Austin – A Great City with Great Need
Austin is one of the fastest growing cities in America. Over the last 10 years the greater Austin area has grown by 50,000 people every year. Additionally, the 2000 U.S. Census indicated that Austin only has 4.75 churches for every 10,000 people (far below the national average of 12 churches for every 10,000 people). In order to simply maintain the same ratio of churches to the population, we need to plant almost 23 churches per year, and continually staff the already planted churches. Where are these trained pastors going to come from? It is with this need in mind that God has providentially brought Redeemer Seminary to Austin.
