One of our commitments here at Redemption Hill is to be a church that plants churches. Our intention is to see Gospel-Centered, Grace-Driven, and Mission-Minded church communities cultivated throughout the greater Richmond area and the entire region. A portion of our budget has been designated to support this goal, we are committed to pray for it and about fulfilling this goal, and our people are committed to the mission of making it a reality.
To assist us in this process, we have partnered with the Acts29 church-planting network. A29 is a network of like-minded church planters who partner together and assist one another in planting churches throughout the world.
Every year we partner with like-minded church plants through our prayers, finances, and sometimes our people. We set aside just over 10% of our regular income for the work of local and international missions. These resources have allowed us to help plant the following churches:
When Redemption Hill first began, the following churches generously partnered with us to help make this church a reality. We are so grateful for their partnership in the Gospel then and to this day.

This is an eyebrow raising statement. But to those who have done any study at all, it is not even controversial.” Tim Keller, Why Plant Churches. Download full article (pdf)
