Church Planter's Institute

Because of ongoing travel restrictions, the 2020 Church Planter's Institute has been canceled. 

The theme (Fishers of Men) and location (Urbana, Ohio) will be preserved for 2021 (May 21-23, 2021), with some potential variations in some of the workshops.

If you have ever wondered how your church could take the next step towards planting a new church, you should consider attending the 2020  CPI. 

As an extension of DNI, this annual event provides ongoing training for anyone interested in church planting. Glean insights from experienced church planters and leaders, ask questions in a safe environment and join together with other visionaries in prayer.

If you're not convinced, listen to recordings from previous Church Planters Institutes here.
