About the CPCP

To Every Tribe’s Center for Pioneer Church Planting (CPCP) endeavors to train and mentor cross-cultural missionaries for the remaining unreached regions where there is still no grace, no gospel, and no name for Jesus Christ.


The 60/40 blend of in-class and on-the-job training exercises makes the CPCP unique in its missionary training philosophy.  The CPCP is distinctive in its combined commitment to:

BIBLICAL THEOLOGY We are committed to a reformed, baptistic understanding of Scripture. 

UNREACHED PEOPLES Our training is specifically designed for those wanting to be prepared for pioneer evangelism and church planting among the unreached.

TEAM MINISTRY Pioneer church planting is physically, emotionally, and spiritually demanding.  It is most effectively carried out by a healthy team approach to ministry. A significant part of the CPCP training is to equip missionaries to be a part of successful church planting teams.

ON-THE-JOB TRAINING We provide experience.  It is our belief that church planters cannot be adequately trained in a traditional classroom alone.  We intentionally create practical cross-cultural training situations in Mexico, Papua New Guinea, southeast Asia, and First Nations in Canada. 

PERSONAL MENTORING The CPCP is not interested in merely informing your mind, but transforming your character and abilities into experiential, cross-cultural know-how.

MAKING DISCIPLES Pioneer church planting begins with making disciples. CPCP Missionary Trainees will develop strategies to bring the gospel to communities in Northern Mexico with the goal of establishing new believers in the faith and equipping them to make new disciples.
