Meet Trent Combs

Area Director for MI National

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

MI National serves at-large ministry leaders around the country who do not have a local MI community. Funded by givers intent on serving this group, MI National is able to offer teaching and coaching on the current topic being taught, all at no cost to ministries.

Beginning in October 2023, Mission Increase will be offering all MI National nonprofits an opportunity to take part in month-long virtual coaching cohorts. These cohorts will be led by Mission Increase trained Area Directors (including yours truly!) who are familiar with all aspects of our curriculum. These cohorts will be designed to address two different areas:

– Specific application of the quarterly workshop topic being offered  

– Develop fundamental skills taught by Mission Increase and core to our Transformational Giving principles. These topics will include:

  • Building Your Case for Support 
  • Monthly Giving  
  • Acquisition Events 
  • Major Gifts  
  • Year-End Giving  
  • Fundraising Plan Development 
  • Building a Communications Calendar 
  • Telling your nonprofit’s Story 
  • Basics of Digital Marketing 
  • …and more! 

For more information, please check out the MI National Guide



More events coming soon.


Annual Fundraising Plans

A fundraising plan illustrates how an organization will raise the money it plans to spend to achieve its God-given vision and is the backbone for all fundraising work. This Mission Increase learning series will help you create a usable plan that is tailor-made for the size and season of your organization. Board members and staff are encouraged to participate together to maximize this learning opportunity for crafting an effective fundraising plan.
