Called to plant a church? Learn how to do it from experienced church planters. Our training is sponsored, and we are ready to equip you with our biblically-based, proven DCPI System to become confident, passionate, and ready to start the church God has put on your heart.


Most church planters don't actually know how to plant a church, so we equip them with the training and multiplication system, so they can plant effective, gospel-sharing churches anywhere in the world.

We want to help you get more leaders who are ready and willing to plant churches in the future through our CULTIVATING TRAININGS.

What DCPI trainees are saying…

“The best part was the practicality of the training. Especially the four phases of planting a church. I already had the passion but not the ‘know-how.'”

Thomas L.
Church Planter, Mozambique

“For us [this training] is not an end but… the beginning of a process of bringing to birth thousands of dynamic, healthy, self-multiplying churches throughout the nation of Mozambique. We use this forum to express our deep appreciation to all who prayed, gave, and served to see these trainings accomplished. God bless you.”

Mike R.
Church Planter

“I came into the Church Planting Essentials Training thinking I was just learning about DCPI, and left with ideas for a micro-church that God just might be leading me to launch. This training encouraged and challenged me, and has spurred me on to love and good deeds.”

Philip. D
Church Planter, USA
