Maturity is the mission. And since none of us have arrived, there is always room for growth! 

Maybe you have been a christian for decades and you want to deepen your faith. Maybe you want to be a church leader. Maybe you are a new christian. Maybe you want to be a pastor or church planter. Maybe you are new to Redeemer. Maybe you are a college student who is eager to grow. Maybe you want to lead or host a Gospel Community. Or, maybe you just want “more”. 

Check out one of the three options below to see what your clear next step could be.
