet Sunday.
"Big day for @RedeemerNYC, as @timkellernyc announced he's stepping down as senior pastor as of July 1. Perfect hymn followed," she noted. The fitting hymn that followed was "Lead On, O King Eternal," according to Jenkins.
Keller, 66, started Redeemer in 1989 with his wife, Kathy, and three young sons. For more than twenty years he has led the diverse congregation of young professionals that has grown to a weekly attendance of more than 5,000.
