Is God calling you to plant a church?

Church planting is the process of starting a new church, anywhere in the world, in response to God’s call. 

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.

"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.'"
