Katherine Leary Alsdorf

Currently, Katherine is leading Redeemer City to City’s efforts to establish faith and work ministries to support church planting and city renewal activities around the globe. Focused on equipping leaders in all vocations, the Global Faith and Work Collaborative will come along side churches – both pastors and congregants - to further the economic, cultural and spiritual renewal of their cities.

Katherine’s 25 years in the tech industry – in roles from researcher to organizational consultant to CEO – gave her a solid background in leadership and entrepreneurship. In 2002, Katherine led Redeemer in starting its Center for Faith & Work, creating ministries to equip, connect, and mobilize the Redeemer congregation to live out the gospel in every area of their work lives. This was done through Vocation Groups, Arts Ministries, an Entrepreneurship Initiative, the Gotham Fellowship, and numerous conferences, retreats, and classes.

In 2013 she turned over leadership of CFW and spent 5 years consulting with other churches around the country, helping them start church-based faith and work ministries. From 2015-18, she and her husband re-located to Raleigh NC to create the New City Fellows program through a multi-church partnership for city engagement and renewal.

 Katherine currently is adjunct faculty at Regent College in Vancouver, a board member of the Carver Project and the Theology of Work project, and on the Advisory Board of Made to Flourish. She has served on boards of Fellowship of the Performing Arts, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, and International Arts Movement. Katherine assisted Tim Keller in the writing of Every Good Endeavor.
