church planter training

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. Best news? We ask our donors to pay for you to attend, so our trainings don’t cost you!
