The DCI Schools of Mission have no walls, no frontiers and no fees.

At least half of the world’s two billion Christians are led by pastors in the developing world with less than two weeks training so the DCI School of Mission was specially designed to help these many men and women who have no access to resources or the means of paying for their training. It is also for every believer and everyone who wants to know about following Jesus.

The DCI School of Mission studies are available in 26 languages and have been in use worldwide since 1987. No-one at DCI will ask you for money because these lessons are genuinely free of charge to help you to learn and then to teach others. Our training is open to everyone and we have no wallsno frontiers and no fees, we never have asked for money and we never will.
