Stadia’s mission is to plant churches that intentionally care for children – and we won’t stop until every child has a church!

Our Values

It’s your vision, too – to see a world where every child has a local church.

Your pursuit of that vision continues to make it possible for Stadia to serve church planters who start churches that intentionally care for children.

Since church planting remains the most effective way to reach people with the Good News of Jesus Christ, we have spent time focusing on the “every” part of our joint vision. It has revealed a crucial need to accelerate new church planting at an unprecedented rate. 

Our commitment to collaborating with as many partners and planters as possible is stronger than ever. In 2020, Stadia will continue to offer its services with an open hand, in bold faith that together with you, MORE & BETTER churches will continue to be planted both here in the United States and abroad.


Meaningful relationships are the foundation of all great partnerships. Our relationships with church planters, partners, and other organizations are of utmost importance because they point to the most valuable relationship of all – our relationship with Jesus Christ. When we all work together in service of that relationship, we advance the Kingdom, together.


There are eight billion people in the world who need to know Jesus. It is imperative that we work with urgency to ensure that there are local churches where each one of those people can encounter the grace and love of Jesus Christ.


Everything that is done for the Kingdom of God should make a positive impact on the world. We value partnerships with planters and organizations who work to understand their local contexts and meet the felt needs of the people in those areas. These high-impact partners help Stadia offer services that will truly make a difference in the world.


Children are close to the heart of God, so they are close to the heart of Stadia. Since the majority of those who make a decision to follow Jesus do so before the age of 18, it is vital that new churches reach the hearts of our children. Stadia partners with planters and organizations that start churches where children and adults can encounter the love of God.


New life in Jesus is the greatest gift any person will ever receive, and it deserves to be celebrated! We value the art of celebration, naming the many ways we’ve seen Jesus work powerfully in and through His people and church planting. If Heaven is having a party, we should, too!
