Our Story

Redemption Hill Church is a Christian church located in Medford, MA. Believe it or not, our story will be forever linked with the Boston Red Sox. On August 2nd, 2005, our lead pastor, Tanner Turley, a card-carrying member of Red Sox Nation, visited Boston and Fenway Park for the first time. After a Sox win, a walk down Newbury Street, and some time in the Boston Common, he began envisioning the possibility of starting a new church in Greater Boston. That possibility became a reality on April 10, 2011.

Since then God has built an amazing group of ordinary people doing extraordinary things empowered by what Jesus has done for us. We always say we want RHC to be a thumbprint of Medford and our surrounding communities, and we have been greatly encouraged to see God bring people from diverse ethnic, socioeconomic, generational, and academic backgrounds. Redemption Hill includes people who have been following Jesus for many years, some new to the journey of faith, and others exploring Christianity for the first time. No matter who you are or where you’ve been, we want you to join us!

Our desire to welcome and serve all people is reflected in our church name. “Redemption Hill” highlights the climax of God’s redemptive story in the Bible where God displayed his stunning love and radical grace to all people on a hill outside of Jerusalem through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Two thousand years later, we desire to be a community of people who declare and display the redemption found in Jesus by loving God and those around us. It is amazing to watch people take the small story of their life and connect to God’s greater story of freedom, hope, and love.
