Our vision is to see a healthy church in every community of the world. We believe that means the world will need about 5,000,000 churches planted. To do this, the world needs 1.6 million equipped, empowered church planters.

Let's talk about what you can learn.

DCPI offers trainings for every stage of your church planting journey. All of our trainings are funded by donors and are designed to equip you with biblical principles that work anywhere in the world.

The DCPI System

There are four categories of DCPI training. We would love to help you identify the most effective training tracks for you!

Who We Are


Our mission is to train leaders to plant dynamic churches. We equip those leaders with world-class, 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. Our organization, as a whole, has a vision for five million churches worldwide. As of January 2022, we have trained leaders to plant over one million churches and counting!

God has also given us a vision to introduce our training to every country of the world. We have just over 20 countries left, and we know God will do it. 


We keep a close eye on our trainees to make sure that our training is, and continues to be, maximally effective.

Our research shows that every DCPI-trained church planter starts 2.55 churches within the first five years after their DCPI training.

Their churches lead, on average, 40 people to Christ.

They are healthy, reproductive, Gospel-sharing, Great-Commission-fulfilling churches.

Why We Care

All of our DCPI trainers have planted at least one church or been a part of a successful planting team, and we know how difficult it can be to start a church without really knowing how. That's actually why DCPI exists. Over twenty-five years ago, our team saw a need from our own personal experience, and began developing curriculum to help church planters everywhere.

We know that even those leaders who are super educated often do not have a practical roadmap to start a healthy church. So, we continue to bring our training worldwide, free of charge, to help you and people like you understand the 12 Biblical Principles that will give you a right understanding of church planting, straight out of the Bible. We also teach you to avoid and navigate the "church planting landmines" that will come your way. And, we teach you how to look at your church plant in the context of the vision God has given you and the plan we've helped you develop. Without those things, we really don't know how people do it.

Would you let us help make this a little easier for you?

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does DCPI training cost?

All of our trainings are sponsored by donors, so they are FREE for everyone God is calling to participate in a church plant or church planting team!

At times, depending on the training location, there can be an expense to cover the costs of lunch, printing, technology, or the venue. These costs go toward the extra components and are not a charge for training. The desire is that cost is never a hinderance for attendance.

Where can I get trained?

We offer in-person and Zoom webinar trainings throughout our world zone. If you are interested in getting trained online, we offer online training from time to time. Our Online Training platform allows students to register for a coach-assisted cohort. The coach will then email materials, instructions, meeting links directly to the registrant.
