Tim Keller Says ‘He Is Ready To See Jesus’ Amid Hospice Care

Tim Keller Says ‘He is ready to see Jesus’ amid Hospice Care due to complications from pancreatic cancer treatment.

The founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church, who was hospitalized over complications from cancer treatment has been discharged from the hospital and moved to a hospice. He however made known while  receiving  hospice care at home that he is “ready to see Jesus.”

This was disclosed in a Thursday Facebook update by his son Michael Keller.

“Today, Dad is being discharged from the hospital to receive hospice care at home. Over the past few days, he has asked us to pray with him often. He expressed many times through prayer his desire to go home to be with Jesus, Michael wrote.

Michael Further noted the family is heartbroken knowing that Keller is approaching the end of his life. “His family is very sad because we all wanted more time, but we know he has very little at this point.” He went on to quote the prayer his father said earlier this week.

“I’m thankful for all the people who’ve prayed for me over the years. I’m thankful for my family, that loves me. I’m thankful for the time God has given me, but I’m ready to see Jesus. I can’t wait to see Jesus. Send me home.”

Pastor Keller was first diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer in May 2020. He underwent a series of chemotherapy and immunotherapy at National Institute for Health in Bethesda.

In June 2021 however, Keller announced that 99% of the tumor have been successfully eradicated. He announced in March that he would be repeating immunotherapy after new tumors developed.

“new tumors have developed. They are unfortunately in some fairly inconvenient places, so the doctors encouraged us to go through the treatment again, he wrote.
