For church planters and their teams

This foundational DCPI training teaches trainees how to plant a church. Using the pattern of a baby being formed in 9 months of pregnancy, students learn how to start churches from conception to birth and beyond. They plan culturally relevant outreach, develop a Process of Discipleship and learn about how to avoid difficulties in planting.

During Church Planting Essentials training each participant is required to prepare Vision-Plan-Timeline (VPT). The VPT is designed to help you begin applying what you are learning in the training and to move you further along in the vision and planting of new churches.

Available in 44 languages. Also available in Orality storytelling format for oral cultures.

This training equips you to...

Organize, refine and pinpoint your vision, purpose, strategies and timeline early, so that you have a clear plan for the future.

Use the 12 Biblical principles for church planting in everything you do.

This track is also known as Church Planting Discipleship (CPD)

For those preparing to plant a micro-church

This training takes every attendee to understand the basics of how to explain the Gospel and gather believers through the different “fields” of church planting.

By far our most interactive track, this track empowers participants with ample opportunities to practice what they are learning before applying what they learn in a real-life situation. In contrast to other DCPI training tracks, this track can often be spread out over a period of several months, allowing participants extra preparation time before starting their church.

For future DCPI Trainers

We’re so happy that you want to train others! It’s natural to want to share everything you’ve learned from DCPI because of how absolutely life-changing these principles are. Certified Trainers (CTs) are at the core of how we multiply church planters worldwide.
All of our Certified Trainers are men and women who have gone through our training, planted a church, and are ready to help others get trained to plant churches.

How it Works

After completing at least one track of DCPI training and participating in a church plant, you may sign up to attend a Certified Trainer course. The CT course requires around
5-6 hours of instruction in how to train and how to set up a training event. These trainings are regularly available via webinar. Please be sure to attend all sessions. There aren’t make-ups in CT trainings.

Next, a DCPI Master Trainer (MT) will interview you to get to know you. You will have an opportunity to demonstrate your training ability by training a part of 12 Biblical principles. Then, you will make a presentation to a small group of DCPI leaders that answers what is your vision to train others. You will have to sign that you agree with DCPI’s theology, and then you will be ready to start scheduling your own trainings! We can’t wait to help you reach further by becoming a Certified Trainer!
