About Stan Rodda

Hi, there! I wanted to take a second and introduce myself. My name is Stan Rodda and I am a disciple maker. My passion is to see people becoming more like Jesus and helping others do the same. I have been in full-time ministry for sixteen years and am a 4th generation pastor.

I met my wife, Misty Rodda, at Central Christian College of the Bible. That is also where I received my preaching degree in 2002. I have served at three churches since then.

  • Milan Christian Church, Milan, MO. - 2002-2004

  • Petersburg Church of Christ, Petersburg, IL. - 2004-2009

  • New Life Christian Church, Chantilly, VA. - 2009-Present

Since being at New Life I have helped to relaunch a multi-site campus, written small group curriculum for MORE and lead the volunteer team for Exponential. My prayer and dream for my campus is that we will take Western Prince William County as Kingdom territory. Releasing disciples who make disciples is my primary focus to help that become a reality.

My wife and I have three great kids; Grant, Ashton and Avary. We also have a Goldendoodle named Gwenny.

I host this website simply to write blogs, post periodic podcasts and share ministry content via my “Field Notes” email. My hope is to encourage and resource pastors and ministry leaders with practical ministry content and help them be more effective disciple makers for King Jesus. I manage a Facebook group for pastors and ministry leaders who love to ride motorcycles. Join us here. And recently I partnered with Renew.org as a contributing writer.

Thanks for stopping by the site. I would love to connect with you more. Social media links are at the bottom of the page.

Taking Kingdom Territory,

Stan Rodda
