How did God call you to DCPI?
“During a conference in Cebu, Philippines called Call-2-All, I joined a workshop on church planting and DCPI. I liked the sounds of the training, prayed about it, then I traveled with my wife to the northern Philippines for my first training track.
After becoming a Certified Trainer, I began conducting DCPI trainings and then became a Master Trainer and started certifying other Certified Trainers. My wife and I prayed about joining staff with DCPI NEXGEN and felt it was the Lord’s will to apply for the position.”
