One of Redeemer's core philosophies and driving values is to be a church-planting church. To that end, Redeemer Church is sending Pastor Matt Joiner to plant a new church, Redeemer South.

Redeemer South will launch April 16, 2023 at Redeemer Church's original location (Windsor Rd) with the goal of finding a new location by September. Redeemer South plans to be autonomous within several years.

Over the past five years, Pastor Matt has served as Associate Pastor of Kids as well as Life Groups and Missions. Also during this time, he has started the groundwork for a free biblical counseling center that will reach the community. The training of counselors will continue at both churches.
