CPC is not a course about church planting where people work out whether they could plant a church.
This happens before – the CPC candidates must be fully approved and tested in their local church before they are sent to the course. The course is for church planters not about church planting.
CPC is a course for the few, not the many. Therefore it has a maximum of 24 participants per course. CPC is not about theories. CPC only has trainers who have planted c3 churches and are current practitioners. CPC focuses on what works. CPC is not a general course for church planters. CPC is a specific course for C3 church planters.
It is suitable for all forms of Location Plants – Extension Services, Campus Plants, Satellite Plants & Church Plants
The cost for the CPC is $200 per person per intensive which covers food and resources. The total cost per person is $400 to be paid at the commencement of the course. The course is designed for both husband and wife to participate. Costs for travel, accommodation, and recommended reading material/profile tests are to be covered by the participants or their sending church.
C3 Australia covers the significant costs of administration, mentoring, travel, accommodation and food for the trainers. As a commitment to the 2020 vision all trainers give their time freely. The course is currently offered at a highly subsidised rate which is subject to change in the future.
The CPC is currently run at C3 Church Ryde, Sydney. In the case that travel, accommodation, childcare etc costs may be an issue, a request for the application of further subsidy may be considered. Such consideration would require a discussion between the sending church Senior Minister and CPC Director.
