Serving Asian churches as they make disciples and equip leaders
The vision of Increase is to see
churches equipping all Christ’s followers in their contexts, so that many millions are disciplined and empowered for mission, ministry, and leadership.
The purpose of Increase is to connect and strengthen church-based training movements across Asia and beyond.
What we do
We have developed and collected many resources for members and partnering organisations. In our resources you can find the Diaspora Booklet, resources for Online and Blended Learning and more.
TEE traditionally stands for Theological Education by Extension, but is more easily understood as 'Tools to Equip and Empower'- tools for local churches to equip and empower all their members to grow in Christ and serve him actively.
National Church based training organisations can become members of Increase. We currently have 29 members from all across Asia.
What international Christian leaders say about Increase
The Increase network is strategic in ensuring continual development and a high level of excellence in TEE and other grass-roots training programmes.
