About DCPI


Our mission is to train leaders to plant dynamic churches. We equip those leaders with time-tested, 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. As of January 2022, we have trained leaders to plant over one million churches! We are now focusing on the Five Million Church Vision with excitement and determination.

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.

The DCPI Story

1992: Founder, Paul Becker, received a vision from the Lord to found an organization to train church planters, using his experience in church planting.

1994: Dynamic Church Planting International (DCPI) was founded.

1995: God gave DCPI the audacious vision of training leaders to plant ONE THOUSAND churches. DCPI expanded over the years to multiple countries and multiple languages, with a vision of 20,000 churches then 1 million churches and reaching to every country of the world.

Early 2000s: DCPI expanded its model to make every training free of charge and to certify trainers, so that we could continue training pastors in places we would never go and in languages we will never speak.

2009: God knocked down an old oak tree that had been significant to our founder Paul Becker, and He used this to tell Paul that the One Million Church Vision was too small. God was calling DCPI to equip men and women of God to plant FIVE MILLION CHURCHES. In obedience, the DCPI team believed God, and we have been pursuing His vision enthusiastically to this day!

2021: God fulfilled the 1 million church vision when DCPI trained the leader who will plant the 1 millionth church!

2022: DCPI Founder Paul Becker died during the exact week that DCPI’s global leaders gathered for a Global Vision Summit. God showed DCPI leaders the way forward and reminded them that the 5 Million Church Vision is God’s vision!

2023: We are on track to have a record training number- the highest number of leaders trained in our history this year!


  • Quality over Quantity

    We believe that multiplying qualified reproductive trainers and leaders is more essential than training a crowd.

  • Give and it Will be Given

    We believe in a “Give and it shall be given” approach to personal support and national funding.

  • Accountability

    We believe that if you are not reporting, you are not a DCPI trainer or leader.

  • Practical Application

    We believe that a written and verbal project makes the training come to life, and must be done by every student, in every training even.

  • Cooperation

    We believe in working with all leaders who are Bible-teaching and Christ-centered.

  • Envisioning

    We believe in completing a God-given vision and expanding the church planting visions of others.

  • Indigenous Leadership

    We believe it is crucial to empower indigenous leaders.

  • Kingdom Focus

    We believe in focusing on the growth of God’s Kingdom worldwide through church planting, evangelism and discipleship.

  • Leader of Leaders

    We look for, work through, and develop apostolic style leaders, who can significantly influence entire regions and the whole world for Christ.

  • Team Teaching

    We believe in a team approach to provide high quality church planting training.


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.
Are you ready to be equipped to succeed at this awesome thing God is calling you to do?

1,334,193 churches planted...so far


The Doctrinal Statement of Faith is to be used as the official doctrinal position of Dynamic Church Planting International, and its contents are to be taught and agreed upon by all new staff as a prerequisite for staff membership.
The International Office will be responsible for seeing that every staff member continues to be in conformity to this Statement of Faith.

The sole basis of our beliefs is the Bible, God’s infallible written Word, the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments. We believe that it was uniquely, verbal plenary and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, and that it was written without error in the original manuscripts. It is the inerrant, supreme and final authority in all matters on which it speaks.

We accept those large areas of doctrinal teaching on which, historically, there has been general agreement among all true Christians. Because of the specialized calling of our ministry, we desire to allow for freedom of conviction on other doctrinal matters, provided that any interpretation is based upon the Bible alone, and that no such interpretation shall become an issue which hinders the ministry to which God has called us.

We explicitly affirm our belief in basic Bible teachings as follows:

There is one true God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – each of whom equally shares all the attributes of deity and the characteristics of personality. Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:18; John 1:1-3,18; Acts 5:3,4

Jesus Christ is God, the living Word, who became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. Hence, He is perfect deity and true humanity united in one person forever. John 1:1,14; Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:30-37; Colossians 2:9; Philippians 2:6-11

He lived a sinless life and voluntarily atoned for the sins of men by dying on the cross as their substitute, thus satisfying divine justice and accomplishing salvation for all who trust in Him alone. I John 3:5; I Peter 3:18; John 10:17-18; II Corinthians 5:21; I John 4:10; Romans 3:24-26

He rose from the dead in the same body, though glorified, in which He had lived and died. I Corinthians 15:4,14; Luke 24:36-43; John 20:24-29

He ascended bodily into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God the Father where He, the only mediator between God and man, continually makes intercession for His own. Acts 1:9-11; Ephesians 1:20; I Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 7:24,25; I John 2: 1-2

Man was originally created in the image of God. He sinned by disobeying God; thus, he was alienated from his Creator. That brought all mankind under divine condemnation. Genesis1:26-27;2:15-17; 3:1-24: Romans 5:12-21; I Corinthians 15:21-22

Man’s nature is corrupted, and he is thus totally unable to please God. Every man is in need of regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit. Romans 3:9-20; Ephesians 2:1-7; Mark 7:20-23; John 3:1-21; Titus 3:5-7

The salvation of man is wholly a work of God’s free grace and is not the work, in whole or in part, of human works of goodness or religious ceremony. God imputes His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation, and thereby justifies them in His sight. Ephesians 2:8-10; Romans3:21-26;9:30-33; Galatians 3:11-14,22-24

It is the privilege of all who are born again of the Spirit to be assured of their salvation from the very moment in which they trust Christ as their Savior. This assurance is not based upon any kind of human merit, but is produced by the witness of the Holy Spirit, who confirms in the believer the testimony of God in His written Word. I Thessalonians 1:5; John 1:12; I John 5:9-13; Romans 8:14-17

The Holy Spirit has come into the world to reveal and glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to men. He convicts and draws sinners to Christ, imparts new life to them, continually indwells them from the moment of spiritual birth and seals them until the day of redemption. His fullness, power, control and gifts are appropriated in the believer’s life by faith. John 3:5-8; 16:7-15; Titus 3:5; Romans 8:2-4,9; Ephesians 1:13-14; 4:30; I Corinthians 6:19; Galatians 3:2-3

Every believer is called to live in the power of the indwelling Spirit so that he will not fulfill the lust of the flesh but will bear fruit to the glory of God. Galatians 5:16-25; Ephesians 5:18

Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, His Body, which is composed of all living and dead, who have been joined to Him through saving faith. Colossians 1:18; Ephesians1:22-23;5:23-32; I Thessalonians 4:13-18

God admonishes His people to assemble together regularly for worship, for participation in ordinances, for edification through the Scriptures and for mutual encouragement. Hebrews 10:23-25; Acts 2:42; 20:7; I Corinthians 12:20-28; 16:1-2; Ephesians 4: 11-16, I Timothy 4:13; II Timothy 3:16; 4:2

At physical death the believer enters immediately into eternal, conscious fellowship with the Lord and awaits the resurrection of his body to everlasting glory and blessing. II Corinthians 5:8; Philippians 1:23-24; Luke 23:39-43; I Corinthians 15:12-58; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; I John 3:2; Philippians 3:21

At physical death the unbeliever enters immediately into eternal, conscious separation from the Lord and awaits the resurrection of his body to everlasting judgment and condemnation. Luke 16:19-31; John 5:23-29; Revelation 20:10-15; Matthew 13:40-43

Jesus Christ will come again to the earth – personally, visibly, and bodily – to consummate history and the eternal plan of God. Acts 1:9-11; 3:19-21; Revelation 19:1-22; 21

The Lord Jesus commanded all believers to proclaim the gospel throughout the world and to disciple men of every nation. The fulfillment of the Great Commission requires that all worldly and personal ambitions be subordinated to a total commitment to “Him who loved us and gave Himself for us.” Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-16; Luke 24:46-49; Acts 1:7-8; Romans 12:1-2; Galatians 2:19-20; Philippians 3:7-21

“DCPI has captured the absolute urgency of planting churches and has a powerful, proven strategy. They focus on the mobilization of nationals, by far the best of all methods. I’ve seen the results and heartily endorse the work of DCPI.”
