Event Information

Are you struggling with a lack of resources to do the work God’s called you to? God’s given your organisation a big vision for impact, yet it can be frustrating to not know where to find the money or the people to do the work. But it doesn’t have to be hard any longer.  

For over two decades, Mission Increase (MI) has been helping ministry leaders across the United States learn a better way to raise money.  

Thanks to generous givers, Mission Increase (MI) is coming to the UK! We’ll provide you with a coach, community and a collection of Biblically-based resources to help you experience fundraising as a joyful calling, all offered at no cost to you. Visit our website at to learn more. 

Please register to join us for our upcoming MI United Kingdom Community Launch Event:

11:00 AM-1:00 PM – Workshop, stay after for Refreshments


At this Launch workshop, you’ll meet the new Mission Increase United Kingdom Team: National Director Mark Markiewicz, Area Director Lorne Campbell, and Director of Operations Mark Plummer. This team is excited to present a Biblical model of fundraising with the power to grow your ministry and your givers.

  • Practice skills to be used in meaningful one-on-one conversations with givers  
  • Discover new ways of inviting more people into your work 
  • Be resourced for developing a case for support

This workshop — along with all future quarterly workshops, coaching, and consulting — will be offered at no cost to ministries in your community thanks to generous givers.
