A DYNAMIC

CHURCH

FOR EVERY COMMUNITY

MIGHT SOUND LIKE A CRAZY VISION

The Fellowship of Visionaries' Pledge

In light of everything Jesus did on the cross, I pledge to live my life to make Jesus known all around this world. I pledge to pray for more churches, for more church planters, for vision from God, for wisdom to know what part God would have me play in bringing a healthy church to every community on the planet, for power to do what God asks of me, for future generations of leaders to rise up and carry this torch forward, and for every tribe and nation to come to believe in Jesus Christ.

But we're visionaries, and we know God is able.

To reach the lost and advance God's Kingdom, we will do anything God calls us to do, and we will go anywhere God calls us to go, because the Gospel is that important. We believe planting churches is the answer. Are you in?

Renaming "New Church Dynamics"

May 11, 20233 min read

Hello DCPI Leaders!

We will be changing the name of our training track, New Church Dynamics (NCD), to Healthy Church Dynamics (HCD)! We have been working quickly to get our materials renamed and ready for you to download. See below for details.

dcpi system of training

Background: One of the 4 Yearly Goals for DCPI we've been communicating is "Repositioning our products to church movements." This was one of the major focuses we believed will set us on the path to training 1.5 million leaders who will plant 4 million churches in the next 10 years. As a part of that, Free Grafton communicated at the last World Zone Gathering in March of this year the concept of building our curriculum into a system of training, where each track fits a focus area to help movement leaders multiply church planting. 

While we are still in the process of building the system (and we'll be rolling those out as they are solidified), one change we knew we could release was the name change of 'New Church Dynamics'. This was a topic you'd already brought up, as you've said these principles don't just apply to new churches, but help existing ones as well. And, this name change 'Healthy Church Dynamics' also fits our systematic approach where we help movements create Thriving churches, not just plant new ones. This complete system, applied over time, should help our partners grow their movements.

When will this happen? 

The name change from 'New Church Dynamics (NCD)' to 'Healthy Church Dynamics (HCD)' will officially take place on June 19th, 2023. 

By May 22nd, ALL course assets for 'Healthy Church Dynamics' in the resources section (downloads) of the website will be updated. This includes the name of the course as well as small content edits such as:  church plant, or 'first few years', we change for churches of all ages. It is possible some translations may take longer to convert. Translations for this course already in the works are already being changed now.

  • All references on the dcpi.org website will be changed to the new course name

  • All brand and marketing assets, available at our DCPI Media Cloud https://dcpi.org/media will be updated by May 22nd. 

What do I need to do?

  1. Download all the latest course resources from our website for 'Healthy Church Dynamics' (password will remain the same) and replace the old with the new. 

  2. Edit the Healthy Church Dynamics Poster/Flyer in your world zone's folder on Canva. Not on Canva? You can have your world zone's graphics person click here to join our team. Don't see this design in your world zone's folder? Contact Amy at abayer@dcpi.org. You may also download the latest HCD Icon from our our DCPI Media Cloud https://dcpi.org/media

  3. COMMUNICATE with your trainers! Any master trainers, senior master trainers, or supporting staff and volunteers should receive a communication from you letting them know to download the above resources by June 19th. 

  4. Update any websites, documents, references you may have published with the new name 'Healthy Church Dynamics'. 

Healthy Church Dynamics

What if I have existing training already set up?

If you have any training events already scheduled, go ahead and train those as planned. But, encourage your trainers to mention the new name to the course during their training. We would like for the new name to be in place as soon as possible. 

If the existing training course is scheduled several months out we recommend changing the name and using it as an excuse to market the training again, hopefully attracting more interest. 

Why is this changing?

DCPI continues to develop our training to bring relevant and dynamic content to empower leaders wanting to grow their movements. 

From real experience training this course, we've found the principles to not just apply to new churches in their infancy, but to existing churches as well. 

DCPI has some exciting changes coming in how we can help you systematically accelerate your church movement. This course will fit within our new training framework. Stay tuned!

We'd love your feedback...

Here's where you come in...

As visionaries, we need to be ever-innovating to make DCPI training the best church planter training in the world. You are in the field, experiencing firsthand the impact of DCPI training, and we would love to hear from you.

Would you, please, provide your input on a few questions?

01

WHAT IS MOST EFFECTIVE?

When you are training leaders (in any DCPI training track), is there a section that really connects with them? What training track/section is it? Why do you think this section is so powerful?

02

WHICH TRAINING TRACK DO YOU TEACH MOST OFTEN?

In your context, which training track is in highest demand? Why do you think leaders in your community need this most?

03

WHAT NEEDS CHANGING?

Though the principles are timeless and the application of our materials is universal, there may be some pieces that need to be updated for a contemporary church planter? What pieces?

04

IS ANYTHING MISSING?

Keeping church planting as the main thing, are there pieces of the church planter's journey that we can better equip them for?

THE DCPI ECOSYSTEM

All of our DCPI trainings are a part of an "ecosystem" designed to equip church planters, mother churches, and church planting mentors from around the world to do this church planting thing right. From start to finish, we are continuously innovating to make sure our training tracks meet you where you are at and teach you what you need to know to get where God is calling you to go.

Categories of DCPI Training

We've Begun Categorizing DCPI Training Tracks

Organizing DCPI training tracks into four categories helps us ensure that everyone who experiences DCPI training learns the pieces they need in order to grow their church or movement.

These Four Categories Form the Complete System

The DCPI training tracks work together to accelerate the movement

When we think about the DCPI training tracks in categories, it helps us see how this is a part of a comprehensive approach to training leaders. When you incorporate all four categories of DCPI training - cultivating, planting, thriving, and multiplying - your movement will experience maximum health and multiplication!

REVIEWS

These reviews were submitted by DCPI trainees via our Training Evaluation Form.

Richard Ngugi,

ASEP


The training was refreshing and concise about critical church systems that once they are honestly addressed the church will be prepared for an exponential growth and reproduction of daughter churches.

Arthur De Guzman, Philippines


DCPI is one of the best training that I've ever attended and I have all the reasons to recommend this training to be attended by church leaders.

Michael Blankenship,

United States


I want to thank DCPI and their whole team that invested in our ministry and vision of planting churches to share the gospel message of Jesus Christ. The quality of the material and the encouragement of the instructors really inspired me. Thank you for your investment in our trying to obey the Great Commission.

Andrew Lupton,

I was inspired by the biblical vision of planting dynamic churches rather than perpetuating stagnant churches. The church is the church when it's multiplicative!
