Cities across the U.S. need new churches.

You can help by investing in a powerful church planting partnership between Stadia and World Impact. America’s inner cities are unreached mission fields, with millions who have not heard the gospel. Most churches in the inner city are not culturally-conducive to the poor who live in the neighborhoods. Churches need to be planted where the poor can serve in leadership.

World Impact has been committed to evangelism, discipleship, and indigenous leadership development among the urban poor for over 40 years. As the national training arm for World Impact, The Urban Ministry Institute (TUMI) provides seminary-level education and urban ministry 

In 2017, Stadia and World Impacted partnered to start new churches in cities like Los Angeles, San Diego, Queens, Newark, and Atlanta. We are seeking out churches and partners who will commit $15,000 to plant each of these churches.

Interview with Bob Engel of World Impact

A group of urban leaders are eager to be equipped and released to start churches among the urban poor. But they need your help! Hear more from World Impact’s Bob Engel about this powerful church planting partnership and how you can experience its potential first-hand.

God is at work in the city! Come and spend time with people in urban settings that desperately need the Good News of Jesus. This is a great opportunity for leaders with a vision for church planting to partner in powerful ways to change generations to come. Hear more from Stadia’s Jeff Bennett and World Impact’s Bob Engel in the video below.

Vision Trips

You can have a front row seat.

Stadia wants to give you a front row view of how we’re partnering to plant churches in under-resourced neighborhoods of U.S. cities. Come spend time with us and World Impact as we experience what God is doing through these churches. Get an up-close perspective of how the partnership works and how you can join us!

To make these Under-Resourced Neighborhood Church Planting Vision Trips as accessible as possible, we’re offering two options, one on each coast. We’ll cover your food and accommodations; you’ll just need to get yourself there.

During these Vision Trips, you will:

  • Get to know World Impact church planters as well as Bob Engel, National Director of Church Planting for World Impact. Spend time learning how God is using Stadia and World Impact to reach under-resourced cities.
  • Walk the communities where Stadia and World Impact will be planting future churches.
  • From One World Trade Center (NYC) and Griffith Observatory (LA), you’ll hear World Impact and Stadia’s vision to transform these communities for Christ.
