Why Fight Club?
It’s no secret that the disappearance of the Man is a cultural epidemic, affecting our homes, schools, workplaces, churches, and communities. With increasing desperation, the Church is working to remedy this, but many of our churches, despite their best efforts, are still failing to reach men. That’s because many methods used by churches are missing these indispensible masculine ingredients:
CAMARADERIE. COMPETITION. CHALLENGE.
These things run in our blood. From boyhood, this is our native language. Every man intrinsically “gets” these and Fight Club employs these concepts to accomplish our mission to: AWAKEN Christian men from mediocrity, STRENGTHEN them emotionally, intellectually, physically and spiritually, RESURRECT true masculine community and MOBILIZE them for maximum impact in their families, churches and communities.
The name FIGHT CLUB comes from Nehemiah 4:14: After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the officials, the nobles, and the rest of the people, “Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.”
