MI is coming to San Diego!
Helping our nonprofits grow by offering – at no cost to them – teaching and coaching rooted in a biblical approach to fundraising, strategic planning & leadership.
We know that God has given your nonprofit a huge vision for impact, but we also know that the people, resources and time sometimes run out before the vision does! Since 1999, Mission Increase (MI) has been helping nonprofit leaders and organizations across the country thrive.
Come join us to learn more at our MI San Diego launch event!

- 8:30 - 9:00 AM Sign-in / breakfast
- 9:00 – 11:30 AM Workshop

In this workshop, Nic Gilmour, our new Area Director for MI SAN, will present a biblical model of fundraising and leadership to grow you, your nonprofit and the champions who will take up your cause.
At the workshop we will:
- Practice skills to be used to foster meaningful engagement with champions, advocates, partners and collaborators.
- Discover new ways of inviting others into the cause.
- Be resourced to begin developing a robust and practical ‘case for support’
- Network with San Diego nonprofit leaders
- Engage with MI SAN to access more leadership and fundraising tools, join a learning-community, and access matching grants.
Breakfast and workshop materials are provided. This workshop will speak to your entire team, so invite board members, staff and volunteers – whoever is interested in hearing a fresh approach to championing your cause. The workshop — along with all future quarterly workshops and coaching — is offered at no cost to nonprofits in San Diego thanks to generous givers in our community.
MI SAN: supporting, encouraging & empowering leaders who change the world!
Featuring - Nic Gilmour
Area Director, MI San Diego
Having grown up in Western Australia, and now finding himself in North County San Diego, Nic Gilmour counts it a privilege to serve as the Area Director for Mission Increase San Diego. He has been a follower of Jesus since 1984, partnered with the incredible V since 1993, and dad to supa-kiddos Mo, Tino and Evey for enough time to know that fathering is better – and far more exacting – than he ever could've dreamed. He coaches (rugby & org health), mentors (people who'll far exceed him), surfs (badly but often), and eats pizza (ok, too much). To V’s dismay, he doesn't like kale. At all. Due to a misspent youth, he somehow ended up with degrees in history & literature, law, leadership and organizational dynamics, and practical theology – including a masters from Fuller and a doctorate from Gordon-Conwell. Since moving to SoCal in 2013, at North Coast Calvary (his spiritual home), Mission Increase (his vocational home), and Oceanside (his beach-home), Nic spends much of his time shepherding apostolic types – ‘those who’ll take on hell with a squirt gun.’ Through life, community and hard-lessons (typically involving God kindly giving Nic a brick to the head) he's more convinced now than ever that the only worthwhile spirituality is one with boots on, that walks.
