Since Ministry Ventures was born 20 years ago, one of the constant messages we shared with ministry leaders is that “we are better than me.” We believe that close collaboration and walking with locked arms alongside organizations serving in similar spaces isn’t just good ministry, it’s also good business.

Over the last year we have realized that Ministry Ventures’ mission and the mission of Mission Increase are in very close alignment. As leaders we have always challenged ourselves to put into practice what we have preached to ministries.

Simply put, we’ve realized that we can have a greater kingdom impact together than we ever could separately. Therefore, it is with great pride and excitement that we are announcing the merger of Ministry Ventures with Mission Increase.

As of July 1, the Ministry Ventures content and several of their coaches will be merging with Mission Increase. Current locations that Mission Increase serves will continue to be served using both organization’s content, along with 3 new regions that Mission Increase will acquire where Ministry Ventures has had a strong presence – Atlanta, GA; Greenville, SC and the Denver/Colorado Springs area.

We invite you to watch this short video from Boyd Bailey, founder of Ministry Ventures endorsing the merger:

We look forward to keeping a relationship with you under the Mission Increase umbrella. Look for webinar opportunities and trainings in your inbox soon.

Finally, here is a short paragraph from Dan Davis, President of Mission Increase:

“Twenty years ago, on opposite sides of the country, the Lord was stirring in a few people’s hearts. The stirring was simple. The stirring was the same. How do we help Christian ministries grow, through biblically based fundraising and leadership training? Over the years Mission Increase (Portland, OR) has been a fan of the work of Ministry Ventures (Atlanta, GA) in the Christian non-profit space. We believe the Lord called us both to this work and that now we will be better together as we join forces. We look forward to seeing how the Lord expands our footprint from coast to coast. In the coming months there will be more information about the merger and our plans moving into 2020. In the meantime, if you are interested in finding out more about Mission Increase, please feel free click here for some short videos, including some ministry leader testimonials.”

Thank you for being part of the Ministry Ventures Community. We are thrilled about this new season and look forward to sharing more soon!
