Every Child Matters: Mark’s Trek
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 2022, 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+, for 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:
- 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.
- 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?
- 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!
