Who we are

Dynamic Church Planting International (DCPI) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 1992 with the vision of training leaders in every country of the world to plant dynamic churches to reach the world for Jesus. We offer all of our trainings sponsored by generous donors, allowing hundreds of thousands of men and women called by God to take the Gospel to their tribes, tongues, and nations without financial barriers. We offer 8 tracks of training built upon biblical principles and actionable applications, so DCPI churches are effective and healthy. In 2021, we celebrated 1 MILLION churches!

Our Story

God built DCPI from one mentor to a vision for five million churches.

1992: Founder, Paul Becker, received a vision from the Lord to found an organization to train church planters, using his experience in church planting.

1994: Dynamic Church Planting International (DCPI) was founded.

 God gave DCPI the audacious vision of training leaders to plant ONE THOUSAND churches. DCPI expanded over the years to multiple countries and multiple languages, with a vision of 20,000 churches then 1 million churches and reaching to every country of the world.

Early 2000s:
DCPI expanded its model to make every training sponsored and to certify trainers, so that we could continue training pastors in places we would never go and in languages we will never speak. This sponsorship approach ensures that financial barriers do not hinder the equipping of church leaders globally.

 God knocked down an old oak tree that had been significant to our founder Paul Becker, and He used this to tell Paul that the One Million Church Vision was too small. God was calling DCPI to equip men and women of God to plant FIVE MILLION CHURCHES. In obedience, the DCPI team believed God, and we have been pursuing His vision enthusiastically to this day!

2021: God fulfilled the 1 million church vision when DCPI trained the leader who will plant the 1 millionth church!

2022: DCPI Founder Paul Becker died during the exact week that DCPI’s global leaders gathered for a Global Vision Summit. God showed DCPI leaders the way forward and reminded them that the 5 Million Church Vision is God’s vision! 


Our mission is to train leaders to plant dynamic churches. We equip those leaders with time-tested, Biblically-based training curriculum, so that they plant healthy churches that reproduce and plant more healthy churches. Our research shows that each leader trained plants an average of 2.55 churches, and each church leads an average of 40 people to Christ. 


Our vision is to equip leaders to plant five million churches to reach the world for Christ. As of January 2022, we have trained leaders to plant over one million churches! We are now focusing on the Five Million Church Vision with excitement and determination. God has also given us a vision to introduce our training to every country of the world. We have just 29 countries left, and we know God will do it. 


Our values are woven throughout our DNA. Check out our DNA below.

You’ll see that our two highest values are God’s Word and His people. We value the Bible and base all of our trainings on truth from God’s Word instead of situation-based models. We value diversity and work almost exclusively through national leaders reaching their regions for Jesus. Scroll to see our DNA.



Quality over Quantity

We believe that multiplying qualified reproductive trainers and leaders is more essential than training a crowd.

Practical Application

We believe that a written and verbal project makes the training come to life, and must be done by every student, in every training even.

Indigenous Leadership

We believe it is crucial to empower indigenous leaders.

Team Teaching

We believe in a team approach to provide high quality church planting training.

Give and it Will be Given

We believe in a “Give and it shall be given” approach to personal support and national funding.


We believe in working with all leaders who are Bible-teaching and Christ-centered.

Kingdom Focus

We believe in focusing on the growth of God’s Kingdom worldwide through church planting, evangelism and discipleship.


We believe that if you are not reporting, you are not a DCPI trainer or leader.


We believe in completing a God-given vision and expanding the church planting visions of others.

Leader of Leaders

We look for, work through, and develop apostolic style leaders, who can significantly influence entire regions and the whole world for Christ.

How it Works

One training and one leader at a time, DCPI leaders teach principles for church planting, growing new churches, planting house churches, etc. Our students learn how to write a Vision-Plan-Timeline (VPT), which helps them outline each step in the process toward planting their church. We walk them through each piece of the planning, so their churches are structured in a healthy way and prayerfully designed. Then, we prayerfully send them out to follow God’s call. Leaders we have trained often come back to us for more trainings and to get certified to train others! Our content is THAT helpful. 

Sponsored Trainings: How and Why?

God spoke to our founder in 2004 and said, “Give and it will be given to you,” and we responded by faith. God inspired us to make all of our DCPI training accessible without direct costs to participants, to help the maximum number of people worldwide. However, training people does incur costs. It requires resources to develop content, transport leaders, rent facilities globally, and much more. We are able to offer our trainings through the generous contributions of our donors. Kingdom-minded individuals and organizations generously provide so that we can equip church planters everywhere. Would you like to contribute? You can! Give below.

How We Multiply

DCPI’s multiplication strategy is what has turned our mission into a movement. Our simple and intentional appointment of Certified Trainers, Master Trainers, and Senior Master Trainers extends the impact of DCPI to the far corners of the world. Basically, once a person has gone through one of our trainings, he or she is sent out to plant a church. Once that person has planted a church, they can get certified to teach our DCPI materials as a “Certified Trainer (CT)”. Certified Trainers can get certified to certify trainers as “Master Trainers (MTs)”, and so we grow.
