Core Members

Membership of the Increase Association is open to all those involved in church-based training movements in Asia and beyond who accept the Statement of Faith given in the Increase Constitution.

Core Members

National church-based training organisations which fulfil the following criteria:

  • Their work is nationally governed
  • Their training programme is ongoing, systematic and Bible-based
  • They use active learning methods and interactive learning with others
  • Their programme is rooted in the local context and the local church
  • They serve in ‘greater Asia’ or among its peoples worldwide.

 Each Core Member organisation is entitled to name one or two representatives in their organisation to act as their link with Increase and participate in Increase decision-making.

Core Members are independent organisations, responsible for their own affairs, but 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. See Membership Contributions

Prospective members in all categories submit a membership application for consideration by the Increase Committee.
