Event Information

Healthy champion communities can be strong platforms for fundraising, acquiring new champions, and discipling God's people. It is in community that wounds are healed, victories are celebrated, outsiders become insiders, resources are provided, and needs are met. This kind of change is not limited to the communities of people we serve. Champion communities can, and should, experience this kind of transformation too!

Gather with your peers at this Mission Increase workshop to learn how micro-events can leverage existing relationships to foster communities and multiply your efforts in the causes of Christ.


  • Understand the biblical concept of community
  • Practice planning micro-events that incorporate basic principles
  • Identify champions who can host micro-events

This workshop will benefit your team, and everyone involved in designing events and coaching your champions. Register today!
