1. A Wonderful Vision
Our aim is to “equip leaders to impact the planting of 5 million churches.” We do not want to start “DCPI churches” but rather to assist you to plant the churches for which God has given you a vision.
2. Biblical Principles
We base our training on Biblical principles. These principles are timeless and transcultural, since they come from the God’s Word.
3. Universal Application
Rather than promoting a particular model of church or church planting, our principles are designed to apply to whatever church planting model you choose to utilize (traditional church, seeker church, house church, attractional church, missional church, cell church, multisite church and so on).
We want to train your leaders to become Certified Trainers and then give them our DCPI materials so they can reproduce in your network.
The training lasts 3 days (21 hours) per track (CPM training lasts 2 days.) Certification takes one additional day.
We train leaders to serve in their own culture which is more efficient than training missionaries and sending them to serve after the study of a new language and culture.
