Our Redeemer family has always had a beautiful vision. Almost 63 years ago, a small group of families came together because they had two things: a heart for Jesus’ mission for the world, and a passion for raising children (and families) to be a part of that mission. Imagine their joy if they had only known how many thousands of lives would be forever changed. Imagine their joy to know Jesus is still pouring out favor on Redeemer and that we still carry that vision.
Everything around us is changing: the city, the neighbors, the culture, the houses. Jesus calls us to take His never-changing Gospel to an ever-changing world. Several times over the past 63 years, God has called us to boldly follow where He leads and has faithfully blessed us.
The time has come for us to adjust and grow. We intend to faithfully answer that call to follow.
WE ARE IN A GREAT PLACE! Not only is Redeemer located perfectly to do great ministry in Austin, we are also a healthy, growing, and diverse community. While other churches and schools are struggling or declining, Jesus has continued to bless us with a vitality that compels us to think about the future with great hope and excitement.
Imagine a bucket full of water and a pitcher that keeps pouring water into that bucket. The bucket begins to overflow because it cannot contain the volume of water that keeps pouring into it.
That water is ministry at Redeemer. It is the hungry who are fed; the struggling who are helped; the couples who are counseled; the single parents who are assisted; the youth who are mentored; and the children (and families) who are cared for by this ministry. It’s weddings, funerals, baptisms, confirmations. It’s worship and Bible groups, mission trips, and loving our local neighbors. This is where we invest in eternal things. This water is beginning to pour out of the bucket.
The bucket is our capacity to do great ministry here at Redeemer.
AND WE NEED A BIGGER BUCKET.

NEW COMMERCIAL KITCHEN
We envision a family ministry hub that will also serve the community as a gathering place for arts and performances, personal growth opportunities, and a safe place to ask questions about Jesus.
Imagine a place where husbands and wives, children, parents, grandparents, and singles can all take next steps as followers of Jesus. We envision a place where whole families become stronger together.
From there, we are sent into homes, neighborhoods, offices, and workplaces to impact the lives of our neighbors.
This hub will also create the ability to build more classrooms in our current cafeteria so we can meet the demand of enrollment. This translates into more families encountering Jesus through our school!
