CHANGING THE CITY WITH THE GOSPEL TAKES A MOVEMENT
One of the speakers was Dr. Tim Keller. Tim Keller is founder and pastor emeritus of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City. Also many others were contributing during day by CTCE-talks and workshops on Wednesday. This conference was a unique opportunity to meet more than 700 European church planters, their leadership team members, pastors and others from dozens of cities across Europe.
"I’m very excited that the theme of the next City to City conference is “Movement of the Gospel”. Our city, like many cities across Europe, is a growing and dynamic eco-system of human life and culture. Dr Keller's works have consistently inspired me to think with care and precision about how urban church plants can bring the rich beauty of the gospel to bear upon the inhabitants of the city.
City to City conferences are an excellent place to connect with church planters from across Europe and to hear the story of what God is doing across this wonderful continent. Connecting with other leaders, working in similar situations to our own has sparked some our most fruitful ideas and has helped to sustain me in church planting ministry."

"Gospel, Good News! What is that in modern world? How we keep and communicate unchangeable message in so divers reality?
Gospel is dynamic, how we keep that dynamic in our self, churches, cities and world?
CTC movement is not only expanding in numbers but we want to take much deeper look into dynamic of Gospel movement. We would like to encourage and challenge church planters with a question – How we keep Dynamic of the Gospel in our ministry? How is this touching our personal life? What is our vision for our cities to be attracted by Gospel? What others are doing? What are creative ways to keep our movement growing?"
