Your Impact is Multiplying!

Everyday, churches are working to reach the lost and hurting. You have an important part in that. Your investment is equipping new churches to thrive, grow, and multiply and in turn those churches are helping people experience the transformative love of Jesus. Throughout the past few weeks our world has been literally shaken. As natural disasters and devastation have wreaked havoc on lives across the globe, churches are stepping up and being the hands and feet of Jesus. A church YOU helped start that has stepped up is The Refinery Church.

Located in Temecula Valley, California, The Refinery Church has been championing their value of stewardship by responding to the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria. They define stewardship as this, “We create more than we consume by managing our time, talents and treasure with wisdom and God-honoring risk.”

“As you know, parts of Turkey and Syria have been devastated by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake and aftershocks leaving over 36,000 dead and millions homeless and seeking refuge. We’re partnering with Church of God Ministries to deliver immediate relief and invest in long-term restoration efforts in Syria, as they are receiving much less aid from the international community due to security risks. Our goal is to provide blankets, food, medical care, housing assistance, and group therapy for 500 Syrian refugees dealing with fear, grief and trauma.” — The Refinery Church

As they offer prayers and work to raise funds to support the overwhelming needs in Turkey and Syria, know that you are a part of this story too. Thank you for helping start new churches, like The Refinery Church, that are quick to respond to people in need with love and compassion. You are making Kingdom impact that will multiply for years and generations to come. We are so honored to do this work with you.

Until every child has a church,

Thank You,

February 2023

As we find ourselves another month into the new year, we’ve settled into the comfort of familiar routines. However, we still wait patiently, expectant for all that God will do this year. Together, we are helping start churches all over the world; currently in 17 countries over 4 continents. We wonder, what further places will God take us this year?

This month, we are joyfully celebrating the completion of a new church in Bolivia! Their community gathered weekly and shared the hope of Jesus with families that continued to attend even through construction. They are a thriving community who not only care intentionally for children, but take care of senior citizens with weekly prayer visits and even hosted a camp!

Through the specific investment of a partner like you, many lives in Bolivia are being transformed with the truth and grace of Jesus. We are so thankful for your generosity and we are honored to help you start new churches. We praise God for using every part of “the body” to make a difference in the world, and feel encouraged to keep going.

We won’t stop until every child, everywhere, has a church!

Thank You,
Greg Nettle | President of Stadia

January 2023

2022 brought much of the world back to lives and routines that were familiar before the global pandemic. Communities regularly gathered, people hugged again, families visited their loved ones. As we enter a new year, we look back and are reminded of so many leaders that you helped start thriving, growing, multiplying churches. This last year, you helped start over 200 new churches. Since 2003, Stadia and our generous investors have helped start 1,877 churches that intentionally care for the next generation. We are thrilled to be celebrating our 20th anniversary in 2023 and continue in our mission so that every child, everywhere, has a church.   Thank you for your faithful support and partnership! We pray that your new year is full of opportunities to share the love and light of Jesus with the world. We thank God for you and we look forward to all the new leaders and new churches that this new year will bring! Thank You,
Greg Nettle | President of Stadia

December 2022

The holidays are upon us! ‘Tis the season where many share meals with loved ones, practice gratitude, and cheerfully celebrate. We are among them, and you are on our list of people we are thanking God for!

It is an honor to help start new churches with you, and we want to thank you for your generous investment. You are helping start new churches by funding resources like Stadia’s Discovery Center, Project Management services, Essential Training, Cohorts & Coaching, Post Launch Care, and even more that new and current church leaders need access to in order to launch and lead thriving, growing, multiplying churches! Because of you, the people who are called to start new churches can find the resources and relationships they need. They are able to engage cities and multiply hope further than we could alone!

You have helped people like Loren and Josh start City Church in Griffin, Georgia and make an impact in their community. Loren and Josh were able to access the resources they needed to discern their calling then start a new church. Today, City Church is a local advocate and is impacting the next generation through intentionally caring for them. City Church is for Jesus, for all people, and for their city. And with help from your generous investment, Josh and Loren are thriving.

Thank you for helping start new churches! We hope your holiday season is full of joy and celebration—just like ours! Please know that we are praising God for you, and we are looking forward to the continued impact we will have together the rest of this season and into the new year. We won’t stop until every child, everywhere, has a church!

Thank You,
Greg Nettle, President of Stadia
