San Francisco is arguably one of the greatest cities in the world. Due to the banking and tech industries, the Bay Area was recently listed as one of the wealthiest areas on the planet. It is considered to be one of the three most influential cities in the U.S. And, if you have ever visited, it is virtually unsurpassed in beauty, cuisine and diversity.
San Francisco is also arguably one of the greatest cities of opportunity in the world. Certainly for education, employment and innovation. But also for new expressions of the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Less than 3% of the Bay Area’s 8 million people are involved with a local church in any meaningful way (“involved” is defined as having touch with a local church once every six weeks—a very low standard.).
Stadia is meeting with church leaders, business leaders, followers of Jesus in every domain to help Transform the Bay for Christ. Planting new churches remains the single most effective way to reach people with the Good News of Jesus Christ. Planting new churches that intentionally care for children is unparalleled in not only reaching people but transforming their lives and communities both now and for eternity.
We are praying that a great city like San Francisco will become a great opportunity to be a gateway to transform the world for Jesus Christ!
