Global Church Plant Updates

Canyon Ridge + Stadia + Compassion International
Read Church Plant Updates

Stadia plants churches that intentionally care for children.

We partner and support church planting movements, congregations and individuals around the globe, always deploying indigenous leaders outside the U.S. We work directly with an established local church partner or ministry that cares for children strategically and intentionally. When that church has the vision and capacity to plant a daughter church or collaborate with others to do so, Stadia brings resources to help. Once Stadia has the funds, the work begins. In Latin America, a new church hosts a Compassion International Child Development Center and serves 200 children with hot meals, clean water, and opportunities to learn and grow. Many parents begin to participate with the church and the community has high regard for the church leadership. In other contexts around our 17 countries, other needs are met, always with children in mind. With your help, we’re on the way to the day when every child has a church.

Global Church Planting

Friend of Stadia and fellow partner in global church planting, Aaron Brockett, describes the life-changing process of planting global churches in Latin America with Stadia & Compassion International.
