The Church Planting Institute (CPI) is a three-year, church-based theological and church-planting training program. CPI trains Filipino church planters capable of training more trainers of church planters for church multiplication. Requirements for graduation include fulfillment of the training modules (classes) and regular on-the-job training in church-planting areas. Churches started by CPI students and graduates are interdependent, resource-sharing churches that are committed to helping each other start new churches. CPI students are currently starting churches in Tarlac and Pangasinan provinces as well as other parts of the Philippines, and are now deploying to other countries in Southeast Asia. Graduates of CPI are also starting their own branches of the Church Planting Institute wherever they start churches in order to train their own workers for church multiplication.
