Partner with Stadia to Plant Churches in Under-Resourced Neighborhoods

Under-resourced neighborhoods in cities across the U.S. need new churches! You can help by investing in a powerful church planting partnership between Stadia and World Impact.

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 skills for people in these communities.
