Updates From Andrea's Everest Basecamp Trek

Every child matters.

In 2021 Stadia will help plant more than 500 new churches that intentionally care for children throughout the United States and around the world. In 2022, we anticipate that number climbing to 800 new churches. In the challenging times that the world is facing, it is difficult to even imagine the life and community transformation that these new churches will bring, and the Hope that is waiting for thousands and thousands of children and families.

On May 11th, I will be embarking on a journey with 8 other leaders, a journey that is designed to bring awareness and provide resources to bring that hope to everyone who needs it. Each leader has committed to raising $50,000+ with a total goal of $500,000 to plant churches that intentionally care for children.  Through our journey, my prayer is that you will be inspired to make a high-impact difference through new church planting. I pray that you will become fully aware of the need for the hope of Jesus to be shared throughout the world, and that you will invest by providing resources to make sure that every child on the planet has a church!

Our team of 9 will be trekking more than 50 miles through the mountains of Nepal to Mount Everest climbing basecamp. At times we will be ascending to nearly 19,000 feet above sea level. Nighttime temperatures will reach -35 degrees Fahrenheit. Why are we doing this crazy thing? Because every child matters!

Here’s what I’m asking you to do:

    1. Pray. For our team as we trek and for the children around the world that will be hearing the Good News of Jesus for the very first time.
    2. Follow. Please engage with the videos and social media posts we share throughout our trek—journey with us. Follow as God raises your awareness of the needs of children around the world—what is he inviting you to do?
    3. Invest. Give generously to ensure that planting 550 new churches in 2021 and 800 new churches in 2022 can happen. It does not happen without you!

Reflections From the Climb

Waiting

Thank you for your generosity and partnership in bringing the hope of Jesus to children around the globe through new churches!  As you know, I planned to trek to Everest Basecamp this fall to raise awareness and support for this life-changing work.  Due to...

Hard Work Produces Fruit

I have been working out consistently since I was 21. Previous to that I had not spent much time figuring out how to care for my body. A spark went off in me when I was 20 and I started watching what I ate and started exercising regularly for the first time. I lost 55...

Endurance

98 days. In 98 days I'll be getting on a plane headed for Nepal. Climbing Everest Base Camp is not something I originally had on my bucket list, but when the opportunity, with mission behind it, presented itself, it was quickly added.  I'm one for adventure, for...

A New Journey

We've heard it said many times, "it's less about the destination, as it is about the journey." I've found this to be true in almost every area of life. Keeping this mindset helps me to stay patient on a long journey, though there is much preparation and time before...
