City Church Of Compton

Come learn to develop the church the way Jesus did!

Join us for the Los Angeles, 3DM Learning Community and then decide if are going to continue with us on this training and planning process! We are hosting the an engaging immersion. This is the beginning of a two-year journey and we want to invite you and your team to begin the process of learning how to develop churches the way Jesus did.

We know the power and effectiveness of the early church, but do we know how to function as they did? We’ll be unpacking and training your team in the simple principles, vehicles, practices, and culture that caused the early church to be so impactful.
When: Thursday, November 7th through Saturday, November 9th, 2019. The Immersion begins on Thursday at 12:30 PM with lunch and we finish by 12:00 PM on Saturday.
Where: City Church Compton, 1108 East Peck Street, Compton, CA 90221
Cost: $199/participant for the single event or you can begin paying monthly for the ongoing Learning Community (see below for cost structure). We strongly advise you bring at least two other leaders and/or spouses from your team if possible.
Contact: Please call Pat Dirkse at 562-900-8932 with any questions you may have. We hope to see you there!


What is a 3DM Learning Community?
3DM Learning Community
The heart of God is to save the whole world, but his strategy has always been to start with a few to save the many. This is the work of discipleship: starting small to go big, starting slow to go fast. But why is this so difficult and so few succeeding at the expense of so much time, energy and resource?

We cannot employ a different strategy than Jesus and expect the same results. The passion of 3DM is to train leaders in the simple church principles and strategies employed by Jesus and those who followed in his footsteps that changed the landscape of the Roman Empire over the next 270 years.
A 3DM Learning Community trains church leaders, church planters, campus planters, and other leaders how to build a missional movement with reproduction in its DNA.

Learn the effective tools, language, vehicles and practices for shaping and multiplying Families on Mission that can impact the world as the early church once did. Discover the integrated reality of weekend services, missional communities, small groups and leadership development. Be coached by experienced church leaders and practitioners from different contexts who are prepared to make their successes and failures the springboard for your growth and journey.
