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 congregants of Redeemer and believers across the city to discern how the Spirit is leading them to rise and serve in this time and place, for the good of
the city that blessings and goodness multiplies.
