On July 11, 2009, DCPI President & Founder, Paul Becker was on a prayer retreat overlooking the Pacific Ocean, asking the Lord, “Lord, do you want leaders who have been trained by DCPI to plant more than one million churches?” and the Lord said, “Increase the vision to 5 million.”
And Paul said, “Really, Lord, do you really want us to increase the vision to 5 million?”
And the Lord said, “It’s already on the projection.”
Paul hid that vision in his heart and didn’t tell anyone, and in the next two weeks, three separate people on three different continents all shared a confirmation of the Five Million Church Vision…
Each of them said something like, “Paul, your vision is too small, and we think DCPI leaders are going to plant more like five million churches.”
So we are following God’s lead.
We’ve made great progress toward the vision, and we hope to complete the planting of our first 1 million churches by the end of 2021! We can’t wait to see how God fulfills this vision to raise up leaders and plant churches for our children, grandchildren, and the billions of people around the world who need Jesus.
