William Jessup University Gives Back to Promote Church Growth, Student Scholarships

William Jessup University Gives Back to Promote Church Growth, Student Scholarships

ROCKLIN, Calif. – William Jessup University, the greater Sacramento region’s only residential four-year university, recently presented Stadia, one of the largest church planting organizations in the world, a check for $40,000.

The growing university welcomed Stadia’s President, Greg Nettle, who addressed the WJU student body during the memorable chapel service.

“I’m thankful for our partnership in church planting because throughout the United States and around the world, the fact remains the same that new church planting is the single most effective way for reaching people who are far away from Jesus,” Nettle said.

Demonstrating Jessup’s mission to partner with the church, President John Jackson and Director of Church Relations, Jim Jessup proudly presented Nettle the check. The gift represents 5 percent of the funds received by WJU resulting from the closure of a former partner church.
