Let's Grow Together

The Development & Discipleship initiative is a partnership between CAFO and Mission Increase (MI) designed to help child-serving ministries grasp and apply a vision for development that not only seeks to raise funds, but also builds up Christian givers as disciples of Jesus -- ultimately leading to expanded reach and increased effectiveness of Christian care for orphaned and vulnerable children worldwide.

We provide teaching, coaching and consulting to CAFO members in effective, biblically-based fundraising principles and practices. Members who engage with the Development & Discipleship initiative will grow in their fundraising understanding and effectiveness, experience more joy in their calling and raise more funds as they learn to catalyze well-informed, effective, and Christ-hearted giving.


The Development & Discipleship initiative advances these goals through three levels of connection with member organizations:


Workshops, webinars, and CAFO Summit sessions grounded in a practical, biblically-based fundraising curriculum cover topics such as acquisition, major gifts, ministry communications, ministry leadership, and more.


Group and individual coaching for leaders and development staff to help them apply teaching principles to the unique context and concerns of their ministry work.


One-to-one consulting to a select group of member organizations, offering a more comprehensive and in-depth look at ministry and fundraising operations.


Join the community email list to get news and updates as well as access to exclusive content, resources, and ongoing training.
