FIGHT CLUB

All of us struggle with pressures and temptations from without and within that can knock us off course and keep us from being the people we were created to be. We want to make sure we are fighting for the right things. As Scripture encourages, we want to be able to say with the Apostle Paul, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” 2 Timothy 4:7

We want to contend with what matters most in life. This challenge is best met in groups that can speak truth into you, hold you accountable and help you to better see the you God has designed you to be. That’s why we are inviting men to join a Fight Club, a group of 3-5 men, who meet together on a consistent basis to spur one another on as we fight in four arenas:
1. We want to fight for our walk with God.
2. We want to fight for our heart and character.
3. We want to fight for our family (and future family).
4. We want to fight for our relationships.

Scripture teaches that we have a spiritual Enemy who is warring against us in each of these arenas, and we are confident that a Fight Club is our best defense in the battle.

WHAT IS A FIGHT CLUB?

A Fight Club, in simple terms, is an accountability group of 3-5 men — a place where friendship and encouragement are met with regular accountability that helps us stay focused on our goals and avoid the pitfalls that can easily sink our hopes. A Fight Club at its heart,  is not a Bible Study or discipleship group (although you will most likely talk about the Scripture often), but it is a group of men who meet consistently to help each other win the fight.

HOW DO I START A FIGHT CLUB?

1. Choose your people.
2. Determine your place + pace. (home, coffee shop, etc.)
3. Determine your day of the week.
4. Show up and commit to being honest and vulnerable.
5. Register your Fight Club below.

WHAT DOES A FIGHT CLUB DO WHEN WE MEET?

Your Fight Club should feel natural, like a bunch of men catching up on life. But, at some point, a Fight Club has to become more than a hang out where we shoot the breeze.

A Fight Club encourages men to be honest and vulnerable about the battles they are facing and the real state of their lives. Guiding the conversation are the key accountability questions that are asked of each member found below.

Every time your Fight Club meets, you will go through a series of questions. These questions will be “the leader” of the group; setting the tone, sparking conversation, and ultimately, growth through honesty. Through these questions, we will all continue to become people who are godly, whole, pure, on mission, and in all areas of our lives, honest.

1.      Have you intentionally pursued your relationship to God
since we last meet?
2.      Have you prioritized meeting Him through the reading of scripture and prayer?
3.      Have you made it a priority to love and lead your family?
4.      Have you looked at anything or been involved with anyone in a way that would compromise your integrity since we last meet?
5.      Have you been honorable and lived on mission leveraging your life for others?
