The Stadia Summit

Jan 15, 2019

The Stadia Summit is an event you don’t want to miss. The first time I went to a Stadia Summit was about a year before I joined the team. I was the Executive Pastor of a four-year old church in Maryland, and suddenly, I found myself making connections with staff members at churches all over the country. Many of those relationships are now some of the most important that I have as they support me in my ministry and provide an excellent sounding board for new ideas.

Every year, we work really hard to make the Stadia Summit the best yet, and this year is no different. We will continue our tradition of providing you content that differs from what you will hear on stage at Exponential. We want to encourage you and your team and give you some tools that will help you be healthy for the long haul in church leadership. Additionally, we are going to provide you with lots of opportunities to connect with other church leaders and hopefully form life-long relationships that fuel you, your family, your team, and your church.

At 2019’s Stadia Summit, we will have Albert Tate kick things off. His real-life church planting experience and funny, down-to-earth style of communicating is sure to spark conversations amongst your team and with other teams. We are also going to have some breakout sessions to address some specific topics. We will have a breakout session for pre-launch planters, a breakout session for churches in the first ten years of the church, and a breakout session to talk about First Party Data, Big Data, and how your church could be using it.

After some workshops in the morning, Stadia will provide an excellent lunch, and after lunch, we are going to have fun. We will have people chilling by the pool, we will have some games to challenge other churches in (I’ll be rooting for the Maryland churches), and we may even have massage chairs!

Like I said, you don’t want to miss this.

Since 2003, Matt has been involved as a volunteer leader and/or staff member in the early stages of four church plants. Two of these churches benefited from Stadia, so he has experienced first-hand how partnering with Stadia benefits churches. Matt has his MBA and has worked in project management in the medical research and development field. Previously Matt has served Stadia as the Director of Global Church Planting and Operations Executive. His passion is to maximize church planting through leadership and bringing clarity to the leaders he serves.
