About RTS New York

RTS came to New York at the invitation of Dr. Timothy Keller and Redeemer City to City (CTC). Through this gospel partnership, RTS offers New Yorkers excellent theological education and CTC offers premier practical training for urban ministry through their City Ministry Program (CMP). Applicants to the MABS program can apply to the Redeemer City Ministry Scholarship Program. Through this gospel partnership, we prayerfully aim to see God raise up pastors and leaders for ministry in New York City.

Unique Preparation for Urban Ministry 

As an RTS NYC student, you have a unique opportunity to prepare for ministry in the City. All of your our Biblical and theological reflection is informed by your urban context. Our Introduction to Pastoral and Theological Studies course is team-taught face to face by RTS Chancellor Dr. Ligon Duncan and Redeemer Presbyterian Church founding pastor Dr. Tim Keller. Dr. Keller also teaches Living the Christian Life in Secular Culture face to face. Upon graduation, you have the opportunity to take courses in preaching, pastoral care, missions, evangelism, theology for urban ministry and leadership through the Redeemer City Ministry Program. These courses are taught by Dr. Keller and other urban ministry practitioners in the City.  Together the RTS Master of Arts (Biblical Studies) and the CTC City Ministry Program offer unparalleled training for ministry in the global city.
