Grace to the City in Hong Kong


In March of this year, more than 1500 pastors and church leaders from around China gathered at Queen Elizabeth Stadium in Hong Kong for a conference called Grace to the City Convention. The keynote speaker was Dr. Timothy Keller, of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City who, with the assistance of a phenomenal interpreter, spoke on the themes of grace, contextualization, integration, and movement. In addition, the participants heard four pastors from four different areas of China give their perspectives on these themes. A team of musicians from Harbin led the worship.

China Partnership, the organizer of the conference, has posted some video clips of the conference on their YouTube channel, including this Highlights Slideshow (with "In Christ Alone" being sung in Chinese):

The channel also includes a recap video, as well as conversations with Tim Keller about his thoughts on the conference.

The Chinese website Jidu123 () has posted all four of Dr. Keller's messages on their Youku Channel. (Youku is the main Chinese video sharing site.)
