Father, I know that the Presidency of Stadia is a sacred entrustment from you. I pray that I will invest this trust wisely. May you and you alone receive glory, all glory, both now and forever.
I thank-you for allowing me to be part of a church like RiverTree for the past 22 years and in the years to come. For the faithfulness of your people that has allowed this new partnership to come to pass. I celebrate all that you have done and will do in and through your people.
I pray that you will enable me to lead faithfully, boldly and humbly.
I believe with all my heart that you desire more from your church in the United States of America. May you use us as a catalyst of change that brings light and hope to all the peoples of the world. Protect us as we move forward against the powers of darkness. Empower us as we fight for the lives of children at risk. Give us great vision to see beyond the things of this world to a world where your Kingdom reigns. A Kingdom in which thousands of new churches unite together to transform lives and communities in Jesus’ name.
Father, I ask for a generous spirit to bless as we have been blessed. I ask for a spirit of collaboration where it matters not who gets the credit—where only the name of Jesus is lifted. I ask for the ability to live an authentic life, a life that echoes the Apostle Paul, “Follow me as I follow Christ.” I ask for a sense of urgency . . . urgency to see millions more in Heaven both now and forever.
In Jesus’ name,
My prayer is for God to bless you, your family, Rivertree and your new journey as president of Stadia.
Lord, those of us who are part of the Stadia team are eternally grateful for the leadership gift you have bestowed upon us in the form of your man, Greg Nettle. We give you thanks for his vision, passion, his over-the-top great wife and children, the community of faith called Rivertree that surrounds him and unashamedly deploys him to serve freely the church universal through Stadia–KSP–Synergy, the women and men leaders of Rivertree who are now our partners in the gospel, the legacy of Stadia built by Marcus Bigelow and the leaders of Northern California, and the current Stadia team that has served way beyond the call to duty.
On a personal level I give you thanks for my good friend Greg. I look forward to following and embracing his leadership and serving alongside him to make it hard to go to hell wherever there is a Stadia community of faith. Lord we await your marching orders…
