world-class church planter training

Is God calling YOU to plant a church?

If God is calling you to plant a church, the first thing to do is to learn how to plant a church from people who have planted churches before you. At DCPI, all of our trainers have planted at least one church, and we are ready to equip you with our time-tested trainings to become confident, passionate, and ready, as you follow God on your church planting journey.


Wherever you are, we’re there, too.

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.”

“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.”

“We found in DCPI, training that is simple, practical and reproducible to help us certify 6 trainers to  train over 60 church planters in just over 2 years. We are so grateful for this resource and to be a part of this larger vision to plant 5,000,000 churches.”

“DCPI has captured the absolute urgency of planting churches and has a powerful, proven strategy. They focus on the mobilization of nationals, by far the best of all methods. I’ve seen the results and heartily endorse the work of DCPI.”

Paul Eshelman

Start with the essentials. We offer eight trainings designed to equip church planters around the world to fulfill their callings. We recommend starting with our foundational training, Church Planting Essentials.

In Church Planting Essentials, you’ll learn and apply the 12 Biblical Principles of Church Planting, as you develop your own Vision, Plan, and Timeline (VPT) and outline how your church will take shape. In this interactive and comprehensive training you will learn to plan prayerfully, discern and pursue your vision effectively, and avoid planting “landmines.”
