Nearly One Million Churches Planted.

Reaching the first million churches planted by DCPI-trained leaders is a big deal.

One million churches was the original vision that God gave to Dr. Paul Becker, the President and Founder of DCPI.

In 1997, God challenged Paul to equip church leaders who will impact the planting of one million churches.

Training church leaders to plant one million churches seemed outrageous at the time. Little did Paul know that 12 years later, in 2009, God would blow the one million church vision up to five million churches.

While we look ahead to see five million churches planted, right in front of us is the opportunity to reach that first milestone: training the church planters who will plant one million churches.

Will you join God’s work to reach the world for Christ by planting one million churches?

Stories of Churches Planted by DCPI Trained Leaders


You have a new sister in the Lord! Her name is Reina, and she lives in Panama. She met Jesus at Guna Yala Church, a congregation that was planted by a DCPI-trained leader. Having been visited time and again by those who were planning to launch the church, she came to Guna Yala’s first gathering and there she accepted Christ.


When Pastor Labråten attended his first DCPI training, it was something he really needed. He had a vision for church planting, but DCPI was a tool that provided the “how” for him. Today he’s a Certified Trainer and is planning trainings throughout Norway, and working on plans for Sweden.

What will it take to reach the First Million Churches planted? We’re glad you asked.
