There’s some big news from New York megachurch Redeemer Presbyterian: The church’s long-time senior pastor, Tim Keller is stepping down. The influential 66-year-old pastor announced today that the transition would go into effect on July 1.
According to Christianity Today, the move is part of the church’s longstanding plan to become three churches, instead of one church with multiple locations.
Though he will no longer be Redeemer’s senior pastor, Keller will still be deeply involved in ministry. After stepping down, he will teach full time through a program at Reformed Theological Seminary. He will also work with the City to City network, which plants churches and will speak at various church events—including the “Questioning Christianity” series.
Keller has pastored the church since 1989.
