the gotham fellowship

The Gotham Fellowship is a nine-month learning community designed to broaden your understanding of and deepen your connection to God’s redemptive work by applying theology, spiritual practices, and cultural renewal to your work, your relationships, and New York City.

Each class includes fellows from diverse professional and personal backgrounds. Gotham provides three foundational elements needed for integration of faith and work: theological training, spiritual and personal development, and community formation.

We believe the Gotham Fellowship can have a transformative impact on every person at Redeemer West Side, regardless of their vocation. Through the program we explore how our everyday work plays a part in God’s greater call on our life, growing as a disciple, as well as seeing and pursuing human flourishing in our communities. As we all seek to love our neighbors and heal our city, both individually and as a church, Gotham opens our eyes to how we can view our daily work as a means of ministry and not just a way to pay the bills.

The Gotham Fellowship begins Labor Day Weekend and finishes the weekend before Memorial Day Weekend.

christianity and progressive social justice

Justice. Equality. Diversity. Compassion. What does the Bible have to say about all these things?

From a historical perspective, the Christian faith is the origin and source of so many progressive values today. So Christians should be the greatest champions of these values. At the same time, there are some key ways that the gospel’s vision of human flourishing conflicts with the secular vision. This is not because Jesus wants to keep us from true fulfillment; rather, it’s because Jesus is calling us to something deeper and far better.

Join us for this five-week class as we seek to disentangle biblical views on justice from the secular progressive view on matters like race, sex, and gender. As we see where the two visions overlap and where they differ, we begin to catch a glimpse of the better story that the gospel invites us into. We hope you will leave with greater wisdom and compassion as you navigate these important matters in your own life and with the people you care about.
