City to City Asia Pacific is the global affiliate of Redeemer City to City, New York. We are a gospel-centered leadership development organization that prayerfully recruits, trains, coaches, and provides resources for church planting leaders. Our hope is for gospel movements to be cultivated in key global mega-cities through church planting. The formation of City to City Asia Pacific is the answer to many years of prayer from many - Redeemer City to City leaders in New York, as well as pastors, business and cultural leaders alike in Asia Pacific.
Our mission is to prayerfully help leaders start and strengthen churches to advance the gospel together in their city. Our vision is to see the gospel of Jesus Christ transform lives and impact cities.
City to City Asia Pacific is working in many of the global and mega cities through support in planting new churches or church revitalization, the training of ministry and cultural leaders, and providing resources in several different languages to cities in networks throughout the Asia Pacific region. These networks currently include cities in Northeast Asia, Southeast Asia, China, India, and Australia, and is expanding.
Centrality of the Gospel
What draws us and binds us together is the gospel. Gospel DNA is an understanding of how the gospel shapes all of life - from the heart, to churches, and to the cities. It is a vision of the world put into action.
Our presence at target cities in Asia Pacific is guided by these key elements:
Urban centers with economic and cultural influences
Church planters with a deep sense of calling for the city, leadership potential, gospel-shaped character
Partnership commitment of the local church leadership for church planter oversight
Our footprint coincides precisely with the most dynamic cities in Asia Pacific - emerging urban clusters that will drive dramatic economic growth and demographic changes over the next decade
As a movement of gospel-centered churches develop in the region, we seek sustainable operational models to better serve and catalyze this continuous dynamic growth. We build upon Redeemer Global/Redeemer City to City's experience and resources to create opportunities in partnering with our network leaders, pastors, trainers and coaches in Asia Pacific. This fosters a local leadership that is unique for Asia Pacific context as our leaders begin to shape their own gospel ministry models and further develop resources for the future.
City Renewal Fund
A gift to the City Renewal Fund provides a $50,000 grant to a new church as startup capital. The church gifts the original grant forward to a new church plant by Year 7. By Year 10, the fund grows to $115,000 and helps to plant a third church.
