More About Michael

Michael Johnson serves as the Area Director for Mission Increase Colorado. He gets fired up about connecting with every type of person and, in particular, he loves to connect with ministry leaders, learning their stories and equipping them to make a greater impact for Christ. His 25 years in ministry, business, and education have prepared him to do just that. For 12 years, Michael served as Executive Director of Martin County Youth for Christ. During that time, he pioneered a thriving ministry, aided by a strong focus on board development and relational fundraising. He launched an innovative year-end capital campaign that is still in use today. The work that God continues to do in that community gives Michael and his family great joy. Michael and his family call Colorado Springs their home.

Welcome to MI Colorado!

Mission Increase (MI) Colorado 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 Colorado as a result? An “overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.” (2 Corinthians 9:12-NIV)

Funded by givers from this community, MI Colorado 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!
