Nathan & Joy Hawkins
Missiological research reveals that (1) starting new churches is the most effective form of evangelism, and (2) 85 percent of people who make a commitment to Jesus do so between the ages of 4 and 14. Therefore, Stadia helps churches start and supports new churches that intentionally care for children, both in the United States and internationally. Nathan’s ministry with Stadia is serving as a catalyst for partners—pastors, churches, and fellow ministry leaders. He also helps develop and nurture new churches and church-planting teams, networks,and movements. He travels extensively and is dedicated to building bridges across cultural and denominational divides for the sake of the Gospel.
Praise: 52 new churches were launched, and over 4,000 children were sponsored in 2015!
Prayer: For health and protection for our family, especially as Nathan travels. Prayer: Unity in the body of Christ for the sake of collaboration in church planting.
