We believe that the local church is the primary way God chooses to move on the earth. Planting new churches is a one of the best ways to reach the people in a community that haven’t heard the good news of Jesus.
We exist to reach the more than 4,000 people in McCulloch County that have no church affiliation.
The vigorous, continual planting of new congregations is the single most crucial strategy for the numerical growth of the Body of Christ in any city, and the continual corporate renewal and revival of the existing churches in a city.
– Tim Keller
Redeemer Church has been in the making for the past three years; it has been prayed for, dreamt of, and strategized over by a core team of families in Brady, Texas. We have been patient with the process because we desperately wanted God at the helm, and not just our ideas. We have never been a group that is opposed to the local churches in Brady, but just a group that has explored the possibility of a different kind of church to bring glory to God in Brady and the surrounding areas.
Consumed by a desire to see Brady people fall in love with Jesus and to become disciples, the church planter, Paden Behrens, felt the need for more training. He was sent by the core team to Redeemer Church in Lubbock for a residency in church planting.
In June 2014, Paden was be affirmed by the Pastor and the Elders as an ordained minister and commissioned out to be a pastor in Brady. Redeemer Brady belongs to the Acts 29 network, a band more than 500 churches which, for the sake of Jesus and the gospel, plant new churches around the world.
On September 28, 2014 we held our first public service and in the following weeks began four gospel community groups. The Lord has blessed us with growth, and we baptized 14 in the San Saba River in the spring of 2015. We’ve been privileged to already be able to help plant other churches, including an upcoming one in Stillwater, OK.
As God continues to prove faithful to His church, we look forward to what He will do next.
