What we aim to solve New!

We all want to maximize our investment in God’s kingdom. Local churches equip people to put their trust in Jesus and transform their lives. Church planting has proven to be the most effective way to evangelize and disciple unreached people for every generation around the world. DCPI uses a reproductive process that trains key leaders in the countries where they live and know the language, the culture and the people to plant churches. Multitudes are coming to Christ around the world, but there is an alarming shortage of healthy churches to cultivate their new-found faith. A primary reason for this shortage is a lack of trained leaders. Across the globe leaders are needed who are equipped to plant new churches and disciple new believers. DCPI partners with and trains indigenous leaders to plant dynamic churches. Then we equip those leaders to teach others. This is accomplished through DCPI’s proven model of reproductive training which is led by these indigenous church leaders.

DCPI’s partnership with these national church planting leaders all over the world continuously multiplies the number of leaders trained and effectively keeps costs amazingly low. Working alongside local leaders ensures that our training materials are culturally relevant and easily understood. Ultimately, resulting in the transfer of vision, leadership and stewardship to leaders within their own church planting networks. Through these active international partnerships, DCPI is on target to train the remaining 188,000 leaders needed to finish the planting of the first million churches of the Five Million Church vision. What will it take? • Train – 188,000 leaders to finish the first million churches by 2020. • Transfer – vision, leadership and stewardship to leaders in 82 new countries, some of which are among the most dangerous places in the world. • Transform – 24,500 NexGen to embrace church planting and discipleship as the best way to impact the world for Christ.

Over four and half billion people in the world do not yet know Jesus. The need for dynamic churches today is greater than at any point in history. The world needs more churches ...five million new churches..to disciple this world for Christ..to spread the Kingdom of God and to give God glory from every nation on earth. By training trainers, DCPI multiplies our capacity to accomplish our most basic vision: church planting that reaches every generation to win the world to Christ. We must multiply partnerships with indigenous trainers of church planting leaders who know the unique challenges and characteristics of their nations. These trainers will go places we can never go, reach people we cannot reach, train in languages we cannot speak and relate to people groups that we cannot. It is a God-inspired strategy, fueled by a compelling vision, and accomplished by God through a team of indigenous partners. It is proven by past performance, current predictors, and grounded in faith.

Together we can plant the first 1,000,000 churches by 2020! “Past behavior is the best predictor of future performance.” Lou Adler To determine the fruitfulness of our mission, DCPI sent research teams to countries where we have provided training for at least five years. Based on the research completed in India, Ghana, Kenya and The Philippines, we learned equipped leaders will plant 2.55 churches on average within 5 years. If God were to bless each area with the same results found in our research, we would see over 521,000 churches planted around the world through our trained leaders. The potential harvest in these new churches would be over 24,000,000 new believers for Christ. It is in these churches that new believers are discipled and nurtured in their faith. They, too, will go and make disciples.

Indigenous leaders are essential to our strategy which begins and ends with them. We will not go to a country unless we are invited by a key church planting national host leader. We depend upon that leader to recruit gifted trainers and church planters for training. We equip Certified Trainers among these national leaders to train their own people and plant churches. The key to seeing the Five Million Church Vision become reality is through the indigenous leaders we collaborate with in nations around the world. They are our Certified Trainers and Master Trainers. A Certified Trainer (CT) is a leader who has attended DCPI’s training and is selected to train others in one or more of our training tracks. CT’s share the vision and introduce DCPI’s training to their network of leaders. DCPI’s Master Trainers (MT) are our most reproductive trainers. They are empowered by DCPI to certify trainers for their nations. As stewards of the training, they report their progress for tracking.

Together we can plant the first 1,000,000 churches by 2020! “Past behavior is the best predictor of future performance.” Lou Adler PROVEN EFFECTIVENESS... Since 1995 through 2017, DCPI has: • Trained 191,539 church planting leaders in 121 countries • Appointed 571 Master Trainers • Planted 522,901 new churches reaching 24,419,477 new believers according to current research and projections • Developed 9 tracks of church planting training materials • Translated church planting training materials into 46 languages and 122 tracks We must be utilized by God to establish new churches now that will keep pace with the most rapidly changing world ever in history!

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
