More About Billy

Billy Thrall serves as the Area Director for Mission Increase Arizona. An Arizona native who has been a part of the Phoenix community for many years, Billy has worked to build bridges for businesses, churches, and government leaders. Billy’s heart for the poor began in college at the University of Arizona where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. He then attended Fuller Theological Seminary to earn his Master of Arts degree in Theology. In 2010, after 22 years of church ministry, Billy partnered with business, civic, and church communities to launch a six-month Season of Service which included the Arizona CityFest. The impact of these service projects inspired Billy to create an ongoing connection called CityServe Arizona where communities can proclaim Christ and serve Arizona together. Billy comes to Mission Increase with a desire to see nonprofits thrive and develop healthy plans for growth and development. He is married to Charlotte and they have three grown children and two grandchildren.

Welcome to MI Arizona!

Mission Increase (MI) Arizona is a community of Christian ministries working to implement a biblical approach to fundraising to grow and more fully-achieve their God-given mission. What do we want FOR Arizona as a result? An “overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.” (2 Corinthians 9:12-NIV)

Funded by givers from this community, MI Arizona is able to offer teaching, coaching, consulting, and even matching grants, all at no cost to ministries. Together, givers and ministries are leveraging God’s resources to transform our communities. We invite you to join us!

Scottsdale Bible Church partners with Mission Increase to help ministries grow. Local congregations and ministries working together through Mission Increase is a beautiful picture of synergy and unity as we reach our communities for Christ.
