In the Spring of 2016 2,800 people generously pledged $32.5M to Rise. We are committed to keeping you informed on the progress of initiatives that are being launched, in partnership with Redeemer and City to City, as a direct result of these funds.
Church planting is an essential part of the vision to accelerate the gospel movement in New York City. Since the launch of this strategy in 2016, Redeemer Presbyterian Church and Redeemer City to City have already helped plant many new churches in new neighborhoods—with many more in preparation for planting in 2017 and 2018.

No vision this large can be undertaken without tremendous, persistent prayer.
Seek the peace and prosperity of the city… PRAY TO THE LORD FOR IT because if it prospers, you too will prosper.
Pray for the 10 new churches that Redeemer City to City helped plant across New York City this past year. May they remain rooted in the gospel and a place of rich community where friendships are forged, support for each other is fostered and where new people come to experience and profess faith in Christ.
Pray that the input congregants provided in the recent church-wide survey would strengthen and renew Redeemer’s approach to fostering spiritual growth so that many more Redeemer congregants become servant leaders who live out the gospel in their relationships, workplaces and neighborhoods.
Please pray that God would use the future ES building to serve and renew the people and neighborhood around it. That it would foster a sense of permanent belonging in a neighborhood and be a public utility for all.>/span>
We ask you to continually pray for the work still ahead of us as we continue to raise $20M, from partners around the country, in order to reach our goal of $80M.
