Welcome to MI Middle Tennessee!

Mission Increase (MI) Middle Tennessee is a community of Christian ministries working to implement a biblical approach to fundraising to grow and more fully-achieve their God-given missions. What do we want FOR Tennessee as a result? An “overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.” (2 Corinthians 9:12-NIV)

Funded by givers from this community, MI Tennessee is able to offer teaching, coaching, consulting, and even matching grants, all at no cost to ministries. Together, givers and ministries are leveraging God’s resources to transform our communities. We invite you to join us!
