The goal of the Children’s Ministry at Redeemer is to see the NYC East Side children and families renewed spiritually, socially, and culturally by the Gospel. We work toward this goal by immersing them in Scripture, teaching them how to pray and worship, and facilitating spiritual growth among a new generation in New York City. We believe that children are essential to the missional movement of the Gospel.

In addition to teaching children to live gospel-centered lives, the Children’s Ministry seeks to encourage and support families in their commitment to stay and engage the city by facilitating, discipling and offering practical support to them as they apply Redeemer’s values and beliefs to their families.


Our Theme


The Gospel in the City for all Generations.

+ We trust the gospel to do the work

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.” Romans 1:16

+ We seek a renewed city/neighborhood

“Also seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.” Jeremiah 29:7

+ We believe that children are essential to missional movement of the gospel

“We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. So the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but keep his commands." Psalm 78:4, 6-7
