What is Fight Club

Fight Club is a men’s discipleship resource developed by men, for men, to reach men- to turn the tide on mediocrity and cause men to stand and say “not on my watch!”

Over a 10-week journey, men are required to complete weekly challenges within the context of community and accountability. A 3-strike rule applies to all challenges. These challenges change weekly and cover spiritual, relational, and physical assignments, along with Scripture memory and many opportunities to try something new, sometimes intimidating, sometimes just-for-fun.

As a precursor to any weekly assignments, men who join are asked to sign the Fight Club Creed and commit to living by the Fight Club Guidelines.

Don’t take this 10-week challenge unless you are ready for real gut-checking discipline. It will push you to keep up and to reach new levels with Jesus. But once you do, you will be in for the ride of your life and you will be revolutionized by it.

Why Fight Club

If you get the man, you get the family. If you get the family, you get the community. If you get the community, you get the world.

It’s no secret that the disappearance of the Man is a cultural epidemic, affecting our homes, schools, workplaces, churches, and communities.  Fight Club uses Challenge, Accountability, Camaraderie, and Grace; indispensable masculine ingredients that are men’s intrinsic native language 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.

Now’s the time you’ve decided to do whatever it takes be the man you know you can to be; the man God made you to be. Fight Club can help you take the first step.

How Fight Club got Started

Pastor Jim Brown from Grace Community Church (Goshen, IN) started a men’s Bible Study, that was more. It was more than a casual conversation. He was tired of the absence of The Man in the home, the family, the community. He is all about, “don’t be that guy”. Here in Indianapolis, we are forever grateful for his commitment to see guys be better. Fight Club is a franchised ministry that is self-guided, but uniform across all Fight Club chapters. Fight Club Indy, (Grace Church, Noblesville) has not partnered with Grace Community Church in Goshen; rather, we are a chapter of the Fight Club ministry, following it’s guidelines operated independently.

Through God’s provision and guidance, Matt Zappasodi and Bob Loy began leaning in to a desire to see men wake up. As of August 2017, FC414.club has successfully graduated over 200 men over 5 chapters. Men are waking up, fighting for their families, fighting for what is right, and making a difference. Grace Church has opened up their facilities, and we are proud to be offering Fight Club as a next step under the men’s ministry in Noblesville.
Starting in 2016 FC414.club partnered with Kokomo key leaders, and has DOUBLED it’s reach. Ty Rogers, Jason Braun, and Matt Boor are key players in launching this in the Kokomo area and beyond.

Challenge

We are wired for a good challenge. Every week you will be challenged in 4 key ways. If you get the challenges done, you move on to the next week. If you miss a challenge it is a strike, after 3 strikes, you can try again next time. Make it through 10 weeks, and you graduate. You can only wear a Fight Club band or T-shirt if you earn it through 10 challenging weeks. Are you up for a challenge?

Accountability

When left alone, we can drift. It is Biblical to have brothers help each other. Iron sharpens iron. Fight Club has accountability built into it on 3 levels. An accountability partner, a small group squad, and acquiring strikes. Whether you need to give up video gaming, Netflix watching, or other mindless activities, we need to be held accountable to do so.

Camaraderie

Community is so important in growing men, but it is so easily missed. Camaraderie, is a core ingredient of Fight Club. The idea that “we’re in this together”, that there is a band of brothers supporting one another, is pure adrenaline in the veins of this ministry. In Fight Club, this is experienced in four main ways: Relationally, Mentally, Physically, and  Spiritually.

Grace

Through Jesus Christ’s example, we can all experience an undeniable level of Grace through trial. John 3:16. 2 Corinthians 12:9. Ephesians 2:8. Finding out that you can’t do it on your own, opens up the awesome opportunity for others and God to support you through struggle and trial.
