MDI's LENS on Fundraising

MDI LENS on Fundraising


Being responsible for fundraising can feel intimidating, but it doesn't have to be.  In this training session, you'll learn about God's intentional design of giving and the role the Holy Spirit plays in drawing supporters to His Kingdom work.  You'll learn that “Fundraising is, first and foremost, a ministry,” as renowned author and teacher Henri Nouwen writes.  You'll also get to learn from our featured guest trainer, Anne Calton, the Middle Tennessee Area Director for Mission Increase, as she shares additional insights on "Transformational Giving".  You'll even get to learn how to help leaders develop an Annual Fundraising Plan that can give a step-by-step guide for the coming year, effectively taking the guess-work and stress out of the process.

We want to continually provide you with the best tools and resources that we have.  So please enjoy this incredible information and know that there will be more to come in the future. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions about this training module, please contact Marti Scudder at and Steve Lorenz at
