NEW RESOURCE WEBSITE FOR CENTER CHURCH
Center Church, Timothy Keller’s long-awaited book on ministry in an urban context, is his first book written specifically for working pastors.
At nearly 400 pages in length, with discussion questions at the end of each chapter, the book is suited for pastors, church planters, seminary students, church leadership teams, and theologically trained lay leaders. It can function as a guidebook for ministry leaders to think through the implications of the gospel for their own context, helping them bridge the gap between doctrine and practice.
As Timothy Keller writes, too often pastors “adopt ministry models wholesale,” replicating things like worship style or liturgical form “without recognizing the presuppositions, convictions and decisions that went into it.” This is a critical issue for Redeemer City to City, which was started by Rev. Keller and has helped start over 200 churches in 40 global cities with local pastors that work within the local culture and context.
We are excited to launch a new website to accompany the book, Center Church.com, where you can sign up to receive exclusive extras and resources to help your team work through the ideas in Center Church. A new group of resources, including a live video with Timothy Keller discussing the book with a group of pastors in New York City, will be posted each month starting in November 2012. The intention is that any church planting cohort, group of local pastors or leadership team can participate in this learning experience.
