Are you a Catalytic Leader who is ready to plant a new church?

Are you a catalytic leader: someone who loves Jesus with all your heart, is a great communicator, and can get things done? Stadia has the honor of helping hundreds of great leaders like you start new churches. Stadia’s Planter Discovery Process guides you through a comprehensive journey of assessment, interviewing, reflecting, and expert input about how your strengths can best be leveraged for church planting leadership. We will help you discern how God could use you to start a church that transforms the next generation and beyond.

“There are four phases of church planting: calling, preparation, launch, and growth. If you skip any phase, you’ll get into trouble. Many guys foolishly jump in without strategy, coaching, and training. Stadia helps at each phase.”

“Stadia coaches, project managers, and staff provide vital support for church planters. They have a wealth of experience in what it takes to launch healthy churches and provide critical assistance when it is needed most.”

Brian McKee

City of Light Church, Milwaukee, WI/2016

“I teach in my church. I disciple women. I sing. I am doing things I never saw myself doing because the voices in Stadia’s Bloom ministry have poured into me to lead.”

Restore Church, Silver Spring, MD/2012
