"Keller responded, "I'm not retiring. Moving into a strategic role of raising up leaders and training the next generation."
"Christianity Today" reported:
"This move does not mean retirement for Manhattan’s most popular evangelical pastor and apologist; instead, Keller will work full-time teaching in a partner program with Reformed Theological Seminary and working with Redeemer’s City to City church planting network."
CT went on to report:
"He noted that he drove around to all the services on Sunday." - "The Christian Post"
Well, that's nice. I wonder when was the last time he did that?
The continuing goal of Keller's corrupt churches:
"Among the things the church hopes to achieve with this move are: Long-term community development in NYC that transforms poor communities into prospering mixed income neighborhoods; new university graduates who receive training and mentoring in integrating their faith and work; affordable high quality day care and after school programs encouraging families to stay in the city long term; neighborhoods across the city openly welcoming and embracing the presence of Christian churches; churches that are resourced by world-class experts from agencies in faith and work, social justice, evangelism and community building and churches that are using gospel-based resources designed to change hearts and form new communities of believing individuals united in serving their cities with the love and hope of Christ."
Keller, like Rick Warren, designed his church specifically around God-haters after asking them what would it take to get them to come to church; in other words Keller is just a Reformed version of Rick Warren.
Of course when a "pastor" of 27 years leaves a church, one must wonder why? Why now? Claims of "this has been in the works for years"
