Church Planting Essentials Lessons From Those Who Have Been There

DCPI has two convictions about the Church Planting Essentials training. The first conviction is the 12 Biblical Principals Of Church Planting is essential for the development and birth of a healthy new church. Every session in the training will support and apply one or more of the Biblical principles.
