Everest Basecamp Trek

Invest Now!
 
When children have access to the local church, their future can be abundant.

For nearly 20 years, Stadia has had the privilege of helping people just like you start thriving, growing, multiplying churches for the next generation. New church leaders, existing church leaders, strategic partners, and generous investors have started over 1,800 churches all around the world since 2003 – but we know that there is still work to be done!

That’s why, on May 9th, Stadia’s President, Greg Nettle, and Stadia’s Director of Household Relationships, Andrea Wells, will join seven other leaders over 20 days in trekking over 50 miles to Mount Everest’s basecamp. Trekking Mount Everest may be a trip of a lifetime, but what if it could also introduce thousands of children to a life with Jesus? Our hope is that together, through The Stadia & Friends Everest Trek, we could raise $600,000 to helps start new churches that thrive, grow, and multiply for the next generation!

As our team of 9 begin their trek, we invite you to:

    1. Pray for their journey and
    2. Consider giving $27 right now.

Why $27? Because it only takes $27 for a church to start helping one child explore the hope of Jesus.

Your contribution to the Stadia & Friends Everest Trek will add to the incredible kingdom growth that so many have already been a part of by starting new churches. Let’s help more children experience the hope of Jesus through a new church – until the entire next generation has a church to call home!

A Somber Moment…

Our First Glimpse of Everest

What a day!  We spent 7 hours hiking and got our first glimpse of Everest through a break in the clouds!  It is a breathtaking display of God's creativity! In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him. Psalm 95:4

Who Does That?

Currently trekking over 50 miles in the Himalayas toward Everest Basecamp is a team who loves the vision of Stadia. They’re taking physical steps (up a mountain) to further the mission of making sure that every child, everywhere, has a church. But who does that… And...

Transition

Transition; a word that best describes my life right now.  I finished planning a wedding and got married (IT WAS AWESOME). I have moved into my husband’s, and now our, home; nesting, organizing, and decorating. I have started life as a wife and mother to 3 step, or...

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...
