Amplify your impact — Find authentic relationships and accessible resources to help you thrive in church planting

We know what it takes
to start a church…

Over the last decade we’ve helped over 1,400 women find authentic relationships and access practical resources. Our director, Heidy Tandy, is a church planter, too—and she has a message for you as you consider joining the Bloom Community.

Don’t Plant Alone

Starting a new church is a journey. Being a woman in the church planting world comes with its own set of unique challenges. Bloom is a ministry of Stadia Church Planting that helps provide women with the relationships and practical resources they need to thrive ― no matter their role of responsibility.
