New York City Campus
New York, NY
Is RTS NYC Right for You?
RTS was invited to come to New York City in 2015 by Dr. Tim Keller and Redeemer City to City. Our goal is to provide New Yorkers with academically rigorous and spiritually rich theological education. Our graduates are given a foundation for a lifetime of effective urban ministry. In doing so we desire to be part of a larger movement of God raising up leaders to reach New York City for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We offer the 66 credit-hour Master of Arts (Biblical Studies) degree comprised of courses in Greek, Hebrew, Bible, Theology, History and Living the Christian Life in Secular Culture. Students who complete our MABS degree are eligible for courses in the City Ministry Program taught by Dr. Tim Keller and leading urban ministry practitioners on staff with Redeemer City to City.
Applicants to our program are also able to apply for funding to the Redeemer City Ministry Scholarship Program. In partnership with Redeemer City to City, RTS aims to see God raise a new generation of leaders equipped to serve in New York City and global cities around the World.
