I hope your holiday season is off to a great start!
Thank you for joining me, the Stadia team, and thousands of others in prayer. The power of God is unleashed through the prayers of God’s people!
This holiday season please join me in praying for our church planters and their new church starts, that people will come like never before to hear the good news of Jesus Christ. The holiday season is one of those times of year that people are more likely to think about eternal things, to think about generosity than ever before—please join me in praying that resources would be unleashed by God’s people into these new churches and into God’s kingdom.
Please also join me in praying for good rest for these church planters and for them to have a blessed holiday season with their church family.
And finally, please join me in praying for children around the world to find the hope of Jesus through these new churches.
We won’t stop praying until every child has a church,
It’s hard to believe we are already headed into the holiday season. One Holiday that you may not be aware of is World Children’s Day which is celebrated November 20th. As you know, Stadia’s vision is for every child to have a church and 85% of people who make a decision a follow Jesus do so before the age of 18. It’s not that all people don’t matter, it’s simply that children are very close to the heart of God.
So, this month, please join me in praying for children – children in your own family; children in your neighborhood; children in your local church. Would you especially pray for the two billion children around the world, the next generation, who don’t know Jesus and don’t have access to the Gospel through a local church. That’s what we are all about at Stadia, bringing the hope of Jesus to the next generation by starting thriving, growing, multiplying churches that intentionally and strategically care for the next generation.
This holiday season, add November 20th to your calendar, World Children’s Day. And we won’t stop praying until every child has a church!
Thank you for joining me in praying for Stadia, our church planters around the world, and all that God is doing to advance his Kingdom.
Fall reminds us that things come to a close so that in the spring they can be rebirthed. Often, we need to be reminded that death isn’t the end, and that hope is in the resurrection – the hope that Jesus gives us. October is national family month. It reminds us that marriages that might be in trouble have the opportunity to rebirth, the opportunity to have the new hope of Jesus.
This month please join me in praying for all of our church planters throughout the United States and around the world, and specifically for the marriages of our married church planters. Please pray that God would protect their marriages. That they would have flourishing, thriving, healthy marriages that reflect the bride of Christ, the relationship he wants us to represent in marriage.
We won’t stop praying, and this month we won’t stop praying for the marriages of our church planters, until every child has a church!
It’s difficult to believe that fall is already upon us, and with that Stadia has a very special day approaching, Go the Extra Mile day. It’s a day where we hope people will invest resources to help start new churches throughout the United States and around the world.
It’s called Go the Extra Mile because in Matthew 5:41 Jesus says, if someone asks you to go one mile, don’t just go one mile with them, go the extra mile. That is what we are doing at Stadia, going the extra mile. Our Go the Extra Mile goal is to raise $350,000 to start new thriving, growing, multiplying churches for the next generation. I would love for you to pray for that day, September 17th.
