All Stadia church-planting couples and teams participate in a week-long training called “Boot Camp.” Here we teach essential church-planting principles to create a solid start that will last for the long haul.
Every church-planting missionary needs these skills to fuel their journey:
- Understanding the unique context of their community, and how the gifts, talents and passion of their team mesh to find a "ministry sweet spot."
- Building a solid base of financial supporters and intercessors to surround and support them as they minister on the front-lines of life and community transformation.
- Discipling pre-Christians, believers, and leaders to become disciple-makers, particularly in the pre-launch period before the church's first public worship gathering.
- The importance of personal and family soul care, recognizing that God wants to work not only through the church planter, but also in the church planter.
From there, we help church planters clarify the unique shape of the ministry to which God has called them. We equip you with the tools to form and articulate clearly your church’s distinctive mission, vision, and values and provide you with proven principles of evangelism, community involvement, and discipleship.
Stadia helps plant churches that intentionally care for children. #everychildhasachurch
