Increase is an Association of church-based training organisations rooted in and around Asia. From Egypt to Indonesia and most places in between, as well as in diaspora groups around the world.
Increase member organisations are helping churches in their own countries to make disciples and grow their leaders. This work is led by national believers pioneering new initiatives for their own people.
Increase plays a servant role, bringing TEE organisations together and providing a platform to share experience, expertise, best practice and innovative ways to serve churches, as well as raising awareness of TEE in the global community.
Core Members and Fellowship Members are independent organisations but all members are expected to:
participate actively in the work of Increase and promote it;
where possible, share their materials, approaches and learning;
pay an Increase membership contribution.
Membership of the Increase Association is open to all those involved in church-based training organisations in Asia and beyond who accept the Statement of Faith given in the Increase Constitution.
Core Members are national church-based training organisations which:
are nationally owned and led;
have an ongoing, systematic and Bible-based training programme;
use active learning methods and interactive learning in small groups;
are rooted in the local context and the local church;
serve in ‘greater Asia’ or among its peoples worldwide.
Each Core Member organisation can choose two representatives to link with Increase and participate in Increase decision-making.
