Event Information

Are you struggling with a lack of resources to do the work God’s called you to? God’s given your organization 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 country learn a better way to raise money.

Thanks to generous givers, a new Mission Increase community is coming to Northwest Ohio at no cost to you! We’ll provide you with a coach, community and a collection of Biblically-based resources to help you experience fundraising as a joyful calling.
