The Rev. Timothy Keller to Step Down from Redeemer Presbyterian Church

Religion News Service’s Emily McFarlan Miller reports, “The Rev. Timothy Keller, one of the country’s most popular and influential conservative Christian thinkers, will step down this summer as senior pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York.” After the announcement was made on Sunday, Keller explained that he would continue to work with the Redeemer City to City church planting network. Miller writes, “Redeemer’s three congregations will become ‘full-fledged congregations’ with their own staffs and senior pastors, according to the announcement. That follows a decades-old plan the church put in place so as not to become a single megachurch, but a ‘family’ of smaller churches.”
